As you may know, I celebrated my 40th birthday last weekend. It was a special weekend.
- I survived the Rapture
- The world didn’t end
- I made it to 40 years old without much consequence….
Unless of course you count the fact that I was so hung over on Saturday I literally couldn’t get out of bed OR the fact that I not only have The Mayor living in my house but I now also have a Captain.
Please let me explain.
Hubby threw me a wonderful birthday party. He invited all of my friends and really worked hard to make sure it was a special night. He worked so hard to make it a great party that he booked a comedian to perform. A comedian named Goumba Johnny.
Now, before you judge…… Ok, wait…. go ahead and judge. His name is Goumba Johnny after all. And heck, let’s just say, his name suits him.
(now is when you can start that mental conversation with yourself….. “Gee, don’t they live in Jersey?” “I knew all along they were guidos”. “Yeah, sure… they don’t know Snooki“.) But I assure you that, while we live at the Jersey Shore and while this does probably conjure up images of the MTV Jersey Shore… that’s so far from the type of people that live here. It’s far more indicative of the people that flock to this area all summer and wreak havoc on our ability to actually drive anywhere (but, I digress..)
Back to Goumba Johnny.
He was very entertaining and it was a great birthday present from hubby. HOWEVER, Goumba (we’re tight now, so I can shorten his name) seemed to be unclear about hubby’s true name. So all night, while he was performing, anytime he referred to hubby he called him Ron.
Hubby’s name is incredibly similar to Ron, but it’s NOT Ron.
Hubby eternally answers to the wrong name…. because many people make similar mistakes.
I constantly ask hubby why he doesn’t correct people, when they call him by the wrong name and he says….. why bother?!
There are probably people all over the place.. maybe some reading this blog RIGHT NOW who are saying…. “Oh crap, his real name isn’t Ron?”!
Back to my birthday.
For reasons unbeknownst to me, I hate it when people call him by the wrong name. So, while hubby is merrily going about his business, I am correcting people all over to say his proper name. And, I feel the need to do this as Goumba refers to Ron for the 10th time during his act.
And then….. (after profusely apologizing) he dons hubby with a new nickname….. Captain Ron.
(Oh no…. what have I done……….hubby now thinks he’s a Captain) And, so it begins.
People are calling hubby Captain Ron. They are posting on FB about Captain Ron. And how, hubby is declaring that he wants a “Captain’s Hat” to complete his ensemble. Just what I needed a Mayor who is now a Captain.
I have just one question… which Captain do you think he wants to be (I’m pretty sure they all have different hats) 🙂
