I have tendencies to be very silly, especially in the privacy of my own home. Sometimes, I act as though I'm about three years old.
These tendencies aren't new, but I have to say -- now that I'm dating a comic, I no longer get the last laugh.
This morning, in my living room, I was sitting on my sofa (vacation day!) and Ish was sitting at my desk.
Rather spontaneously, I lifted up my shirt, grabbed my right breast and yelled, "BOOB!"
But instead of being shocked or even laughing, Ish just sort of grinned at me and, not missing a beat, said, "Calling that a boob would be like calling the Titanic a boat."
"I can just see a miniature Leonardo DiCaprio standing on your nipple," he continued, and outstretched his arms and tilted his head back, "I'M KING OF THE WORLD!"
Then he got a serious look on his face and said, oh-so-earnestly, "Don't let go of the areola, Rose. Whatever you do, don't let go."
