Hubby and I were at Target the other day. We were looking for some tissue paper for a Halloween craft project I wanted to do. (Stay tuned, I will post pictures.) On our way to the party aisle, we passed by a display of nutcrackers dressed in Halloween costumes.
Side note: I love nutcrackers. My family growing up had a nutcracker that we would always display in our home for Christmas. We never used it to actually crack nuts but I loved it anyway.
So naturally, we stopped to admire the nutcrackers at Target. And, we saw this one. It's an army officer. I laughed with delight at how cute it was.
Hubby laughed too. But not in delight. It was more like an "oh-my-gosh-what-will-people-think-of-next" kind of laugh. He picked it up and looked at it more closely. And then, the first thing out of his mouth was "he's not in regulation. He has a beard." Something you need to understand about Hubby is that he has a very thick beard. And he's proud of it. We joke about how it only takes him an hour to grow a beard. While he was at basic training, he would shave early in the morning and by lunch time, his drill sergeants would ask him if he shaved that morning. I think he was thinking that he wished he could be like the nutcracker and have his beard in uniform.
