Thank you, Mr. Stern

Words I would have sworn would never part my lips, did just that. And here I sit, with happy thoughts of love and bliss, all thanks to this man. Howard Stern. Yes, the radio guy. Don’t judge me yet.

PG (Phil Guy, my husband) is a fan of Howard Stern. Don’t judge PG yet. While he doesn’t support the vulgar Stern show stuff (stuff that I would surely turn my nose up to), PG swears that Howard Stern is a fantastic interviewer. Years ago, when Howard Stern went off of regular radio and switched to satellite radio, PG approached me about getting the set up for Sirius Radio in his car . . . so he could listen to Howard Stern. “You’ve got to be kidding me?” I think, was my first response, “I listen to NPR. Seriously? Stern?” But after realizing that this man of mine really doesn’t ask for that much out of life, and recognizing that he has a long commute to and from work (and this is one thing that would really make his commute a little bit more pleasant), I agreed. So, he has spent the past few years enjoying Howard and his show, both back and forth to work.

Often I’ll receive a phone call from PG during said commute with something like, “Honey, you’ll never believe it. Howard is interviewing [insert interesting person name here] and it’s fantastic!” PG will go on to share some bit or piece from the interview with me, and I have to admit, what PG tells me is always interesting.

This morning, I received another one of those calls from PG. “Honey, I’m listening to the most fantastic interview on Howard right now,” he said. This time, he caught me off guard, though. “He’s interviewing (some comedian who I can’t remember) and he (the comedian who I can’t remember) started talking about his life and how he is, for the first time in his life, in a committed relationship with someone,” PG said, “and honey, I just want to tell you how much I love you.”


And that wasn’t all.

For a brief moment, it’s as if words in my own mind drifted out and flew 35 miles away into PG’s mind, where he spoke them all back to me. Words like . . . Blessed. Love. Happy. Family. Committed. Happy. Time. Love. Adore.

I know that my husband loves me, and he does tell me time and time again. But this morning, thanks to Howard Stern, my husband told me just how much our life, our home, our relationship, our years, our togetherness, our time, and our family means to him.

And I was speechless. . . and that doesn’t happen very often.

God Bless Howard Stern.

Ladies . . . get your husband satellite radio. You’ll be so happy you did.


  1. Oh, it's so nice when out of nowhere the hubs do something sweet and unexpected. Happy sighs...

  2. Wow, yes, I'll support Howard Stern if that's what even just one of us gets out of our husbands. Actually mine is pretty good in that department, but it makes it extra special when it's so unexpected! Happy day (:

  3. How nice is that, nothing like hearing words like that, even if you know it to be true, its wonderful to hear it! Now I do think Howard Stern can be a nasty little boy, I think he has a good heart when you look under the crazy. Howard makes people think, I like that.

  4. Ahhh.. PG is a good egg! Perhaps I need to give the egyptian some Howard Stern time.. b/c too often I think he forgets. ;-)

  5. Wow, so Howard Stern is reconnecting spouses and spreading the love?!?! Never would I have imagined typing those words...

  6. My heart just got all gooey like a roasted marshmellow. All I need now is a graham cracker and some chocolate. I'm having a sugar rush.

  7. I'm glad to hear something good came from NPR radio because to me it's all contention and every one talking at the same time, nobody listens to anyone, they all talk over each other.

    My husband listens to talk radio and I always turn it off when I'm riding in his truck with him.

    I guess if I took the time to actually listen to what they are saying, maybe I'd catch the stuff your hubby heard!

  8. We've always said that PG is a good guy, and yes, you will keep him.

  9. awww. this was so sweet. thanks for sharing. hubby sends me at least 4 texts during the day to say he loves me or misses me. i'm ashamed to say it, but days that i'm busy, it really annoys the heck out of me. and when i don't reply right away he calls to find out why. i know, i should be grateful . . .
    by the way, sent you some extra luv today in the form of a bloggie award. check it out when you get a chance!

  10. Oh I wish I could! Hawaii doesn't have it :( But you're lucky that you have a male that can admit such things!

  11. Yeah, I have to admit, I never would have guessed H. Stern would inspire such feelings!

  12. How cute! Oooh I also want you to know that I given you and award!


    Have a Great Day!


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a little note! Your words mean so much to me!
