Jack & Anita

“Hey, Anita,” I said to my wife as she walked into the kitchen. “How’s your sister?”

“Fine,” replied Anita. “She noticed the new earrings you got me for my birthday.”

“Oh,” I said. “What’d she have to say about ‘em?”

“Oh, she said ‘Those must be real diamonds.’”

“Yeah,” I smiled. “But how could she tell?”

“Because,” smiled Anita, “She said no one buys fake diamonds that small.”

“Ouch,” I winced.

“Speaking of gifts,” she said. “Why aren’t you wearing that new belt I got you?”

“I dunno,” I said, cracking open a tub of yogurt. “It’s kinda flashy. I don’t really like being too flashy.”

“It’s brown,” she remarked.

“Maybe if it was dark brown,” I said, dropping a handful of raisins in the yogurt. “Besides, I like my belt.”

“But look at that thing,” she laughed. “How many holes have you poked in it with a screwdriver?”

“I dunno,” I shrugged. “I haven’t really been keeping count.”


“No, more like seven,” I corrected her.

“How’s tomorrow’s blog post coming?”

“I gotta killer idea. I’m gonna go on a hilarious crazy-mad rant about things I hate like teeny-tiny serving sizes and fat people in little scooters I was gonna call it ‘The Jack of All Tirades’…”

“Don’t quit your day job.”

“Hey, I think it’s pretty good…”

“No, I mean we just got our property tax bill,” she replied. “For God’s sake, please don’t quit your day job.”

  9. dont forget with all those holes if the end gets to long you can always trim it off and keep on rocking ;-p

  10. I like your wife! She keeps you on your feet, does she not?

  11. Is a hole in a belt like a notch on the bedpost?

    Just wondering....


  12. Adorable couple. I wanna see the new belt.

    Would it be too mean to brag that our property tax bill is $2500? I heart Colorado ;)

  17. Need to see the belt. It is motivational!

  18. We want to see the belt!!!

    Guest post from Anita would be really nice too.

  19. you are very lucky to have Anita..but I'm sure she feels the same way about you, i know that we are all lucky we found you Jack! Now throw out that old belt and wear the new one with PRIDE, THAT'S AN ORDER, I may be short but I've been lifting weights ;-)

  20. Jack, I'd like to see a picture of the current(old) belt next to the new, nicer, flashier, fit-correctly belt. Put a tape measure between them and see how much longer the old belt is than the new belt. I bet it's a fantastic number!

  21. Pretty funny, there, Jack! Vee at

  22. Love the pic!!!!!

    Not giving up the belt cause it keeps you accountable to where you once were???
