Men and Air Instruments. WHY?

Women, I have a very important question to ask, about a problem that is effecting marriages across the globe.

How are we supposed to respond when our husbands break out into air instruments? For the life of me, I have no idea. It baffles me every time.

Are they performing for us?

Do they want us to swoon?

Why must they go on for so long? And scrunch up their face and close their eyes?


Why do they do it?!

What do they want from us?!

And half of the time they aren't even playing to the beat of the music or even the correct instrument in my husbands case! Maybe that's a secret desire buried down deep in every man's soul...I'll have to read Wild at Heart and see if it is mentioned! :-)

it's not about making you women swoon, steph - it's about being a rockstar, if only in our own minds. i'll wager that [nearly] all men harbor a dream of being on stage with the lights and the fans and the pyrotechnics and the tight jeans and trendy t-shirt and a vintage gibson les paul in our hands wailing out a face-melting solo, speaking straight to the hearts of our fans.

we could trade in our air instruments for a microphone and start singing, but you'd be begging us to take up the air guitar again.

HAHA!!! You crack me up, Steph.

Actually, I'm the one who does this in our relationship...I'd be happy to point Monty to your blog as he would most likely share in your sentiments. ;)

you think that's bad? just wait until your husband rents a documentary about the international air guitar competition. sit through that for an'll be even MORE confused than you are now!

Steph said...

Oh my gosh, Mandi! I would need to be drugged. Seriously!!!
There's an air guitar competition?!!!
And there's a documentary about it?!!!

The fact that you didn't gouge your eyes out while you were watching that makes you my hero...on second thought...I haven't known you that long...maybe you have a glass eye that I don't know about. Do you have a glass eye that I don't know about?

I have to laugh out loud over this, all my old boyfriends played the air guitar, I used to say I married my husband because he never did.
