We love Kurt. We truly do… he’s a cheerful soul, always cracking a joke, doing a silly walk through the office (his catwalk model impression is our fave) or singing a catchy tune! He really brightens up our days…and just because we love him so much, and also because it’s his birthday today, we thought we’d dedicate this little blog post to him!
As you probably know, Kurt is Lucy’s husband, and they’re the wonderful duo behind Frugi. Lucy has always marvelled at how self assured Kurt is, especially when it comes to his “dashing good looks”. The rest of us think it’s nice to see someone so confident, but obviously we can’t quite resist teasing him a little bit…or quite a lot!
So…when we recently went on a bit of a hunt for Frugi Crusaders, we asked all the wannabe crusaders various questions which included “how handsome do you think Kurt is?” – Here are some of the answers that had us giggling away while we read through all the applications!
“Obviously Kurt is well off the scale in terms of handsomeness” (well, we couldn’t launch straight into the low scores, could we?! It wouldn’t be fair!)
“…second photo – 2 out of 10, he looks like a mole!” Hee hee…a mole!
“How handsome is Kurt. Hmm, well I’m sure his mother thinks he’s the most gorgeous, handsome, amazing person around.”
“to avoid offending well go for a bland 8 not insulting but not too high to give him airs” (probably wise, we wouldn’t want his head getting too big!)
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!!! How handsome does he think he is?” Hmm, he thinks he’s very handsome indeed!
“Accessibly rugged: 6 “
“Well on a good day he’s a handsome bit of rough! I’d give him 8, but on a bad day hummm maybe down to 4, sorry Kurt!”
“I’m loving that salt and pepper hair! Go Kurt!”
“Not sure Kurt is my cup of tea to be honest.”
“No offense Kurt.. but the name doesn’t give you justice… you are more handsome that I had imagined. I think I should give you a well deserved 8, I am quite fond of graying hair and well that checkered shirt!!!!”
And we even had a poem which we all liked:
“Kurt, Kurt, I love your shirt
Even though you are sometimes grumpy
and as you age, things get a bit lumpy (sorry…!!!)
you are still a pretty good looking chap,
don’t ever hide your silver hair under a cap
I’d give you nine out of ten (- you’d have only got four if you were called Ben)”
“On the Kurt front, he put up the tent for our wedding in Tehidy’s bluebell wood, and I must admit I had second thoughts as to whether I was doing the right thing!”
But this one’s our all time fave…
“well, no offense Kurt but your not my type, you actually look a little bit like my dad, so on my scale of one to ten, I would have to give you a 2.”
So…when the final results came in he got a nice average score of 8 which ain’t half bad! Happy Birthday Kurt, you handsome chap!
