Naughty After Dark Blog Hop

Posted by on February 15, 2012

Hop! Hop! Hop!

 

That’s hot!

I thought in honor of Valentine’s Day and love and getting all hot and bothered we’d discuss what’s hot. Now remember, this isn’t an  X-rated blog so let’s try to show some restraint. My mom could end up reading this and I don’t want to be so embarrassed I can’t go home for Easter.

So, let me start us off in the right direction. Workmen are hot. And that goes for husbands and boyfriends working around the house. But don’t you think it’s hysterical that men don’t believe that when they do things around the house, it’s a turn on? It’s as if they honestly can’t believe that something so simple could really be the answer to all their prayers. Let’s face it, if you’re happy, there’s a much greater chance that he’s going to be happy. And, if you’re not happy, he can bet his life he won’t be either.

Yet, he just can’t accept the fact that doing something as simple as putting the cover plates on the electrical sockets could possibly have the type of impact as buying jewelry. Or that watching him do yard work is like watching a Latin gardener. (At least it is in my house, which is just another reason to love the summer months.)

I hurt my back on New Year’s Day, vacuuming like a lunatic. I’m sure you vacuum in pretty much the same way I do- with complete determination to capture every last dog hair, crumb, or dust bunny in the fastest way possible. When I vacuum, I vacuum the entire house, top to bottom and I use the attachments to get in the nooks and crannies and everywhere else the vacuum won’t fit. I don’t want to spend the whole day on this God-awful task so I plow through like a gladiator heading to war. That damn vacuum is easily has heavy as a gladiator’s shield, thus, I hurt my back.

As much pain as I was in for over three weeks I still enjoyed the fruits of my labor, I mean the solution my husband developed. He now vacuums.

You can be sure that his vacuuming makes me smile. He doesn’t use the attachments and doesn’t do the stairs and doesn’t get behind the fridge or under the cabinets, but he looks damn good vacuuming and I don’t have to push the vacuum.

He could wear ratty gym clothes or a striped prison uniform to get this task done, and I’d be pleased. Typically, I consider the sound of the vacuum to be the most irritating sound on the planet. But now when I hear it rev to life, a grin like no other plasters on my face and I have to remind myself not to run into the other room to watch. Instead, I wait for him to come to me.

Fully-clothed and pushing that vacuum. Shirtless, pushing that vacuum. Maybe, naked, pushing that vacuum. Doesn’t matter to me. The key to this is “pushing that vacuum.”

Okay, maybe it’s not just the “pushing that vacuum” part. I’ll admit – I like to watch him doing pretty much anything. But damn, pushing that vacuum is awfully hot!

    I agree, men doing housework is awesomely sexy. But its even more sexy to see them either cooking or yardwork(shirtless) I know its cliche but a guy either working on car, or chopping wood just makes my heart start pumping :) Thanks for the giveaway!!!

      Hi Shannon. It’s funny we think they’re sexy and they think we’re joking. They never seem to get it! :) .

      Hi Desiree. I love the idea of Vin Disel fixing the sink. Now that’s hot! Jordan

  8. Ciara Knight

    Yes, it is sexy to have your hubster do household chores. :)
    From a person who blew-out two discs completely 2 1/2 years ago, let your husband do more chores. It’s not worth it.

    • jkradmin

      Oh Ciara that’s terrible. I’ll have to agree. That’s a bit too extreme for getting hubby to do chores. I hope you’re back is better, but that you still get the occasional “chore performance.” :) Jordan

  11. Melissa Bourn

    I absolutely agree!!! A man working around the house is sexy. Not only does it make me happy, it also gives me more time to devote to my hubby. He is always eager to get more time with me!!! I love when my hubby washes the cars. They look good, smell good, and he is all worked up for me to take over.
    Thanks for the vaccum story. I am not the only one who loves a working man.

  15. Eva P.

    I was chuckling at your vacuum story, sounds like you both have a good sense of humor and maybe you should find other things for him to do that he will look good in ;)

    • jkradmin

      Hi Eva P. That’s a great name. I had to check twice to be sure you weren’t Eva Prim, who’s known for running off on her own! I guess fortunately and unfortunately we’ve managed to come up with plenty of things for hubby to do. About a month ago we one electrical socket blew. Thankfully, he knows a bit about electrical stuff. But he was up and down, checking plugs everywhere trying to find the culprit which turned out to be a socket somewhere on the first floor. Aggravating, but fun to watch! :) Jordan

  16. Gwen LTP

    I like a man who is sporty! Love the football/hockey men in particular!

    • jkradmin

      Hi Gwen. I agree. The athletic men are hot, and I’m right with you on which ones. I like the more rugged type, too. Jordan
