Recently I added an "About Us" page. I did this because my most popular post, by far, is the "My Secret" post. That post details my history of abuse and it bothers me somewhat that that is what people read and might think defines me. I considered for a short time removing the popular post feature. I decided instead to add the "About Us" page to give a bit of background.
I recently received a lovely anonymous comment on that page asking me to write more about Musicman. The commenter said he seemed "sweet." He is sweet, but in his own words, "it depends who you are." No one really knows Musicman the way I do, he doesn't let people see that side of him.
So, I decided to grant the commenters request and write about Musicman. He is my favorite subject to write about. Musicman is the great love of my life, he is my savior and the center of my world. In my mind, my life began when I met him. He gave me the fairy tale life I always believed I could have.
In many ways Musicman is a polar opposite to me. I think that we give each other balance in this life. He is an over the top pessimist, I am an over the top optimist. He is serious, I am silly. He is stable and steady and rock solid. I sway with the wind and follow every desire. Musicman has lived in the same 5 mile radius his whole life, I have a gypsy soul. His family has deep roots in this area. I stay for him, my home is wherever he is.
My hair is almost totally grey, he has none, despite the fact that he is older then me. Just by a few months, but still, older. I have 8 large colorful tattoos, and planning more, Musicman has none and doesn't want any. I am an extreme extrovert and love people. Musicman is an extreme introvert and does not like people. I love the sun and tan easily, Musicman hates being in the sun and burns and peels. I never wear shoes unless required by law, Musicman never goes barefoot. He wears slippers in the house and watershoes in the pool. Musicman is a meat and potatoes guy, I am a veggie girl. My wardrobe is filled with bright colors, Musicman tends to dress all in black. Polar opposites, yet, it works well for us. Balance is a good thing.
Musicman comes from a large, loving, boisterous, extended family. The kind of family I always longed for, he shared them with me. I will be forever grateful for that. He is the oldest of three boys. When I met him he was living at home and helping his father care for his mom, who was disabled and his two younger brothers.
Musicman has a baby face with the cutest dimples that he passed down to our children. He wears a full beard that covers them, so I am the only one, other than family, that knows that. He is quiet, but when he does talk, people listen. He has a wicked sense of humor and is still capable of cracking me up at any given moment. He has an amazing head for trivia and can appropriately quote movies, tv shows or songs for any situation. He does the voices pretty good too.
Musicman plays the guitar and has a good singing voice, though he doesn't sing loudly. He doesn't like to be the center of attention. Musicman is a car guy and can often be found underneath the hood of a car. Need your car fixed? Call Musicman, everyone does. For that matter, he can fix almost anything.
Musicman is responsible, loyal, hardworking, humble and the best friend anyone could ever ask for. He doesn't befriend just anyone, most of his friends he has had since his childhood days. If you make it into his inner circle you are golden, he will do anything for you.
If you happen to be family, like I am, you get the very best of him. He would sacrifice his own life for family without batting an eye. He always says he just wants me to be happy. He will do anything, within reason, to make me happy. What more could a girl ask for? Nothing! I have everything I need to be happy. I have him, and I always will.
Thank you anonymous, for giving me a reason to brag about my man.
