Last night Mr. John and I were curled up on the couch getting caught up on our DVR shows while simultaneously checking email and playing games. yeah, we’re romantic like that. I start snort laughing and Mr. John looks up from his Bejeweled game with a curious look.
“What are you laughing at?”
“Have you heard of Ryan Gosling’s “hey girl” meme?”
“…Ryan Gosling’s what now?”
So I show him several of these hilarious things that are floating around the interwebs including this one created by the snort-inducing Kristan of Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.
|Confessions of a Cookbook Queen has several “hey girl”s that are HILARIOUS! Especially for food bloggers|
Mr. John stared at the picture with a confused look on his face, but he soldiered on having a true desire to understand. After several minutes, hundreds of “hey girl”s later, and a deep jealousy of Ryan quickly developing, a lightbulb finally went on over his head:
“You should do a “Hey girl” cookie.”
We’ve been married almost 14 years now, but in that moment I truly knew how much Mr. John loved me. I ran into the kitchen to grab a leftover iced cookie to paint on, only to find it had been eaten. All the cookies in the jar were unfrosted so I quickly frosted one and went to bed, disappointed that I had to wait until morning to paint the “hey girl” cookie and let the royal icing set.
This morning I woke up, got the kids showered, dressed and fed and shooed them off to school. I quickly painted my little “hey girl” tribute cookie and as soon as I finished I found out I wasn’t the only one who had a “Hey girl” project going. That darling Mr. John sent me these to my email!
I think it’s safe to say that he gets it now! There were a couple others… but I think I’ll just keep those to myself! Mr. John, I absolutely adore you. I love how you inspire me and are not afraid to send me pictures of Ryan Gosling. You are the best!
I hope you have a fantastic day.
