my captain.

Yesterday was free comic book day so my two nerds, I mean boys, I mean husband and son, disappeared for a few hours to hit a bunch of comic book stores. But I didn’t know it was also a Mother’s Day shopping trip. Oh no, not at some other stop along the way. Actually at a comic book store — not exactly a place where I’d shop. But apparently, my son and daughter had come up with a plan ahead of the boys’ nerd trip.

I love that my children associate me with two things they know I love (both of which say something about me, but I’m not sure exactly what)… television and men.

So I am now the proud and very happy owner of my very own…



I love him. Perhaps I’ll keep him by the bed and have naughty dreams about him. The actual man, not the toy figure.


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    I love Killian! Jealous Hook lover here… and hey, if the fictional men we love reveal inner truths about ourselves, I’m in deep trouble, because I’m totally #teamLucifer, too.
