My Husband Knows Me Better Than I Know Myself

It’s true. He’s got me pegged. He knows that I will fall asleep on the couch whenever we turn on a movie even though I’ll always insist that I’m going to stay awake for it.

And he knows that I’m celebrity boy crazy even though I’ve never brought one copy of US Weekly home.

Here’s how he knows: Over the weekend we saw Tower Heist. It was really funny and I laughed the whole way through, aside from one scene (no spoiler) that actually made my palms sweat. At the end of the movie I said, “Nice pick. I liked that movie.” To which my husband replied, “I know you did, you love those Affleck boys.”

“What? Why do you think that I love Casey Affleck?”

“Because you laughed at him the most,” he said.

OMG am I that obvious?

It’s probably pretty normal for your husband to know who your celebrity crush is. Keith knows I have the HOTS for Tom Brady. But Ben Affleck is my old high school crush (Remember Armageddon? Oh yea!) and I have never really gushed about him....recently. Also, I’ve never really had a crush on Casey Affleck. But this is what I was thinking during the movie:

“Oh Casey Affleck is in this movie…I forgot…that’s exciting.”

“Wow…Casey Affleck has really nice skin.”

“Casey Affleck…was he in The Town…I really liked that movie…he should have been in that movie.”

“Listen to his voice…That Casey Affleck…so raspy.”

“I really like those Affleck boys.”

It’s official. My husband is a mind reader and I’m in love with Casey Affleck.

I don’t have a thoughtful question for you today, just this: Does anyone else think about Casey Affleck? Tell me I'm not alone. 


  1. I love his sense of humor. He knows how to tell a joke (or say something funny) in a way no one else would.

  2. Oh no, I'm not sure we can be blog buddies anymore- my hubs HATES Tom Brady with a passion ;-) I agree that Casey is a cutie!

  3. I grew up outside of Boston. It's no wonder I love Ben, Casey and Tom!!!!

  4. ...and Matt Damon. Don't forget him! (p.s. me too, I grew up in Massachusetts! I don't know if you knew that :P)

  5. No way!! I didn't know that. Where in MA?

  6. I'm currently having a big crush on Casey too! I really like his voice and his eyes. He's so handsome!!
    What do you think about this sexual harassment lawsuits? I just can't believe it!
