The post to end all posts. AKA HUBS' POST!

Well ladies, do I have a special treat for YOU today!  Pretty much ever since I started blogging, I have been begging Hubs to do a post.  I think the guy's hilarious, and while his grammar might be atrocious, he's actually a pretty darn good writer!  Wouldn't it be so great if he could just take over my blogging duties for one day and charm the socks off of my blog readers?!?  Why, yes!  Yes it would!

Unfortunately, Hubs has high standards.  He said he doesn't post on such little, insignificant blogs like mine, he will only write for the high and mighty blogs. 
"Come on, Hubs!  Write a post for me!" I would beg. 
"Not until you're famous, Bon Bon."  He would reply. 
"Famous?!?  You're crazy!  What exactly does that even mean?" 
And then the sweet, innocent Hubs made the mistake of his lifetime, "Like 1000 followers or something."
My ears perked, "A thousand followers?  You got it!"

I hit the big 1-0-0-0 last week.  And that meant that my adoring Hubs had to stay true to his word.  I harrassed him until finally he realized I wasn't going to let him back out of this one.  I would get my blog post or die trying, dang it!

During lunch, I got an unexpected text from Hubs, "Check your email" he commanded.  I checked.  And there, waiting in my inbox, was the post.
The post from Hubs.
According to him, "the post to end all posts."

And thus it is, girlies, that with excitement and tremor in my bones, I introduce to you my favorite guest poster of all time, HUBS!!!

(Disclaimer:  Although I was sorely tempted, I did not edit any of Hubs' entry- what you see is exactly what the man wrote.  How it is that his bad grammar got together with my English teacher mind we may never fully understand.)




HUBS= “A man that keeps his head about him, while all others are doing the same.” –hubs’ twitter bio


In celebration of my wife hitting 1000 followers, I am making my first ever world premier post. Many of you have wondered, “who is this mysterious hubs?” “Is this guy for real?” “Acting?” “Is that jaw line really that chiseled?” “why did Bon choose him..” And my answer to all of you is, YES.

Allow me to go into more detail. However, if you are looking for proper grammar or some sort of ritualistic blogging language and writing, you won’t find it. But you will find beautiful run on sentences, a few typos, but also a devilish charm and wit that you won’t find anywhere else.

Going into this post I was hesitant, nervous, maybe even a little sweaty. I perform in front of audiences a lot and I have faced the worst of critics and have had opposition thrown at me from all directions but I’m starting to believe that the blogging world is made up from a pack of wolves. That’s right I said it! Wolves! I have read the debates, the ruthless comments and somehow my wife seems to attract the angriest of women sitting behind their computer screens while drinking their diet cokes and ignoring their crying little ones in the backroom all the while finding the time to write terrible things to innocent sweet Bon. (Yes I know I exaggerate.) But I’m a man of PASSION! That is one of the major repercussions of being an actor, you learn to play all sorts of emotion and you wear those emotions on your sleeve. Poetic?
Now I feel bad for my earlier comment. Not all of you are wolves. This is coming from a concerned husband who hates it when strangers pick on his wife. I don’t know why I started speaking in third person, is that what bloggers do? Maybe I’m becoming a blogger. To escape this tangent let me move on. Acting!

Indeed I am a theater major. And to answer the question “what are you gonna do with that?” (I have been asked this question by friends, family, enemies, the parents of my high school prom date, and I finally have my answer.) NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!

Obviously I’m joking. I’m not crazy. The truth is I would always lie and say, “well I’m thinking about Grad school and then maybe teaching, finding something reliable.” Because let’s face it, our culture loves the world reliable. I’m going for the opposite. I plan on heading out to LA next summer with a few of my fellow actors and there I will pursue the dream. The dream consists of performing Improv and Sketch comedy and auditioning for every opportunity that comes my way. Ultimately I would love to land a reoccurring role on a comedic sitcom and then write for television and teach on the side.

To prepare myself for the dream I’m a theater major at UVU with an emphasis in performance. UVU is great and it’s growing and it pays me to go to school, plus I can attempt to grow my beard. I’m required to audition for every play which keeps me busy but most of my time is dedicated to a sketch comedy group called “laughing matters”. Yes it sounds like an 80s sitcom. This is a group that 3 of my friends and I started. Think Saturday Night Live. We perform once a month at comedy sportz in Provo and actually Have a show Oct 8th at 8:00.  Come join us!

I realize that I won’t be able to answer all of the questions out there. And I would like to remain a man of mystery. But yes I am known for having a chiseled jaw line. I could go into more detail about my breathtaking body but talking like that would make 50 shades of Grey look like a children’s story. But seriously.

To close up this monstrosity of a blog post, my wife is awesome. I know that word has lost most of its meaning in today’s time, but I consider Bon as cool as a firework show, or a natural disaster, or even lagoon frightmares. (these are the other events I would also refer to as awesome.) So follow her, read her posts, but be nice to her. She tries to seem tough, but she is in fact sensitive. Hopefully some of your questions have been answered, if not, don’t message personally because that would be inappropriate. However, you can still have your secret crushes on me. This is Hubs signing off.

Signing off is a thing in blogging right?

  2. bahahahha! This is good stuff! I didn't think the grammar was half-bad, and he is indeed, a charmer with his words. As a new reader, I'm really interested in all this pack o' wolves attacking Bon, bit? Looks like I have some catching up to do. Keep up the candid! -C

  20. Haha, oh man! It was kinda hard to know when he was joking or serious (so leaves me with a few questions still), but it is nice to know a lil bit more about him. So are you two for reals going to move to LA so he can "strike it big" or was he joking about that part? Also he mentioned his school pays him, I have never heard of that, how does that work?
