>As I'm editing the proofs for Off the Beaten (Subway) Track (now also sold at MTV's online store!), I discovered that the publisher set aside a page for a dedication in addition to the acknowledgments that I already submitted. I want to dedicate the book to Husband. What do you think of the following options:

1. To Husband. There's no one like you in the world.

or

2. To Husband, my favorite unusual attraction.

I think two is clever given that the book is about unusual attractions, but I fear that it could come across as sleazy, weird, or creepy. He sometimes is easily embarrassed, although after being with me for 13 years, his threshold has risen dramatically. The first one thus seems safer, but I hate playing it safe. At the same time, I don't want to do anything that will make him uncomfortable.

I'm not asking Husband which he prefers because I want it to be a surprise. (He never reads CUSS, so I'm not worried about him discovering my plans.) What do you think?
