Celebrity Look Alike? Ummmmm . . . yeah . . . .

"Honey? What movie star do I look like?" hubs asked as he raised his eyebrow and displayed his profile to me across the dinner table.

This, of course, is a loaded question. It is like when a wife asks her husband, "Does this make me look fat?" The husband's answer is wrong no matter what he replies. I knew that I was stepping out of the frying pan and into the fire with this conversation.

So, like a deer caught in the headlights, I went for a flattering guess. "Ummm. Tom Cruise?" After all, the Danger Zone, the theme from Top Gun, was playing over the loudspeaker at the restaurant.

"Tom Cruise? He's crazy, psycho crazy!" he emphasized. "Really?!?" he questioned. I could tell he was a little offended at my choice so I explained.

"No! Not really. I just thought that you asked me because of the song that was playing. I thought that you were being goofy."

His expression softened and he replied, "Whew!" (I guess that being crazy trumps being good looking in hubs' book. ) He re-posed himself, complete with eyebrow lifted, and then said, "Try again."

I seriously had no idea where he was going with this line of questions. So, I went with my gut.

"Kevin James?"

Crickets everywhere were chirping as he paused.

I was afraid.

Very afraid.

Finally, he replied, "Kevin James. Yeah. He's cool."

Whew, exactly!

********On a side note . . . Kevin James IS hilarious ( as is hubs!), and his dancing skills make me yearn for my Depends. Seriously, y'all. Check out this clip from Hitch.

And to hubs . . . Kevin ain't got nothin' on your moves!  Q-tip??  Ha!  You laugh in the face of the Q-tip!


  1. Kevin James is the man! Mall Cop is so dumb, but he saved it and made it hysterical, despite the stupidity. Love him!

  2. Here are some of the celebs people say my hub looks like: Rich from Imagination Movers, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Jim Carrey. But, I think he is hotter than all those guys!

  3. This is Hubby here! I would like to add that even though I look(act?) like Kevin James. I have been told I talk like "Farmer Ted" from Sixteen Candles. (You know the Geek, fast-talker with braces). So, to make this clear, my wife married a Kevin James look-a-like and an Anthony Michael Hall sound-a-like. I swear she was sober when she said yes.

  4. For the record, I love Sixteen Candles, Kevin James, AND Anthony Michael Hall (Yay for Brat Pack!). You two are so cute together!



I love, love, love to read your comments!
