My Good Ol' Boy

My Hubs is without a doubt, the smartest, most tenacious person I know.  Whereas I'm easily distracted and don't suffer the least bit of angst at failing to solve a problem, he's the opposite.  He NEVER gives up.  If he goes to bed thinking about a problem, more often than not, the solution will awaken him before dawn.

Where I read fiction to relax, he delves into highly technical articles for kicks.  This man solves differential equations in his head.   Ask him about thermodynamics or fluid dynamics.  He'll tell you more than you ever wanted to know.

But, there is one thing he does that totally contradicts his intelligence....

Something that drives.  Me.  Crazy.

Does he channel surf?  Sure.  But, that's no biggee.  The problem is that no matter how fast he flips, if he catches a glimpse of one particular show, he ALWAYS stops.  No sometimes about it.  ALWAYS.  Surely with all those smarts it's a documentary or program on the science or history channel, right?

Nope.  My brainiac husband stops at the....Dukes of Hazard.  The.  Dukes. Of. Fucking. Hazard.

Just'a good ol' boys
Never meanin' no harm.

The opening lines of the theme song call to him like the Sirens' song.  Snaring his attention, causing his thumb to freeze over the remote.  Everything comes to a halt.  It's the damnedest thing I've ever seen.  As he watches, he snickers and laughs like a five-year-old boy.

Blows.  My.  Mind.

If I'm being totally honest, I'll admit that I'd be less disturbed if I walked in on him watching clown porn than Bo and Luke battling Boss Hogg for the umpteenth time. 

My theory is that Hubs' love of this moronic show is simply a release.  A time when he's able to give all of his brain cells a rest.  No deep plot to follow.  No complicated dialog to consider.  A reminder of the carefree days of childhood.

Back when he was single with no crazy wife to blog about him!

I guess you have to laugh!


  1. LOVE IT!! Yes.....we are a Dukes of Hazzard Family too. In fact, Bo Duke (yes John Snyder) called me on my 39 Birthday and I even had a Duke of Hazzard Cake. 3 yrs ago one of my friends (who is friends with John) arranged the call!! I was sooooo excited that I talked to THE REAL BO DUKE! I will show your John the video the next time ya'll are here. Also, we have the complete Dukes series on DVD so now John will think we are really cool and he will be oh so happy that his bff found such a sweet loving soul like myself to marry (the famous General Lee horn is now sounding off as a sign of congratulations that Brian married ME!) dun nun nunt nunt nunt nunt nunt nuuuuuuunt nunt

    1. Wow. You are crazier than I thought! And I'd already thought about it a lot.... :)

  2. Oh, those Dukes of Hazard. Gotta love him!

  3. Oh hell. Even this queer loves The Dukes of Hazzard. I can't tell you how many times I fantasized about being in the middle of a Duke boys sandwich. Spread that Duke mayonnaise on me boys. It's a party! And who didn't love Roscoe P Coltrane and his little buddy "Flash",

    1. This may be just the comment I need to break him from watching!

  4. That is great!!! I have a friend who had to stop at the Dukes museum thingy in Gatlinburg and take pictures with all the cars...even the little mechanical/ride one that's outside the building. She was like a little kid inside looking at all the pictures and memorabilia. Blows. My. Mind!!!
