Lesson Learned

So I've shared with you some about my sweet (ok, mostly sweet) little boys who mean the world to me. Now let me share a funny story about my husband and one of the many lessons I've learned since being with him.
Back in the day, Channing and I used to enjoy a little show by the name of Felicity. Remember it? It was a show based on the life of a girl who followed her high school crush to college. Anyway, in the show there was a guy named Ben (look to the right, and you'll see his picture). Ben was Felicity's crush and was an attractive guy (ok, he was really cute!). I used to tease Channing about having a crush on him, and it was kind of a joke in our house.
Our first Christmas together as a married couple, we decided to go buy a Christmas tree...a real one. On the way to the Christmas tree place (for the lack of a better name), we stopped at Sonic for a Route 44 strawberry limeade (delish!). So I'm slurping my strawberry limeade the rest of the way there. It was fantastic.
We get to the tree place, and a guy comes over to help us. As surely as I'm typing this, that guy looked like Ben's clone! Channing thought so too. Of course, in my mind this was the perfect opportunity to tease Channing. So I start talking about how he looks like Ben, and this and that. Then I had some conversation with "Ben". I was chatting him up, having a good 'ole time (do you see where I'm going with this?).
He gets the tree cut, ties it to our roof, Channing tips him (a really small tip; he had no idea about tipping Christmas tree guys, but that's a whole 'nother blog).
With our tree securely tied to our roof and "Ben" in the fumes of our truck, I decide to give myself a glance in the visor mirror. Guess what I saw? A huge (and when I say huge, I mean HUGE) piece of strawberry was stuck in my teeth...right up front! I mean, you would have had to be totally blind to have missed it!!! And guess who is NOT blind? Yep! My hubby! I said, "Channing! I cannot believe you didn't tell me I had a huge strawberry in my teeth!" Of course, he thought it was hilarious.
Teasing my husband about cute guys...not a good idea. Got it! Lesson learned. :)

That is hilarious! Aren't strawberry limeades the best? I like to drink it all and eat the strawberries that are at the bottom and the ice together...yum! I know that wasn't the thing you were mostly blogging about but I got side tracked once I read strawberry limeade! =)
I'm so happy that you have a blog! Now I can see what's going on in the King world every day!
Love you!

I mean, this happened like 6 years ago, and it still makes me laugh. Can you imagine how much Channing must have been cracking up inside? Priceless!
