Fox & Friends co-anchor Clayton Morris and Brite Girl founder Sara Batterson Morris seemed to be singing from the same hymn book this morning again. Clayton on his show and Sara in her blog, discussed the very same subject today, i.e., married persons using the “we” or “me” as personal pronouns and the implications thereof. Coincidence?
Reader, after watching Fox & Friends and considering whether to write about co-host Alisyn Camerota’s horrid housecoat habit, the author noticed Carpe Diem visitors interest in co-anchor Clayton Morris’ marital status. Remembering that FNC contributor Karl Rove had kidded Clayton about his inordinate interest in pursuing guest Amber Lee Ettinger (the Obama girl) and that a ring-less Clayton had jested about his employing the singular during a segment on happier couples using the plural “we,” the author decided to examine the matter further. When he did, he then discovered that Clayton and Sara were opining on identical topics today.
For those Carpe Diem readers who may have forgotten who Sara is, Clayton introduced F&FW fans to his wife with a pic of the shark-snaring bikini beauty on New Smyrna Beach, FL, on August 10, 2008. Later, in March of 2009, he showed off his Orlando lovely again on a Gary Vaynerchuk wine-tasting vid. Apparently, Clayton married Sara Batterson on May 20, 2006, at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Orlando, FL.
As to Clayton’s questionable connunbial state, Clayton has seemingly eschewed wearing his wedding band since October of 2009. From the author’s perspective, Clayton’s marital status is generally irrelevant unless he himself alludes to it. Since he did today and readers seemed quite intrigued, the author looked at Sara’s Facebook and Brite Girl sites for a few clues. In her personal info, Sara states, “Right now, I am taking a new path in my life. It is crazy when you think you are on one path and then life, or someone in your life, throws you a curveball…” Obviously, Sara’s statement indicated a major life change.
Seeking an even clearer indication, the author checked out Sara’s Brite Girl blog. To my utter surprise, today’s post (dated “Saturday, January 30, 2010 At 9:48AM’) was entitled “Madly in Love with Me Day.” It’s topic? The creation of a woman’s movement of self-love by Christine Arylo, the author of Choosing Me Before We, and her celebration of the day before Valentine’s as a time to recognize the need for each woman and girl to “know and honor what her heart and soul desire, never settling for less,” including relationships.
Is it “Me” or “we” for Clayton and Sara? Regardless, the two seemed to be in tandem today. Intentionally or not.
