Put on your “glad” rags!

February 20, 2008

fashion-bracelet-180.jpgSalutations, Blog Guy – My husband is a gladiator. It’s a living. Us “glad wives” are expected to show up and cheer, but I need accessories. I want edgy stuff that sort of says, “My husband left his trident in your husband.”

Maybe some jewelry, so my hands will look good when I do thumbs-down at the end of a match.  

And a purse, so I have chariot money in case Marcus gets the old mace in the face someday, if you catch my drift. You know, the old lance in the pants? The old dagger in the gagger? I mean, it’s amazing he’s lasted this long.

I’m touched by your wifely concern. Have a look at these pictures from a current fashion show. By the way, I guess you must get sick of people asking Marcus if he’s going to bring the old battle ax to the Colosseum, huh?

I prefer women who to be softy-touchy not spikey-ouchie.
