Show & Tell: Dynamic Duo

June 17, 2009

in Love, Show & Tell

Here’s Roger and me one our way to a wine tasting this week, courtesy the alumni council of his graduate school.

This occasion is remarkable for two reasons. First, I wore lipstick. I always need Tessa’s help with this because I don’t actually own any lipstick. I’ve never bought lipstick. But somehow, my 8 year old daughter has a stash, and she came up with a not-unflattering color for me.

Secondly, this week marks the 15th anniversary of the day Roger and I first met, although I’d had my eye on him for a few months before that. I suppose that makes me a stalker. And seeing as how I have 3 years on him, I am also a cougar. Yeah, I’m a cougar/stalker. Can you blame me??


See what non-cougar/stalkers are showing and telling at Mel’s Show & Tell.

Wow, exposing the photos! Woohoo you hotties!

And — since I’ve wondered about this ever since I first heard the term — any idea of the derivation of “cougar”??? It’s probably totally obvious, but I’ve been having far too much trouble figuring it out.

What Kristin said. And great photo!


Peeveme April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Hot couple alert!


Martha April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

No I don’t blame you, Cougar/Stalker indeed, [chuckle, chortle]
You both look Absolutely MAH-VellouS!!


Kristin April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Rob is a hottie. No wonder you were after him. But, you look pretty damned good yourself!


IdleMindOfBeth April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

You guys look fabulous!

Tessa did a wonderful job with the lipstick.

And Raaaaaawwwwwwwwrrrrr is right! Your Rob is a hottie! lol


Sunny April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

What a knock-out couple! Sounds like a really fun evening.

I am 4 months older than my DH… does that make me a cougar too?? :)


Sheri April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Nice lipstick selection, Tessa! Did she also try to apply foundation, blush, eye shadow, nail polish, mascara, high-heeled shoes and a matching purse?

You two look FABULOUS!! Absolutely FABULOUS!

Rob is a hottie! So are you! A striking couple indeed!

3 years… Pah, I say!! My sister’s man is just shy of a decade younger. We’ve been working the cougar jokes in the family, let me tell you!!!

You guys look great!


Lavender Luz April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Niobe — an excellent question. When I look at Urban Dictionary, there are definitions but not derivations.

Maybe because of the hunter aspect?


Phoebe April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

You two look great. Happy anniversary!


battynurse April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

You guys look great. Funny about the lip stick. I occasionally buy some but still never use it.


Melissa April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

OOOOOHHHHLALA!!! Tre Tre Fab-u, sistah!


I was going to reiterate the fact your hubster is smokin’ but now that I’m old it’s kinda cougar-like and creepy. sniff sniff.. ;o)


FattyPants April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Happy anniversary. You look great in that photo.


Baby Smiling In Back Seat April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Happy Anniversary! My husband and I have been together just slightly longer than you and Rob.

Our wedding anniversary has usurped our getting-together anniversary as the big one, but I still like to acknowledge the day and celebrate the round number ones. To the extent that we celebrate anything, given that we don’t really “do” traditional romantic holidays.


The Steadfast Warrior April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Oh darlin’ you make me laugh. What a wonderful photo for a lovely celebration. A great looking couple. ;) Congrats on the 15-year milestone.


Lollipop Goldstein April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

First of all, the lipstick is stunning. Second of all, since I have been lucky enough to meet Rob, I can tell everyone that he’s not only attractive, but also warm and funny as well. The cougar got a good catch (prey?), but as well all know, he did as well.


FET Accompli April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Agreed – Rob is cute!


becomingwhole April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

First thing I thought (I saw the photo first) was “what a good looking couple” then “wow, he’s hot!”

you, cougar, you.

rowrl, indeed.


Liv April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

What a couple of hotties the two of you!

Sounds like it was a nice evening. Love that your girl hooked you up with the perfect shade of lipstick. Geez I need to borrow her next time I go to Walgreens!


WiseGuy April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Oh Tessa did a great job with the lipstick!

Am very surprised…you don’t have your own lipstick????? Whoa!

Congrats on the anniversary! You two look really sweet together!


edenland April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Loz, you know I think you are a dead-set spunk …..

and HUBBA HUBBA. I haven’t ever seen a pic of Rob before. Woo HOOO.

Dang he’s HOT.


As you were.



cowboyboot lady April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Great pic!!! Congrats on 15 years!!! He was a he has a sense of humor, has a graduate degree…so he’s smart…and he’s handsome!! Good catch, cougar!


Furrow April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Very well done, Lori! On the lipstick and the prey.


Jamie April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

What a fantastic picture! Kudos to Tessa – she did a fine job with your lipstick.

The stalking had to be done. Totally understandable.


luna April 7, 2010 at 2:41 am
