I bet a lot of you thought that I just randomly came up with the nicknames "Superman" (for hubby) and "Lois Lane II" (for me). That I'm a bit obsessed with Superman or something. Well...I am. But Superman is my Superhubby, and I thought I'd explain to you why. =)
First off, he saves me on a regular basis. I'm an accident waiting to happen. If there's a .001 percent chance that something will happen, it'll happen to me. Take last night, for example. Superman made me this incredible meal (broiled salmon with crabcake stuffing), and we were putting a little lemon on it for extra flavor. Well, I was squeezing my lemon ON THE FISH and somehow a little bit of the lemon near the skin broke -- squirting a RIDICULOUS amount of lemon directly into my eye. Seriously, when I make lemonade, I NEVER get that much lemon out.
So as soon as I started screaming and crying, Superman calmly led me down the hallway to the bathroom and continued to say, "You have to take your contact out. We've got to get those contacts out." I think he was repeating it because he was not sure if I heard him over my screams. I managed to pull the contact out and then rinsed my eye with water. Had he not been there to lead me to the bathroom, I would probably have just collapsed on the floor and cried.
But the other reason why he's Superman is because of our wedding. We had planned this for some time and had not told too many people of our "surprise." Right after the pastor said, "You may kiss the bride," Superman...well, maybe it's just best if I show you.
As soon as the pastor spoke, the Superman theme began playing, and my husband pulled his tux open and revealed the Superman shirt underneath. Then he kissed me, and we walked down the aisle together as Mr. and Mrs. Superman (Well, the pastor said our real names, but you get what I'm saying.).
I STILL have random people come up to me and say, "Hey, your husband did the Superman thing at the wedding, right?" Yep. That's me. ;)
And that, along with his ability to fly and stop speeding trains, is why he's Superman.
