So, I’m certain that most of you are aware that hubby is a little quirky. It’s equally what makes me love him and roll my eyes at him at the very same time!
Sometimes the things that come out of his mouth are so comical that you sit there, anxiously awaiting his admission that he’s kidding.. but usually this never comes. I mean honestly, who needs to eat their cheese flat or requires specific bowls for specific foods? But, even after all these years, he continues to find new ways to surprise me with his oddities!
Another obviously nutty quirk weaseled it’s way to the surface while we were on vacation last week.
Let me set the scene for you.
We’re lounging in the sun by the pool at our resort. We’re lathered with sunscreen. We’re listening to the ocean and watching the boats go by. The pool princess is ordering towels from the cocktail waiters (for more on this click here) and hubby feels the need to quench his thirst with a diet coke.
The waiter returns shortly thereafter with an ice cold diet coke for hubby. This is when the fun begins…….
“Oooooooohhhhh….. ooooooohhhhhh…. Hon, look! They have the good ice!” Hubby says with unusual enthusiasm.
“Uhmmm ok, the good ice?”
“Yeah…. they have the ice cubes with the holes in the middle!!!” He’s giddy like a school boy…….
“Ahhh, I see. The good ice.” I have no idea what’s he’s talking about… but, I bite.
“Ok, honey… what does that mean, the good ice?”
“Well, each piece has a hole so you can put your straw right through the ice cube. And, this let’s you create a ‘Super Frosty Zone’ “. He’s totally serious…..
“A Super Frosty Zone?” Not sure why I’m following him down this path…..
“YES! A Super Frosty Zone. It allows you to get an extra shot of cold on each sip as it passes through the zone!!”
Oh boy….. I can’t help but smile at his craziness….
“And, you know what else?” He says with increasing excitement….
“You mean to tell me there’s more?”
“Oh yeah! If you can line up a whole bunch of ice cubes and put the straw through them all, you can create a ‘Super Frosty Highway’ ”
“A Super Frosty Highway?”
“Heck yeah!….. This resort is AWESOME!”
And, there ya have it. We’re at an all inclusive resort with 24 hour room service, 4 restaurants, a pool, snorkeling and a spa and hubby’s trip is made by the ice cubes they put into his drink!
