I was having a little heart-to-heart with Dr. Mom the other day. The topic of discussion: love.
She suggested I make a list of everything I would look for in a potential life partner. Like, literally make a list.
And just for fun, we’ll call this “life partner” a husband. While divorce sucks and all, I would like to get married again one day. I think. Don’t hold me to that, kay?
You know, my mom is not the first person to suggest The List to me. That psychic I saw last year told me the exact same thing.
And both of them told me to be really specific.
I mean, it’s just a list and if the sky is going to be the limit, I should put everything in there, right?
I’ve been thinking a lot about this list I’m supposed to be making and I thought it might be kind of fun to share some of it with you.
I haven’t actually started it or anything, so I guess this would be the first entry of sorts.
I read this article today and said to myself, “Now that’s the kind of person I should be with.”
Oh man, I can already tell this little project is going to reveal some really strange things about me.
Meet Dale Irby:
Dale is a retired teacher who wore the same outfit for 40 years of yearbook photos.
He told the Dallas Morning News, “I was so embarrassed when I got the school pictures back that second year and realised I had worn the very same thing as the first year.”
Irby’s wife, Cathy, dared him to repeat the outfit for a third year. In the spirit of one-upmanship Irby continued the joke for a further five years, after which he thought, “Why stop?”
