You know, I guess I am pretty lucky that Jeremy isn't that picky about most things. He rarely complains about what I buy him when it comes to toiletries. And food, well again, he just goes with the flow. But, he does have some favorites that I thought I would share! Ha and he doesn't even know that I am doing it, either. So we will see what he has to say about it after he reads this post!
As I mentioned in one of my Trader Joe's posts, Jeremy LOVES, LOVES, LOVES Just the Clusters Cereal from Trader Joes. Every week before I head to the grocery, I ask, "Is there anything special you want from the store?" and 90% of the time, he will respond, "Are you going to Trader Joe's?? Because I could use some more granola".
Yep ladies, that's all I have to do to make this man happy - HA!!
There are a few things that Jeremy can be very picky about. I learned early on, NEVER to buy Jeremy ANY graphic tees. Because most of the time, I would bring them home, thinking to myself how cool they were. And he would politely tell me that he didn't really care for them. You know, he can be kinda a t-shirt (graphic design) snob. So I have given up on buying clothes for him. He is a fan of Threadless, Brooklyn Industries and Ript to name a few. And most of the time, I have NO IDEA what the tee says or means. So when he gets a new tee in the mail and opens it all-excitedly, I put on my fake smiley face and tell him how cool his new shirt is :-) because I am a supportive wife and all!
Speaking of Tees. When we first got married, he was always complaining about this undershirts being too short. So I went on a quest to find him some new ones. He has a long torso - but is skinny. So I bought him some Tall t-shirts from various brands and all but one brand were too BIG on him. You know "Big & Tall". He isn't "Big" just "Tall"! But he has become a LOYAL fan of Hanes Tall Undershirts!! They are skinny but give him the length he needs to tuck them in.
And now, they have come out with the new Lay Flat t-shirts (they have termed "Bacon Neck") and let me tell you, that when I made a joke about that being silly, Jeremy confirmed that he HATES when his t-shirt collars roll like that. Who knew? So I can't wait to get him some to check out.
A few weeks ago, Sinus Buster sent me a sample to try because of the headaches and sinus issues I was having. I have to admit, unfortunately it didn't help with my headaches. But, Jeremy did get sick shortly after - you know the "Man Cold". He was complaining about his sinuses killing him and he couldn't breathe. So I thought it would be funny to let him try Sinus Buster. You see, when I had tried taking Sinus Buster, it burned terribly. And I thought it would be funny for him to take it and squeal in pain :-)! And it didn't disappoint. He said a few choice words while it was taking effect but then after a few moments his sinuses completely cleared up! And stayed cleared for about 4 hours. No sinus pressure, congestion or headache. He continued using it until his cold was over. He swears by it! And what I like about it: "it is all-natural, which means it does not contain chemicals, additives or preservatives of any kind. It is non habit forming, zinc-free and has no known drug interactions."
And finally, to leave you all with a funny story - I may or may not be slightly sarcastic in the upcoming story. Jeremy is slightly obsessed with ALL things Apple. And really, who in the design world isn't? A few years ago, we were having a discussion about something * great and wonderful* that Apple was coming out with and per usual I wasn't too impressed. So I made a comment to him that if Apple came out with Wet Wipes, he would insist I buy them just because they were Apple. Because come on, Apple does EVERYTHING better! Even producing baby items and competing with the likes of Huggies and Pampers. So I coined the term "A$$ Wipe". They would come in a slick metallic travel case with the Apple Logo and it would be a status symbol among fathers! So now, when Jeremy comes home and raves about some new gadget or an update to one that he already owns, I simply just say "A$$ Wipe" and walk away which usually brings a reaction of eye rolling and him following continuing to sing the praises of Apple. You would think he would get the hint one day that I REALLY don't care! Ha!
Okay, so I have a confession. I did ask Jeremy after writing this post if there was anything else I could add to the list. You know things that he is picky about and this is what he said:
Crappy looking Greeting Cards
Okay, not exactly what I was looking for. So I gave him another chance and I said, "No Jeremy, you know things that you love."
Well I am pretty picky about my tennis shoes. You know I went through that decade of having to have Adidas Superstars. And now I'm still pretty picky about what shoes I wear.
And that my friends, sums up what I have to deal with on a daily basis! But I LOVE HIM!!
