Imagine you’re flailing in brown muddy water so deep that you can’t touch bottom as the Mekong river torrents past you, pushing you and your capsized kayak inexorably towards even more sinister looking rapids. Of course my relatively newbish level of kayaking skills had landed my Laotian guide and I in this situation and now we were thankful we hadn’t ditched our life jackets to work on our tans. We gasped for breath, involuntarily sucking down mouthfuls of brackish river water, wondering how we would ever manage to right our kayak….
Long story short – somehow we righted the kayak and made it downstream. And I’ll never be tempted to remove my life jacket in rough water again.
Monday through Friday I’m defending the innocent and not so innocent alike from “The Man” – in the form of your local police and county attorneys. Like a medieval knight clad in shining armor, I stride into the court room wielding only pencils, pens, legal pads and whatever arguments I can muster in defense of the despised and downtrodden.
Work isn’t everything though. I usually can’t wait until the end of the day, especially Fridays. Whether it’s getting in a good workout, playing softball or just walking around town or the Konza, I usually like to do something physical after all the thinking at work. The weekends are usually my time to catch up with friends or family, generally over a couple beers, great conversation and, weather permitting, a pool or a BBQ.
I don’t fall for overly women cruising the internet looking for innocent men to take advantage of.
I’m looking for someone incredible. Someone who can take a good-natured joke and dish one out in return. Tasteful sarcasm appreciated. I’m an admirer of self-reliant, strong and intelligent women. A woman who is mature enough to know exactly who she is and what she wants out of life – and open to having a blast in sharing the journey to that destination. Active, athletic, living in the now, doesn’t take herself too seriously. I could spout off all the clich?s about honesty, integrity, etc. – but I’m looking for the kind of woman who values and requires the baseline qualities and virtues of being a standup person in herself and others without needing it spelled out. If you think that might describe you send me a message and let’s chat….
