What Would Higgins Do?

Kira is in sixth grade right now and a lot of girls in her class are totally in love with Justin Bieber and New Kids on the Block (no? not anymore?) but not Kira.  She thinks those girls are sick.  She would rather go to summer school than be caught screaming for the attention of a teenage boy (after all, her brother is a teenage boy.  yuck!)

That's not to say she can't be star struck.  She spends a lot of time thinking of her two favorite tv stars.

Adrian Monk
Jonathan Quayle Higgins
She wonders what they would do in certain situations, what they would think of each other, what they would each in turn do, for example, in response to her letting a gigantic fart that makes her family say, "KIRA!  Gross!" (For the record she thinks Monk would cover his face with his jacket and leave the room, and she thinks Higgins would say, "Oh My GOD!")

She is pretty sure that Higgins is the star of Magnum P.I. and can't understand why anyone would make or watch an episode that he isn't in very much.  She loves his hair, his stories, his hobbies, and how high he wears his pants.  Tom Selleck in his prime, half naked, tanned and gorgeous?  Who cares.  Where's Higgins?



  1. Heh.. reminds me of my own pre-adolescent crushes.

    The object of my 12-year-old lust? Scott Bakula.

  2. That Kira! She's certainly not a follower! Kudos to that girl!

  3. I've just told Boris that when we go to MN for a visit, we are totally stopping and doing dinner or whatever with you and your family ONLY to meet Kira. I read him your post about why you have so much gray hair and he said "She sounds like Anna"..and I said "I know, and that is why we must get the two of them together".

    For the record, I LOVE it when Higgins says "Oh My GOD!"...I quote him all the time...tell Kira that we've got every Magnum episode on our computer and we watch him all the time...


I would love your comments.
