My husband loves baseball. Tiger baseball, to be specific. Since he grew up in Michigan near Detroit, that's reason enough for his allegiance. Also his father is a big fan. My father was not a big fan, I didn't grow up in Michigan, and I find baseball...

A. really hot with those guys in tight knickers. I mean, er, because they play outdoors in warm places.

B. really boring. Truly the most exciting thing they do is the 7th inning stretch.

C. a ton of fun. Who doesn't like baseball park food? It's craptastic, especially when you're chomping down on a chili dog and some guy lets fly with a stream of tobacco.

D. a good excuse to go to Florida in March.

ballpark-chili-dogs

Answer: D though B is pretty close. That's right, every year we go down to watch the Tigers play in spring training down in Lakeland, Florida. Well, my husband watches and I go because I love my husband.

Here's what I really do while he's enjoying the game.

A. Try to hide that I'm reading a book on my iPhone.

B. Chat with the nearest female about ANYTHING.

C. Cheer at inappropriate times. Usually when something happens beyond bad pitch, bad pitch, good pitch, swing, miss.

D. Fantasize about something exciting happening. Sometimes I start with plotting a baseball love story. Other times I go straight for alien invasion that obliterates the ballpark.

E. Enjoy the sun.

Answer: All of the above! Yes, I always have a book going on my phone and I can talk to anybody--not just the women--about anything. That's the gift of being an extrovert. I cheer when anything unusual happens. I vividly recalling clapping enthusiastically at a pop fly that was easily caught by the bad guys. My husband has rarely been more embarrassed than at that moment. And given the many, many ways I do embarrassing things, that's saying something.

So this year, my plan is to settle back with fattening food and soak up the rays. Pretty soon, I'll start day dreaming about something fun. Tentative plot: a hot baseball player and I are going to expose that the opposing team is made up of mesmerizing aliens who are slowly dumbing the world into unconsciousness so they can eat us. The good news? We'll defeat them after a few exciting bouts of hot sexy mishaps!

The really good news is that I may not have to endure a ballpark this year. My in-laws will be joining us, so I think it'll be the men at the game while the women...

A. Mani/pedi. There's nothing like gabbing in a nail salon.

B. Read on the beach.

C. Spa day! Hello facial!

D. SHOP! (Need I say more?)

mani-pedi

Answer: All of the above! Or...one of the above, I just don't know which. My mother-in-law is really relaxed. We've done all of those things at one time or another. It's really a whatever works kind of thing. Personally, I'm hoping for beach time though there isn't a beach in Lakeland. By the pool works just fine.

And finally, guess what book I'm hoping you all are grabbing to read on your spring break? My alter-ego Kathy Lyons has a new book out this month. Learn more about THE MAKEOVER MISTAKE here.

Now it's your turn. And what do you do to please your husband even though it might not be your cup of tea? (It might even bore you into elaborate alien fantasies.)

About THE MAKEOVER MISTAKE

In Vegas, nothing is what it seems...

After losing a bet, successful publisher Michael Chang is "pretending" to play the piano in a Vegas lounge in order to spy on his less-than-trustworthy employee. His espionage is quickly derailed after meeting Thea Danelle, an editor who's been wronged by Michael's company. She's smart and unpredictable…and clearly hiding a naughty side that tempts Michael to distraction.

Thea has gone from frumpy librarian to the young, wild thing she used to be--all thanks to the promise of sensuous delight in the piano player's eyes. And frankly, after losing yet another author to the competition, Thea is ready to forget her professional problems and explore those sexy promises thoroughly. With Michael, she can finally be herself...until the moment Thea learns who he really is.

Re: Jade Lee | What I Do Instead of Watching Baseball

Being born and raised in Michigan myself, I know how devoted
the Tigers fans really are, even though I'm not one myself.
I used to watch them on TV, many times alongside my Dad,
which brings back memories, but where I live in the State
now, I'm unable to get the Tigers on my TV, since I live to
close to Canada. I'm only able to receive Canadian
programming, which most of the time is a bummer. Anyway, to
please my Husband, once in a while I'll watch a movie at
home with him that he really wants me to see, because he's a
big movie watcher, while I'm not. That's about the only
thing I can think of. We both have our own hobbies, and
after over 32 years of bliss, we do our own things while
sitting in the same room, and it works for us. I'm looking
forward to reading Kathy's book, and I also Congratulate her
and wish her the best with her latest book!!

Peggy--as I'm going on 32 years with my husband, I know what you mean
about separate hobbies and doing different things in the same room. It's
nice when you can parallel play, isn't it? Hope you like Kathy's new book.
And thanks for sharing!
