Hello August.

Hot damn! Time seems to fly by quicker than I thought it would. It´s August, my beloved bookish squad.

Instead of doing a book cover post, a monthly recap post or something heavily book related but I decided not to get too bookish this time. No. I want to welcome you all and the beginning of the new month by letting you in on something personal. Something that could possibly cost me a few followers. An insider joke, if you will. Okay, it´s not much of an insider joke when I´m the only one who knows about it ( and also finds it amusing as hell ) but hey… It´ll be fine. Don´t worry, a book is involved so this post won´t be completely bookless. All in the name of books, right?

I want to share what I found on one of my late-night searches for book covers.

 

 

For this to make any sense I think it would be wise to start with a little personal fun fact.

My husband. He´s a wonderful guy. We´ve been together for 19 years ( married 14 years ). What I love most about him are the many quirks he has. You know, the stuff people do that seem odd sometimes. That and his non-existent humor ( bless him for trying, though ).

Well, there´s something I call the “Stefan pose”. It´s where he stands like he´s preparing to analyze something. Hands on hips and a serious stare. Much like this:

 

Stefan
A most recent Stefan Pose

 

Don´t waste your time trying to figure out what he´s analyzing. He´s looking at a waterfall. There were no ancient drawings or signs to read. * sigh * I´ve learned it´s best to let him do his thing. Don´t ask questions.

Well, he does this all the time. No matter where we are, who we´re with… He´ll whip out that move unintentionally. I have this type of pic for every vacation we´ve been on.

Okay, so now you know about the `Stefan Pose`. It´s time to get to my private joke.

The other night I was looking for specific book covers for upcoming posts. I stumbled upon a gem that had me laughing all night. I´m talking a hysterical laughing fit with tears and hiccups. I usually laugh this intense when I watch comedies or favorite movies ( Christmas Vacation- The squirrel scene ). When I saw this book cover I just couldn´t.

 

 

Best Book Cover pose!! Like Stefan
The `Stefan Pose` on a book cover!!

 

 

Do you see it? Do you?!

Ever since I spotted that cover I cannot unsee the bogus image of my husband playing a part in what looks like a romance novel. My husband. Stefan. In a romance novel.

 

 

I don´t think I´ll ever get over this.

 

Yes, I´m fully aware that there´s a huge possibility that you don´t find this funny. I have a very odd sense of humor sometimes. My deepest apologies. I can be weird.

Before things can get any weirder I think it would be best if I logged off for the day.

I hope you enjoyed this little personal tidbit. If not, just leave me a comment below. I´m not sure I´ll be able to justify my humor but I´ll see what I can do to make up for this weird welcoming post for August.

 

Sending out lots of bookish love.

  1. OMG, i’m crying… i’m sitting in the office, reading your post, and snorting like a mofo cuz i’m trying not to be obvious, but of course it just makes it worse 😀 😀
    That book is definitely a Stefan Pose and i wouldn’t be surprised if your husband were somehow involved… 😀

    1. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I know what you went through, although… I didn´t have to keep myself from bursting out when I saw the comparison. Right? So the Stefan Pose. I think that´s my 2019 win. Not much can top that for me. He doesn´t know about this yet and I don´t think I´ll be able to show him without breaking into another fit. HAHAHA. I´m so happy you saw the Stefan Pose. Makes me feel better about my vicious side. HAHAHAHA
