At least I didn't think tuna was chicken

Time:  Approximately 2 months ago, Sunday night.

Setting:  Hubs and me in the living room. Cozy. Slices of pizza in our laps.  Smiles on our faces.  Pittsburg Steelers preparing to play some team I don't know on the television.  Faith Hill dancing like a moron in the intro.

Me:  (absorbing grease on my pizza with several napkins) I'm excited for this game! 

Brad: That's just because you think Mike Tomlin is hot.

Me: (jumping on the sofa a little bit)  I KNOW.  He is hot in that really calm, nothing-can-ever-bother me way.  It's so attractive.

Hubs: (rolling eyes) If I said that about some woman, you'd kill me.

Me: (staring at Hubs blankly) But you know I don't mean it when I say it.

Hubs:  Oh, but I do?

Me: (snorting) Duh.  Men always mean what they say, but they say it all jokingly about it so they can say it and get away with it.

Hubs:  And you never do that.

Me:  (shocked) NEVER.

Hubs: (smirking) So you expect me to believe that when you jokingly say you think Ryan Reynolds is sex on a stick, you don't really mean that.

Me:  (baffled) I've never said that to you!

Hubs: No, but you've said it to other people.

Me: Well you weren't supposed to hear it.

Hubs:  (rolling eyes) Whatever.

Me: (switching back to watching television) Ooh, you know who else is kind of cute in a weird way?

Hubs: (watching Faith Hill shake her leather-clad booty all over the screen) Mmm.

Me:  Troy Balmahalo

Hubs:  You mean Troy Polamalu?

Me:  (nodding) Yeah, him.  The Head 'N Shoulders commercial guy with the long hair.  He'd look hotter if he cut his hair off.

Hubs: His hair is part of his culture, babe.

Me:  Oh right.  Cuz isn't he Honolulan?

Hubs: (stopping mid-bite of his pizza) Isn't he what?

Me:  Hon...o...lu...lan.  Like from Honolulu.

Hubs:  He's from Hawaii...which would make him Hawaiian.

Me: (reminding myself to fully think things through in the future)  Boy, that Faith Hill is really hot, huh?

what's a honolulan?

I was thinking Troy was from Hololulu, so I thought he was Honolulan. Stupid, I realize. I don't even think he is from Honolulu.

You're right, Kim. He was born and raised in California. He is of Samoan descent. But a hunk regardless.

Polamalu sounds similar to Honolulu. Honest mistake!
