I'm married to Toby Keith??

What the frig! Went to the doctors office yesterday and as I was checking out and AB was still in a room getting his physical - there were four gals at the front desk all giggling. I said "what?" Then one of the them blurted out "YOUR HUSBAND LOOKS JUST LIKE TOBY KEITH!!!" Then they all started laughing and giggling again.

OK - first of all, we don't listen to Country Music. Sorry, spare me the Texas hate-mail. We're Californians - I've covered this. We live in Texas, but are solid "rockers".

Second - we know who Toby Keith is, but only because he did the Ford Truck commercials and the general media type stuff.

Third - What the heck? This is the 100th time I've heard this and we couldn't disagree more. We are always amazed when people come up and tell him this. And it happens OFTEN.

They were practically drooling on the patient charts and I said "well, lucky me...I married a Toby Keith look-alike". They giggled more. Good gawd ladies - pull yourself to together, it's not that much of a resemblance. Then one of the nurses said "Poor you...must be rough being married to Toby Keith". Followed by some more absurd giggling.

When AB came out, I shared with him their assessment privately. He laughed, rolled his eyes, and then proceeded to sing "I'm a Ford Truck Man" (oh yes, he DID!) When he came to the counter with me at the very end, he actually smiled NON-STOP. I was like "Hey! This is not a PHOTO SHOOT...good grief!" Meanwhile, said four nurses and office assistants were batting eye-lashes and still giggling.

As we left, I turned around and he was still at the counter...

I yelled "Come on TOBY...for God's sake...let's go!!!"

You be the judge - and don't get me wrong, I think AB is my beautiful inside and out hunk-o-burning love, but come on! Toby Keith look alike??? Not even...(side with me...no resemblance!)

There is a resemblance but not a look alike. I wish I had been there to hear him sing. Too funny!

Love you both!

.....I see absolutely no resemblance between your husband and Toby. To be honest, he looks more like Garth Brooks than he does Toby.
