No one I know has a room in their house that looks anything like this. Everyone asked me when I married Jason, “When are you going to make him get rid of the Coors Light Room”? My response was “I’m not, I think it is cool”. Only due to the fact that we had a baby and needed another bedroom in the house, Jason agreed to move the Coors Light Room out to the new pool house that we recently built. It will be the NEW AND IMPROVED Coors Light Room. This room was wall to wall neon. There was a full sized kegerator in one corner and a big breasted mannequin in the other corner. Every guy I know wishes he could get away with having a room like this.

No….we do not have these in our house – but never say never. Jason showed me this picture and said
“Isn’t that cool? Wouldn’t that be great to walk in somewhere and that be the bathroom? This is usually the pattern he follows when he has purchased something outrageous and then tries to break the news to me. I told him not to get any funny ideas about remodeling our bathrooms.
Late last November when we started to blow this up I could not understand why it was taking so long and then I realized that this thing was HUGE. This thing is 12 feet tall. Look how my husband’s head only comes up to Santa’s belt. His rationaliazation for the purchase of it was “We have the biggest one on the block. I have never seen one this big. I got a great deal on it for $71 at Home Depot”. I could not even get mad at him. It made everyone happy who came to our house.
Here in Southern California, personalized “vanity” license plates are the common thing to have. Every one of our cars has a personalized plate. When deciding what to get my husband for his birthday, I decided on one that would be very appropriate. This plate is on his Chevy conversion van that I call “The Silver Bullet”.
I told him not to buy this when he showed me the picture from craigslist. Jason had already bought it and had it hiding. I was shocked one night when I walked out onto my back patio and found this. The funny thing is that I walked out three times previously and never saw it.
Its eyes glow red and it scares me. It looks like it could pounce down and suck your soul out. I love gargoyles but this one is just too over the top. Our friends are not fond of it either.
I tried to take the high road and accept this beast. I figured when life gives you lemons – make lemonade. One morning when I was taking the pictures of it for the website I got freaked out and ran in the house – kind of like I used to when I was a kid and thought the Boogie Man was after me.
I have asked my crazy husband when he is going to sell this thing and he proudly responds that he isn’t. His classic standard additional remarks are That’s the biggest gargoyle I have ever seen. It will look great at our annual Halloween Party”.
I want it gone.
