Witch and Wizard

I was making dinner one night a few weeks ago while Wizard was watching UFC (cage fighting…mortal style). I happened to notice one of the fighters. “Wizard, who is that fighter wearing red shorts?”

Wizard turned from the TV to look at me.

I might have been staring at the sweaty fighter with big gleaming muscles.

“He’s not Wing Slayer Worthy,” Wizard proclaimed.

I looked back to Wizard and saw his narrowed eyed, caught-you-staring-at-another-man look. Trying to distract him, I said, “And YOU know who is Wing Slayer Worthy? YOU decide?”

“Yes,” he proclaimed smugly. “I am a wizard, I know these things.”

I rolled my eyes and muttered, “Whatever.” Then I turned my attention to the TV again. “Just so I know, what is the guy’s name in the red shorts?” I was planning some quality Goggle time, thinking…

The TV suddenly changed channels to a sitcom rerun. “Look away, Witch, there’s nothing to see here.”

I never did find out the sweaty fighter’s name, dang it.

People ask me if these stories are real—they really are. We actually have conversations like this. Not sure what that says about us…reality challenged, maybe? LOL!

    Jen, I know how Witch can outsmart Wizard. Check out There’s a fighters link with pics and bios of all the fighters. There’s also a photo link. Bet you could find you guy in the red shorts ;) If not, there are other candidate to choose from. Trust me, I already looked at a few :) Wizards may be smart, but witches are smart and devious :D

    LOL, you guys kill me. I think it’s great that he’s into the whole ‘Wing Slayer Worthy’ thing and can have fun with it.

    Dawn’s right. You can probably find the fighter you’re looking for. Just tell Wizard you’re researching character traits for your next book. =o)

    I agree with B.E., it is awesome that you and Wizard can have fun with this. Some guys would not be able to handle it.

    Thinking I’m going to go check out Dawn’s website. There’s sure to be some good eyecandy ;)

    B.E. do you love your new computer????

    We always have randomly weird conversations like this. And I use that “research” line all the time. Isn’t it great, LOL!

    Val, Wizard thinks the blog is funny. People at his office sometimes read it too. I don’t know how he puts up with me :-)

    Keep us informed if you find special eye candy! I’ve bookmarked the site to look at after I send in copy edits.

    Cecile, ROTFL!!! I have to tell Wizard that one–a Powerhouse Couple!

    You are a good witch to watch those fights! I watch for the same reason, of course. Because we’re supportive of their interests…

    Now wait, how is sneaking in the lair being GOOD?????

    Silver, hunting hunks are you?

    I don’t know if he was jealous, but it was funny. I had no idea he’d figure out what I asked for.

    HA! I love it. I think it’s great that you can kid around about that stuff. It’s good that the Wizard has a sense of humor.

    It reminds me of another conversation that happened at my house . . .

    (hubby sitting at the computer)WHY is there a folder with pictures of naked men on the computer??

    (me sitting in the other room with daughter)They’re not naked. They’re half naked. There is a difference.

    (hubby)Uh-huh. So explain to me why?

    (me) They’re for the LSM club on Mondays on my blog. I have followers. They expect such things. Every Monday.

    (hubby)So every Monday you deliver porn to your followers?

    (me trying not to laugh out loud)It’s not porn. They have on pants. (under my breath)Most of the time….

    Yeah, aren’t hubby’s great?? :D

    Jen, BTW just read your blog over at MSW from Monday. I sent it to my friend who is dipping her toes back into the relationship pool.

    Thanks for letting us know that it isn’t just us. ;)

    “Erika, thanks so much,” she says quite sarcastically. “Gigglesnorting coffee through my nose has helped my sinus infection.”

    That was too funny!

    Erika, too funny! Like your husband didn’t know…but I’m thinking he had a great time making your explain! Porn? No, no, it’s art!!!

    Thank you on the MSW blog. That got far more response than I expected. Best of luck to your friend!

    The relationship I have with my computers is deep and meaningful. LOL Daughter’s been laughing at me ever since it got here. I’m like a kid with a new puppy. Now I just need to make this thing do all the tricks my old one could – and better ones it could never hope to do. =o)

    I think what you and Wizard have is wonderful. Congratulations to both of you.
