The other night, on his way home from work and per the request of his ever loving wife, my husband stopped to pick up a bottle of wine. While he was there, perusing the shelves, a man walked up behind him and said something like, "Yes, yes. You will be perfect." If you know Jim, he of course agreed with the man immediately before even knowing what he was perfect for. But he was curious, so he turned around and asked, "Excuse me?" The man introduced himself as a wine rep for the store and told Jim that he would like to take a few photos of him holding a bottle of and drinking some Bulgarian wine. Jim, of course, asked why and the man told him that the photos would be on "some advertisements". Jim asked where these advertisements would be seen and the man told him, "Only in Bulgaria. I would like you to be the face of Bulgarian wine." And, well, Jim let him take the photos. So now he, my proud Irish American husband, is apparently the face of Bulgarian wine. This story will never stop making me laugh and, if I ever find myself in Bulgaria, I truly hope to see his face on all of the billboards.
Bonus: We totally got a free bottle of Bulgarian wine and I can assure you, it is as delicious as it's spokesman.

And because I love sharing outtake photos and because Ben's "WTH are you doing?" face is priceless in this one:
