I Must Be The Only One.
First, I must preface this by saying I have never watched the Olympics swimming. I rarely watch the Olympics as it is and of the sports I do watch, in the summer it’s gymnastics and in the winter it’s ice skating. That’s it.
Because I’m a girl who knows other girls, I often hear people talking about this swimmer guy. Some of you may have heard of him too. His name is Michael Phelps.
Now, as amazing and earth-shatteringly unbelievable as this may sound, I honest to God had NO IDEA what Michael Phelps looked like. Okay, maybe I had seen, like, one picture of him, but that’s it. I told you, I don’t watch swimming. Ever.
That is, until today. This morning, I came in early to work and was skimming through my RSS Feeds. I checked in with a blogger I read, Ashley, who has dedicated her Mondays to shirtless men. This week, she featured the men of swimming including a few choice shots of Mr. Phelps.
And you know what?
I don’t get it.
I don’t see it. I must be the only girl in the WORLD who doesn’t find Michael Phelps all that attractive. I mean, okay, he’s cute and whatever. He’s not ugly by any means. He’s a swimmer, so he has a nice body. That’s a given. But the face? I’m kind of meh on it. I think some of the other boys in that last picture are much better looking than him.
Is it because he’s like a million-time winning Olympic gold medalist? Is he charming? Should I watch an interview with him and then cast my judgment?
Cuz going off of the picture, I gotta say, I’m not getting the Michael Phelps fever.
So there. I’ve said it. I’m not in love with Michael Phelps. I don’t want to have his babies. You can have him. I don’t mind.
(Please, please, for the love of all that is good and holy, do NOT write me hate e-mails or comments. I seriously don’t care. I just thought it would be amusing to see if there is anyone else out there who doesn’t get it either. Thanks.)
