Gender Role Reversal Caption - Welcome Home

This post is coming a little early (not quite Christmas Day, yet), but I probably won't have time tomorrow.  With this one, I was really, really happy with how the picture itself turned out, and the caption is a very fun concept on so many levels. 

First, there's the role reversal of a man (if we can even call him that) sitting at home, waiting on his soldier wife to come back.  Then there's the competing concepts of love and obsession.  How close are they, really?  When does a person cross over from one to the other?  Does the difference even matter?  I've always liked that theme (and I've written about it on multiple occasions here and elsewhere). 

Anyway, merry Christmas to all of you.  I hope you all are able to spend it with someone you love (be it family or a significant other). 


  1. Wonderful caption, it really is a very sweet story. Merry Christmas!

  2. Nikki, this might be the most ultimate Xmas story I ever heard of. Most fantastic! Thank you!
