In Love

Julia-Gulia and I enjoyed a quick road trip to Charleston, South Carolina this weekend. I've been there before but wanted JG to visit at least once before she leaves again for school in January. We were able to enjoy some shopping, the coast, a break from home obligations, and even the cool, windy weather.

Oh, I forgot to tell you one major detail. I met the man of my dreams! He's tall - a must if I continue to wear boots, dark - bronze from the sun, and handsome. He very strong - his muscles are rock hard. He loves to travel - mostly by sea, and is very outdoorsy. He is fond of pets - especially parrots. He is rich and has a great eye for hoop earrings made of gold. Oh, speaking of great eyes, his are blue, though he has bad eyesight. I also have poor eyes so our future children are doomed but I'm fortunate my eyes aren't as bad as his - he usually requires an eye patch.

We just clicked. I can't explain it. Words weren't needed. I could tell by the way he looked at me that we were meant to be.

I found out he owns his own ship so I'm sure I'll document our vacations on this blog in the recent future.


Hey, hands off sista!

I'll bet you like the fact that he doesn't talk too much either.

Em said...

The, uh, man of your dreams there...looks a tad too old for you. Lots of gray in that beard.

Jeremy said...

He's kinda cute...there are all kinds of jokes that I could make about him (some clean and other's could probably use some soap...) but I'll just say that I'll be looking forward to reading of your further adventures with him.

Oh, and I want a nickname. K.

Just so you know! Random trivia factoid: Pirates wore eye-patches so the could see when they went into the hull of the ship. It was dark down there and this way all they had to do was move their eye-patch over and they could see in the dark. The eye-patch was used so one eye was already adjusted to the dark. Just though you would like to know for your new Boyfriend. You should get him a new one for Christmas!

I'm glad you finally found your soul-matey. I hope he is attentive, he seems to have such a plank expression. He looks a little rough around the edges. I wouldn't want to run into him in a dark galley...ARRRGH, these puns will be my ruin.

You went to Charleston? Did you enjoy the smell?

Any cockroaches carry you off? Or did the pirate protect you?

Awesome pirate statue.

I told a friend of mine in England that I'd found the perfect mate for her. He was tall, well build, looked great in a kilt (she was Scottish) and still stood upright despite his head being chopped off so she could expect no backchat from him. (I think this was in Debenhams.)
