As I was driving home from dropping my daughter off at school this morning, I caught myself doing something I’m kind of embarrassed about. I was looking. You know, at guys. Outside. Working. Shirtless.
And then there’s that guy that’s always outside with his giant greyhound. The one in the cowboy hat that never wears a shirt. With the abs. Yeah.
And then there’s the Vin Diesel-looking guy that walks the two little yapper dogs down my street a few mornings a week. He has a couple tattoos on his chest. How do I know? Well, because he’s always shirtless, of course.
Apparently I’m this perv driving around in the momvan scoping out shirtless men on every damn corner. But I’m going to use the excuse they’ve have used forever. I can’t help it. They’re just there. Right in front of me. How can I not see them? Sound familiar? Heheh. Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
So as I was driving around being an unintentional pervert, I started thinking about how some moms like the opposite of shirtless, tan, chiseled-ab types in favor of say…Jack White. Yeah. He’s apparently quite a hit with the mommy set. Hey, I can dig it. I like ‘em all. But he sort of falls into that not-hot type of hot category. And that’s when I decided it was time to revive the not-hot hot survey.
Everyone has one. A person, or two or three, that they’re crushin’ on that is NOT hot in the popular sense of the word. Maybe you dig the slightly nerdy Stephen Colbert? Or the not-so-chiseled chunky Jack Black? Or perhaps you like the big and nerdy types, like Drew Carey. Whatever, ladies… Just dish it!
And guys? If you’re here you HAVE to play. Spill :)
Consider including a brief explanation of who your not-hot crush is because I’m a bit out of the loop and unless they’re tabloid fodder like Brangelina or K-Fed, I might not know them.
EDITED TO ADD: Everyone keeps asking where I live that there are so many shirtless guys running around. I live in Florida. Everything grows like crazy here so there are lawn maintenance companies all over the place. We also have a McMansion-building boom going on so there are an assload of construction workers and tradesman in the neighborhoods I shortcut through to get my daughter to school. Now add to those the fact that it’s really hot here and voila! You have shirtless guys everywhere. That they happen to be attractive (instead of icky buttcrack-showing dudes with huge beer bellies) is clearly an anomaly. I don’t understand it either…
