On my Pinterest account, otherwise known as the new way to lose time, I have a board called "beautious boys". I have had a few questions as to why an old bird like me would have pictures of hawt guys on my account along with all the red and white polka dot dishes, dresses and shoes in the word, every darling picture of a donkey I can find, seasonal make ums and my Mexicana roots trivia. Well there are several ways to answer that question.....first I am not dead, nothing like a view of a hotty to make an old gal smile, second; Why not? I have an appreciation for beauty of the male gender and third; GK.
Several weeks ago, one of GK's classmates told her she was hawt. It kinda freaked her out )me too). Then she thought it was pretty cool that someone thought she was pretty. Whoa says I..........let's get this thing in perspective here girlie, girl. There's hot and there's hawt. And then there is Hawt and then there is pretty, they are not necessarily the same thing. And we had a long talk about cat calls, whistles and non respectful jeers and taunts. And after me going to the North Pole for ice when all she was needing was an ice cube from the refrigerator (cuz I tend to go the long way around on an explanation).......she said "who do you think is hawt, Oma?"
I decided I needed to figure that one out and share my findings with her. So I began with who I think is the sexiest man alive ever, Sam Elliott (the voice). If you are under 40, you would recognize his voice on lots of commercials (Chevy) and was the sky pilot in Golden Chariot. Blake Shelton (The Voice), Sean Connery (the only real 007), Tom Selleck (Magnum PI, currently Blue Bloods) Michael Wetherly (DiNozzo on NCIS), Trace Adkins (Badonkadonk) and Mark Harmon (Gibbs), to name a few. Here's a fun one for you. When I showed Sweet Man my list, he wanted to know why I didn't have a picture of him to let the world see his gorgeousness. I soothed his ego by telling him that I was willing to share only some parts of my life with the world. He was mine and I couldn't just share the good stuff like that. He was so tickled, he laughed in a way he hasn't for a long while. I need to tell him more often how beautious he is.
When I told GK the names she was puzzled by some and a little put off by others. How could I think they were hot. Now grated my dears, many of them have some mileage on them but really? To me at my age, some of the others I have on my list are almost too young for me to be comfortable having them on the list (Adam Levine, Jake Owen, etc), just babies, while to GK they are some that are grandpas. Funny thing age perspective.
The first photo below of Mark Harmon is when he was pre ER age. Really young, very handsome and hunky. GK says, hey who's this one, with a smile in which I saw some Hawtness noted. I said, oh that's Mark Harmon. She said who?????? I said, Gibbs from NCIS. And then this pallor of OMG washed over her sweet 11 year old face and she said, as she blushed, Oma, wait!!!! This is way too much to take in......Gibbs was HAWT!!!
