When I was in my twenties, and everyone was single, I always said I wanted a husband who would play golf while I shopped and then watch football with me after I cooked for him. I expected those guys to be a dime a dozen. Too many years later, either they're hard to find, or I'm looking in all the wrong places. (Maybe they don't hang out a Beauty Bars or Wine-Tastings??)
I'm a contradiction. I'm a very girly-girl who can name for you the UK walk-ons from the Billy Gillispie experience. I can be ready to go out in thirty minutes, but I'm a climate-controlled creature. My idea of outdoorsy is that I like to have drinks on patios. Or beaches. Beaches are outdoors, right? I can happily kick back at Big Al's Beeritaville or whip up a meal in the kitchen, and the next day I'll want the skirt steak from Seviche.
In my spare time I'm involved with a few local volunteer organizations, which allows me to give back to the community and also to spend time with friends. Don't take that as too saintly. Sometimes the volunteering involves sneaking hors d'oeuvres and champagne while "helping" with a silent auction. Sometimes It's a little more substantial. And, yes, I googled the spelling of hors d'oeuvres. I also love the track, tailgates, wine-tastings, and shopping. Put me in the Commonwealth Stadium Blue Lot on a nice day listening to a band with friends, and I'm one happy girl.
II've always said I wanted a dozen children, but I'm not twenty anymore. Children aren't a deal-breaker either way. My life experiences have taught me I have a great ability to love other people's children.
Who do I want to find? My best friend. Making a list is useless--I've made them many times, and the best people always break the mold.
