Remember the Friends episode in which Ross finally narrows down his list of five celebrities that he could sleep with without Rachel getting mad? He whittles it down by taking Isabella Rossellini off and then runs into her at the coffee shop. Rachel tells him to go for it anyway, and sits back to watch.
My husband saw this picture of me with Troy Polamalu and said, "I suppose you're going to add him to your list." It actually hadn't crossed my mind since it was really just a wax dummy. Then I re-considered. He is a good looking guy, and he does have great hair. But no. I'm too much of a Bengals fan to cross that line.
Besides, my list isn't quite as rigid as Ross'. In fact, my husband and I change our lists almost daily, depending on what TV show or movie we're watching. We don't ever actually write the names down, and I don't think we've held ourselves to five celebrities. Let's put it this way: our lists aren't laminated. They're not even written down, and if they were, they'd be in pencil and we'd always have an eraser ready.
Some of the stars who would make my list: Jason Ritter, Zac Efron, Kevin Bacon, Ryan Reynolds, and Robert Pattinson.
My husband's list would include: Mila Kunis, Marcia Cross, and Sophia Vergara.
My son's list, interestingly enough, includes only one name: Emma Stone. I found that very intriguing.
But again, our "lists" are not exactly lists. More like droolfests and daydreams during movies. We're not foolish enough to get stuck in an awkward situation like Ross did if a parade of stars walked into our favorite coffee shop. We'd just tell them they're on our lists and they'd just have to trust us.
