Last night I went out for dinner with friends in Carlton, an area that is famous for its Italian food and cafes. It also has a couple of pretty good bookstores, including a Borders.
While we were on the way there, Bon Jovi came onto the radio and I said something to my son along the lines of "Do you know who is singing this song?", and proceeded to tell him. Of course, my self-censor switch was turned off, because at the end of that I said "And it doesn't hurt that he is totally HOT!" to which my 9 year old replies "so you LOVE him". No, I don't LOVE him, but he is a very fine specimen of manhood along with someone else that I could mention but won't just yet!!.
So later, we are in Borders and I am looking for something to buy (they didn't have any of the books that I wanted to buy) when I say to my son "I am thinking about getting a Robin Hood DVD". Now bear in mind that we are standing in the kids area, and he says "oh yes, let's get this one!" and proceeds to hand me a Disney DVD that has Robin Hood, The Fox and the Hound and something else on it. Self censor switch still not turned on, I say "I don't want that one. I want the one with Richard Armitage in because he is hot!". The woman behind me turned around and gave me the strangest look. Perhaps I shouldn't be discussing the hotness of certain men with my son in the kids section of Borders.
Anyway, I spent enough money to get a discount on parking - spend $50 to save $6 on parking...I'm sure there's some logic in there somewhere - and I came home with the complete series one of Robin Hood! I've never watched the show before so I hope it's good!
