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.
Crickets everywhere were chirping as he paused.
I was afraid.
Finally, he replied, "Kevin James. Yeah. He's cool."
********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!
