The Best Husband in the World

“I have the best husband in the world.”

I see this status on Facebook at least once a day. When I do and it wasn’t posted by my wife I am tempted to reply “I’m not married to you!” I never do this because Facebook hasn’t yet provided us with sarcasm font and I don’t want to upset anyone unnecessarily (unless there are Krispy Kreme donuts involved).

Because I see this so often, I propose a competition to determine who really is the best husband in the world. But it’s not just any competition–it’s a one event competition

What event? One I am sure to win, of course.

Thumb wrestling.

Why am I so confident that I wouldn’t get beat? Have you ever seen my thumb?

Here it is:

my thumb

Boo-Yah!

That, ladies and gentlemen, is an unbeaten thumb.

If that decided it, I would be the undisputed best husband in the world!

But that doesn’t decide it.

And I don’t have to be the best husband in the world.

Instead, I have to strive to be the best husband for my wife.

More than that, I want to be the best husband for my wife.

If you’re married, I hope you want to be the best husband or wife for your spouse.

And I hope you’re ready to thumb wrestle next time I see you.

What is your go-to, can’t lose event?

  1. My go to move is holding my breath until I pass out. No one seems as committed to it as I am so I win every time. I kid, I kid. Great post. Do you allow for other fingers to tag in during thumb wrestling? A kid pulled that on me once and I took him down to Chinatown for that nonsense.

  2. I dare anyone challenge me in a spelling bee… I was county champion twice and went to the state competition 3 times.

    Thumb wrestling matches are no fun though unless someone runs in with a chair…
