Pete, a.k.a. Tygra of the ThunderCats
Tygra of the ThunderCats
Pete of the Hoogestraats
I've told Pete several times that at certain moments, his hair is reminiscent of something one of the ThunderCats would sport. It seems especially ThunderCats-ish when he first gets up in the morning, or after a long day of working and being dirty, when it's sculpted into a wing'ed 'do. This photo of Pete (he's the cat in the second image) is the best photo I could find with him displaying a somewhat Tygra-esque style, complete with side wings and intense volume, although here it is rather tame looking. I'm not sure why his hair achieved this ThunderCats look on this particular day. I think it was just really long and unstyled, so it simply molded itself into an aerodynamic shape.
Pete finds my observations very amusing, and he seems to enjoy it when his hair takes on these attributes. He spent the entire ride into work yesterday morning singing the ThunderCats theme song, asking questions about the characters, imitating the villains' voices, and watching the cartoons on his iPhone. A bit intense for me at 5:45 a.m., but I'm used to my husband's ways, and this is a pretty typical car ride for us. It's lots of fun most mornings, and that goofy side of him is part of the reason why I love him so much, even though he DOES tend to look like a ThunderCat at times....
