Meet The Missus


Dear readers, meet my wife: Maria Lindroos, art director. She may not be the star of my firmament (it's the Richard Russo I'm reading, sorry), but I definitely see her a great deal more than I see my other significant other. Sometimes I see her day and night, and though these are never truly happy times (I'm old fashioned and prefer my working hours to be 9 to 5), they would be a great deal worse if it wasn't for my wife. So let me tell you a little bit about her:
  • My wife talks to herself.
  • My wife likes sauce bearnaise on her pizza.
  • My wife likes her children to be really warm. To the extent of making them wear longjohns in June.
  • My wife lives on an island and takes a boat to the office everyday.
  • My wife likes gardening.
  • My wife tends to blabber when nervous (but who doesn't).
  • My wife is a very talented illustrator.
  • My wife likes to tell me what she's doing ("I'm doing the layers campaign now.")
  • My wife likes to know what I'm doing. (I am too doing the layers campaign right now.)
  • My wife was once described like this: "She's so wonderful! She'll open her mouth and you have absolutely no idea what will come out!"
  • My wife has excellent upper arms.
  • My wife makes me laugh out loud at least once a day.
  • My wife can get really crabby and then you seriously don't want to get in her way.
  • My wife puts up with me.
I am really grateful for this. Here's looking at you, Marylove!

If Leo had had a wife like mine there would never have been a second heart attack. He'd be living off an island, growing his beard, producing commercials, 'cause that's what Mary's husband does. Not a bad life. And can I add that my original wifes, Anna and Emilia and Jessica, also deserves posts of praise and that I will get there in due time? See, I'm a bigamist! So many things you didn't know about me.

Hi, thank you for visiting my blog. Yes, I'm really grateful that I can enjoy the swap from abroad. Wishing some other day, I would be your partner. I'd like to come to your blog from time to time. I feel Sweden is getting a little bit close to me. Glad to "meet" you.
