The 40-Year-Old Dumb, White Guy

Well hello there my blogging friends. It is I, Mr. Shife, and I apologize for the lack of posts but I have finally recuperated from my birthday bash. OK that is not true. I do apologize for not blogging lately but it is mostly due to my laziness and not a 40-year-old hangover.
So how are you? I am pretty good. Thank you for asking. Just starting my second week of life in the 40s and so far so good. I had a good time at my party with family and friends, and the lovely Mrs. Shife even managed to surprise me. The photographic evidence is below. So for as long as I can remember I have had a little bit of an infatuation with Elvis. Maybe it was from hearing my Mom play the music in our house or maybe it is just the cult-like status Mr. Presley has obtained since his death. Whatever the case may be, I have been goofing on Elvis. So at the party we are having a good time and all of the sudden out of nowhere comes an Elvis impersonator to serenade me. It was awesome but a little uncomfortable having a grown man dressed up as Elvis sing to me a song like "Why Do Fools Fall in Love?" So check out the photos - which totally capture my awkwardness - and the pictures also make Mrs. Shife laugh because of the titles she gave to the pictures.
The first picture is called "Is Elvis's hand on my butt" and the second one is "Yep, his hand is definitely on my butt." Enjoy and talk to you soon.

Is Elvis's hand on my butt?


Yep, his hand is definitely on my butt.

Crikey, some men have all the luck (wink) ... great pics. Glad you had a brill time at your 40th bash, seems as though the weather kept fine as well. How was cutie boy during the proceedings?

Hey! You're forty! Having anyone's hand on your butt is nothing but a blessing.
And it was ELVIS!
Glad you had a good time, Mr. Shife.

"Yep, his hand is definitely on my butt."

Did he at least kiss you first before feeling you up?

Peggy said...

Oooh. This is almost like that Butler/Aniston thing.
Yep. Looks like Elvis copped a feel. Just saw him at Walmart this a.m.
Glad you're back. The 40's are a snap. Keep your butt tight and Elvis will be back in a decade or so.

Best. Birthday. Evah!

Hmm. I'm not sure how I would react to an Elvis hand on my butt. I suppose it's alright, as long as he's not singing "Suspicious Minds" or "Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear".

Damn it! Why couldn't there be a video for this one???

Mrs. Shife did a good job springing The King on you like that!

Happy 40th!

HAHAHA! Yikes. Looks like you had a great time along with plenty of awkward moments from 'the King'. I hope Baby Shife wasn't watching.

Elvis didn't parachute in did he? I think if he had his hand on your butt he should have sung "Love Me Tender."

Crystal said...

Your wife rocks!

Also, I'm showing these pics to the husband. Proof that Idaho does not ALWAYS have snow!

Elvis was a notorious butt grabber, brother.

tina said...

So, really how are you feeling? did you have that icky exam you mentioned in previous post? :/

Random Chick said...

Dammit! Did I miss the party!!!

Anywhoo, at least you don't look like Elvis, or go around to 40 year-old birthday parties putting your hand on their butts!

Red said...

Happy Mother's Day to Mrs. Shife!

angel, jr. said...

So what was it like having his hand on your butt?

Red said...

"springing The King on you "

That's not a euphemism is it?
