I know, you all saw that title and thought, “How sweet, she is going to praise the virtues of her sweet Gary of Hey Nanny Nanny and Janie Knight fame.” Well, of course he is the perfect husband, but this post is not about him.
For those who have been following along, my daughter Jana is doing a semester abroad. That is college-speak for I will tolerate a few hours a week of class so I can be in a different city (sometimes two) every weekend. This weekend found her in Amsterdam, with a side trip to Brussels. When she is traveling I usually wake up to a BBM (blackberry messenger message – it’s like a text for you non-crackberry heads). This morning I found this photo with no message. It was hard to read on my bberry so I had to email it to myself to see what it was.
If there was any doubt that I was genetically linked to this girl you will now understand that I would have to be her mother. Ahhh, the Inflatable Perfect Husband. This must be the 20-year-old version of the Grow Your Own Parents that I bought her in middle school when we were getting on her last nerve. I particularly like the french word for inflatable… gonflable. How do you pronounce that? Anyone? I took Spanish so it is lost on me but I love the way it looks.
I shudder to think what the Inflatable Perfect Wife has behind her back.

Can you ask J to pick me up one?
funny, i told her she should have bought at least a case, we could surely get rid of them!
Does he come with health insurance and a pension plan?
yeh, but no dental!
Only five roses?!!! I guess that’s European perfection.
Aw, isn’t it nice when the kids “get” us?? My daughters would’ve picked me up a case of those. You know, in case one wasn’t enough.
always good to have a spare, right?
