My kids have told me I look like Arn Anderson. For those who don’t know, he’s a former wrestler with WCW and maybe even some WWE if I recall correctly. I wasn’t so sure about taking this as a compliment because, well, see for yourself:
Hey, there are worse public figures for your kids to think you resemble, even some worse wrestlers. I mean, what if they said I look like King Kong Bundy? Or how about when I was a kid and friends (and even their parents) said I looked like Bam Bam Bigelow:
So yeah, it could be worse. I can live with furry, thick Arn Anderson.
But then it dawned on me that my little girls don’t know anything about Arn Anderson. Not the real Arn Anderson, anyway. All they know is the Arn Anderson action figure lying around the house (my dad contribution to their girly toys, including Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard, and Barry Windham to complete the Four Horsemen). And now we’re talkin’!
Now there’s the super tough muscle-bound hombre rockin’ the six pack abs I really resemble 😉 That’s the guy my kids say I look like? Booyeah.
But I had to ask another question, didn’t I? I couldn’t just leave it alone. I said, “Why do you guys think I look like Arn Anderson?”
“Because,” my sweet little girls told me, “he’s going bald, too.”
Well, it’s still better than King Kong Bundy.
