On Dating A Comedian

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.

For example.

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."


  1. And this, this goes into a DIFFERENT novel....tee hee...

  2. Oh thank god, I thought my boyfriend and I were the only ones that acted like complete weirdos in the privacy of our home. That’s so adorable, it gives me the warm fuzzies. :)

    Ok...I'm glad I'm not the only one out there that does random things like that.

    You made me laugh but Ish almost had me on the floor.

    I love these little glimpses into your life. Thanks!

  4. Maybe we're ALL weirdos in the privacy of our own homes...Now that we have a child, our weirdness has been modified a bit to be all-inclusive...

    Like dancing around to Wiggles songs, and making up our own songs, and "zerberting" each other's bellies...Maybe it's not all that different from before we had a child...Just different songs =p

  5. ............oh to be a fly on that wall...........

    Also, I loved your Grand Central story - the wistfulness of the road not taken. (I have two seedy stories of proposals I refused, but your story should be a movie with Natalie Portman and, oh, George Clooney, where I see mine as vehicles for Rachel Dratch, Nathan Lane and David Hyde-Pierce.)

  7. 3carnations:
    ain't that the truth!

  8. love it! lol!!! keep a guy that can make you laugh!

  9. is it time for the birthday stories yet? noe?

    how bout now?

    your IFFs are pacing the floor in anticipation dammit!

  10. Thank god I am not the only person who will randomly turn to her SO and flash while yelling BOOBIES!!! And here I thought I was just strange.

    Although I have to admit that while DH loves the random boobie flash, I have never gotten a response as hilarious as Ish's!

  11. That was hilarious.

    Dating a performer is not easy.

    Here's some advice my friend (also a comic)
    Kendra and I gave a girl who was dating a DJ:


    - John Powers
