Your husband had told me you were the most beautiful woman he'd ever met. I didn't expect the most beautiful woman I'd ever met.

The results of a recent study on happiness in marriage were released yesterday and among other things they found this--

Here's a story for all the guys who will never be voted the World's Sexiest Man. A new study suggests ugly men with beautiful wives are happiest.

I'm not sure what that means in the big picture but it does go a long way towards explaining this--

Although this is a little worrisome--

Psychologists at the University of Tennessee have found that in marriages where the husband is more attractive than his wife, the man is often unhappy, and that leads to trouble.

Because as beautiful as my wife is, it has to be a concern to both of us that the adjective used most often to describe me is "Clooneyesque."

UPDATE - Because Fran demanded pictures. This is me performing my one man show "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son" at the Met and not singer/ actress Rosemary Clooney as it may appear at first glance.

Ha! I spit coffee out of my nose. I wasn't even drinking coffeee so it was strange.

I think that you mean "buffoony-esque," not "Loony-Toony-esques." That describes Dr. Monkerstein.

What can I say after these existing comments?

Clooneyesqe? Send photos. I'd like to think I am in the beautiful woman/ugly man kind of pairing... KIDDING MR HE IS! He is actually watching me to this.

Given that you could find shelter from a hurricane under Clooney's chin, I wouldn't put you in that category.

Now I know the reason for my unending joy! The study, not your wonderful one-man show, though it was indeed magical and the veal was to die for.

Dean Wormer said...


Thanks for clearing that up.


Clooney photo is up. See, I told you.


You could find shelter from a perfect storm under Clooney's chin. Ba-da-bing!


So happy you enjoyed the show and the veal. :)
