That’s right. James Bond.
As a writer I’ve learned some stories write themselves. This one unfolded for me (and my husband) last evening while watching NBC’s Saturday Night Live (SNL). Okay, the headline I’ve chosen and the fact I’ve mentioned my husband might confuse. Hang on.
My secret (not anymore) desire to make out with Daniel Craig is fulfilled. Kinda. On screen. Again, kinda. My husband is secure in my love for him. I can tell you of my celebrity crushes. Honestly, Daniel Craig is not at the top of my list (sorry, Daniel). But he is on the list! But I think we can all agree he looks damn good in a suit. And he has a great tailor. In fact, I said just that when he took the SNL stage last evening. Truth is, he looks great in another suit, a swimming suit, too. I’d bet a birthday suit too. I digress.
Cut to mid-way through the episode when a skit called “The Loving Couple,” begins. It is known in my home as the “Rajean” skit. Here, take a look.
Seconds into the skit my husband and I began laughing so hard I think we missed much of the acting. Then when certain personality traits came forward with the character “Rajean,” portrayed hilariously by SNL actor, Fred Armisen, our laughter became more like a cackle. Daniel Craig is funny too. And in this skit, he’s my boyfriend, named Carl. I’ve never dated a Carl.
He/she loves stimulating conversation, including politics and world events. She loves books, specific cocktails, neck kisses, ear kisses, back massages (by Daniel Craig, um, I mean, her husband). She makes faces when enjoying such treats.
My first date with my husband, not Daniel Craig, included a chocolate dessert. We think it was chocolate mousse or maybe a flourless chocolate cake. He still tells the story of how my eyes rolled back in my head when I took the first bite. For him, it was love at first bite, ur, sight.
The SNL skit mentions Rajean’s love of staying at a party – late – like being the last to leave. This just happened last weekend at my 30th high school reunion. I was in the small group of people to leave the venues each night, LAST, because we didn’t want the party to end.
I love this skit. My new favorite SNL moment and I have many favorite SNL moments.
Come on, Daniel Craig, aka James Bond, said “Isn’t it a beautiful name? Rajean!” I (okay, the actor playing me) got to sit on James Bond’s lap.
And, while I hope I keep my skirt down a bit better than Fred Armisen, we can’t deny he/Rajean looks great in a short skirt. Those legs! bahaha.
Thank you, SNL, for fulfilling many of my desires and for giving me a new favorite toast to use at parties. ‘You make me do things in bed I never thought necessary! To Rajean!’ Wink.
Do you have a favorite SNL skit? Let me know.
