So Lo, the love of my life, comes into the bedroom, sees our new headboard for the very first time, laughs out loud and promptly exclaims: “A Space Invader headboard!!! It’s awesome!”
Really? Space Invaders? Space Invaders?!!!
And then he says: “Now we’ll never have to worry about alien abduction.”
Honestly, down deep inside, I am less than impressed by these comments. Not exactly what I was going for. I feel they make fun of my brilliant/amazing/unique/wonderful work-of-art-headboard. I mean, I know it’s made of metal juice lids which I’ve furiously collected over the past ten years and all… And, yes, okay, a metal juice lid headboard may be a little bit out there. So what was I expecting, eh?
I guess I want him to love it.
The thing is, he’s dead on. It does look like Space Invaders. It looks exactly like frickin’ Space Invaders.
So then I sit back to consider this turn of events. Okay sure. I made a Space Invader headboard for our grownup master bedroom. But so what? My husband, Lo, loved playing Space Invaders when he was a kid. He loooved it! So I’m going to take his COMMENT and turn it into a COM-pli-MENT.
That’s right, I’ve decided to love my Space Invader headboard too.
