i love mac in the gym

anonymous asked:

honestly if sunny were any other sitcom: mac and dee would have eventually ended up together, and charlies love for the waitress would have been shown as endearing/charming/whatever, and dennis... im not sure where they wouldve gone with dennis, maybe made him a playboy like they did barney on himym. still! the fact that rcg didnt go any of these directions is just one of the many reasons sunny is such a top tier sitcoms

facts!! i just love that sunny just goes out of its way to subvert all the tropes out there… like dennis could’ve easily been a playboy whose behavior got excused over and over again but instead they acknowledge him for being the creep he is. mac could’ve been a gym rat hetero dudebro but instead he’s gay and out and buying valentine’s day gifts for his male best friend. dee could’ve been the token female who acts as the watchful maternal voice of reason but instead she’s hilarious, gross, unapologetic, and totally nonconforming to any kind of societal expectations of femininity. i just… really love sunny and i’m glad a show like this is out there getting made


Pairing : Mac x Reader

Summary : Imagine taking Mac to your high school reunion and bumping into your ex who reminiscences about your relationship which angers Mac.

It was fantastic, for you. While you had hated high school, you wanted to show off your sexy, clever husband to your old classmates. To see the shock on their faces when you told them you were married, made it worth the long drive to get here.

For Mac it was a different experience. Whilst you chatted to some of your high school friends, Mac left to get you a drink and when he returned a man - who was clearly drunk - had his arm over your shoulder while he laughed loudly. This man was your ex-boyfriend who you had left for this exact reason - he was a drunken fool.

Mac and Den get caught in a downpour on their way home to the apartment they live in together.

“Goddamnit, Mac! I don’t know why I still listen to you,” Dennis seethes as the first droplets of water begin to fall, faint pinpricks of cold against his skin. Mac had talked him into walking to Paddy’s for work that morning (“To make up for the fact that gyms don’t exist in North Dakota,” Mac had suggested, despite Dennis insisting that they did). He’s beginning to regret it now, craning his neck only to find an ominously grey sky overhead.

“You didn’t have to,” Mac responds in that annoyingly bright tone of his, not giving a single damn about the water beginning to seep into his stupid slogan tee - what kind of self-respecting middle-aged man wears slogan tees out in public, anyways? “Besides, water is great for resistance training.”

“Only if you’re physically submerged in a body of water, you dumb shit.” Before Dennis can berate Mac any further, a clap of lightning startles him into silence, and the light trickling suddenly becomes a steady downpour. He sighs, his eyes trailing after Mac walking in front of him, half expecting the anger bubbling near his temples to bore into Mac’s skin like a set of laser beams.

“Stop whining, dude. We’re almost home.”

OQ Prompt Party {Day 2}

Prompt #185. OQ adopts a baby… or three.

All they wanted was to be parents.

And, oh, how hard they tried.

He still remembers the moment he first saw her. Every little detail. Exactly.

The curl of her hair (flipped out where it reached her chin), the shade of her lipstick (berry plum) and the color of her dress (light blue with a navy blue floral pattern).

It was supposed to be a simple presentation, one he’d done at least a dozen times before but she’d knocked him off his game. The minute he’d looked into her dark chocolate eyes his heart had skipped a beat.

He’d basically made a fool of himself in front of 25 kindergartners, stuttering over stranger danger tips simply because she’d been there.

Luckily, she’d found his fumbling attractive enough to agree to a date. He’d taken her to a local place, nothing special but the food. Still she liked it.

He never expected a schoolteacher to hold her whiskey so well.

Falling in love with her was the easiest thing he’d ever done. He was head over heels in a matter of hours.

In his heart he’d known that she felt the same. But getting her to admit it? Well, he’d never had a harder job in his life. Or a more rewarding one.

Earning her open heart was the most important thing he’d ever done.

One year after stuttering through stranger danger tips he recited his vows to her. And he didn’t stammer once.

Those first two years were some of the happiest of his life. He loved her, she loved him. They were happy, stable, together.

Children were the next step. The last thing they needed to complete their happy ending.

They’d both wanted it.

They just… hadn’t foreseen the struggle.

“I’m super excited to have you join me on grumpcade.” Danny says with a big smile. He had been dying to get Mac to join in on the grumping he did. And what better way to have him join than playing a game that would get him all types of flustered. It would make for one hell of an episode or two. “And you can’t weasel your way out of this cause I’ve already agreed to go to the gym more than I already have been.” He enjoyed knowing what to promise the other to get what he wanted from him.


Today was Jess’s first day skiing. She and E killed it!

While they were getting their lesson from Ski Instructor Danny (and what a doll he was!), I was fully initiated into That Tree Life. My friends took me down a tree’d black run that was OMGSOSCARY (“Don’t make me cry, guys. Please be gentle. All the lube.”), and we eventually popped into this little clearing with a 2DOLLA license plate, and my Better Off Dead-loving heart leapt. (“Two doooooollars!” + “HE’S SKIING ON ONE SKI!”) Anyway, I am so smitten with the soft snow of the understory, the obstacles, the mini jumps, and the sharp turns. There’s no going back now.

After skiing for 4 hours, I ran home, changed, and went right back out to celebrate The Mormon’s dad’s birthday. Huge salad + mac & cheese + cornbread. Yes, please.

Then more gym (60 minutes of incline walking + 2k row), because lolol, WHY NOT? This week I worked out 10.5 hours (any non-active ski time, like lift rides, was omitted). We’re halfway through my 6 week fitness challenge, and I will be damned if, as team captain, I do not lead by example.

Also: enjoy a ton of photos of me, because I was stupid happy all day, and couldn’t stop smiling even when sitting in my car alone and driving up and down canyons and across valleys.

Life is too good not to smile, man.


“(BLESS THIS DAY!!) 1. Maks meets Meryl’s friends for the first time (sometime during DWTS) and he’s super nervous about meeting them and they have reservations about him based on his whole bad boy rep but in the end it all turns out happy” -Anon

Lalalala, I ran with this again. Ha. Of course. Welp I hope that you enjoy it! It’s been such a good day. Love you! Always- J.
