I’ve mentioned that I’ve been having an incredibly busy time at work lately. This includes many long work days and a heck of a lot of evening events & dinners. BUT, I happen to work in an industry that also comes with a variety of perks… and last week I got to enjoy one of these perks.
(I’ve never been all that good “writing out” onomatopoeia. AND, the mere fact that I just got to incorporate the word onomatopoeia into a blog post has just about Made-My-Week!)
Anyhooo… if you have no idea what I’m talking about just click on one of those words above and you’ll get to listen to the audio clip that hubby had to hear every 12.6 seconds, all week long. But of course, since I was personally singing my version, it was far more soulful and vibrant and ok, who am I kidding….. probably just irritating….
You see, due to a corporate partnership, I was lucky enough to host a group from work on a private tour through ESPN Studios in Bristol,CT (which, by the way, is in the middle of butt-frickin’ no where!).
So, all week long I had to remind hubby that I was going to ESPN and he was not. Yeah, I’m a pain like that…….
It was actually a very cool experience. We toured the entire campus; control rooms, sets, research areas, radio studios and so on. We saw a few “celebrities”, you know the kind you’d find on SportsCenter or Baseball Tonight.
Afterwards, I remembered that I had a hubby (ok, just kidding) and I bought him a few items from the gift shop… See, I really am a good wife….
So, when I came home I was relaying some details of my day to my jealous hubby and I said something like… “You want to know one of the coolest things I saw??”
Hubby replied: “Sure”
Me: “Ok, well they took us in this one room to see a promo tape they were working on for ESPN in 3D!”
Hubby: “Are you sure you want to tell me this…..”
Me: “It was so cool”
Hubby: “I’m just saying… it’s in your best interest not to tell me this….”
Me: “What do you mean? It was wild, they gave us 3D glasses and we watched this video compilation of all these different sports. The 3D was AMAZING! It was awesome the way some of the players jumped out at you, how real it felt, how…..”
Hubby: “I don’t think you’re listening to me….. you should not be telling me this…..”
Me: “What do you mean?”.
Hubby: “Probably not a good idea to tell me how cool the 3D was….”
And then, slowly, I begin to realize what’s happening……
Me: “Uhmmmm…. yeah, NO.. you are not getting a 3D TV”
Hubby: “I told you, it wasn’t a good idea to tell me….”
Me: “Yeah, but it was truly really cool. The spectators were, like, coming out of the TV. The coolest were the shots of the snowboarders & skateboarders as they jumped off their half pipes in the air… they were suspended there in 3D…. it was so friggin’ awesome!!”
Hubby: “You’re doing it again….”
Me: “But……ahhhh….. “
Hubby: “Now, I want a 3D TV”
Me: “Ok, I’ll shut up now. It wasn’t a very good trip anyway. By the way……I brought you this hat……..”
If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you probably realize that I’ve opened up a whole can of worms and that, quite possibly, I am my own worst enemy. If you have no idea what I’m talking about I suggest you read some of the previous posts about my dear hubby and our TV “history”. You can find some of them here, here and here.
