A day in the life of Mr. Ken

Posted on September 3, 2014


I have shared with you what my typical day is like, What is your perfect day? Now I thought I would share what my dear husband’s day is like.

Mr. Ken goes for a walk
6:00 AM — Wake up and go for a walk.

Now dear Mr. Ken is not really a morning person, so this was quite a surprise to see him up and about so early. He is quite the fashion plate, with his white ankle sox, old man shorts and hat. Note the cool purple t-shirt, a souvenir from our recent WordCamp Boston event.

Mr. Ken and oatmeal
7:30 am — Eat a healthy breakfast of oatmeal and yogurt.

Even though donuts are Mr. Ken’s favorite food, he is very proud of the fact that he eats oatmeal for breakfast.

Mr. Ken and his twin

8:30 am — Phone call with his twin brother.

Even though they are identical twins, Mr. Ken says he does not have any sort of twin ESP with his twin. Weren’t they just the cutest kids? Not even his mother can remember which twin is which in this picture.

9:30 am — Do Tai Chi exercises.

Mr. Ken did NOT want me taking a picture of him doing Tai Chi. I can totally understand that since I have threatened him with grave bodily harm if he ever even just brought a camera into my salon while I was exercising.

mr. ken as geek
Rest of morning — Spend time on computer.

Now dear Mr. Ken is a full-fledged geek, so of course he will spend lots of time on the computer. I’m not quite sure exactly what he does, but I suspect he spends his time looking at other computers and other techie stuff.

12:00 noon – Time for lunch!

Mr. Ken’s new thing is twinkie bombs. Well, technically they are generic twinkies, but I like to call them twinkie bombs. I tried reading the ingredient list to him in the hopes that he would be so put off by all the artificial ingredients that he wouldn’t eat them anymore, but no such luck. I wanted to have a picture of him eating this concoction, but he ate all of the twinkie bombs before I had a chance to take a picture.


Ken with new car

It’s time to wash the car, a daily activity. Mr. Ken sure loves his car!

Mr. Ken sleeping


After such a busy day, Mr. Ken is ready for sleep! He tends to fall asleep on the sofa around 8 pm.

I would love to know what your typical day is like.
