My Boyfriend's Back

My boyfriend's back.

Oh yes he is, and I'm so happy.

Let me tell you about him:

He's humble, even self-deprecating, yet ambitious, with a professional goal in the medical field, even though the odds seem stacked against him.

He has successfully emancipated himself from both his mother and his boring job and often expresses how much he cherishes his independence. He's a maverick.

He can stand up for himself with high-powered CEO types and rub elbows right along with the common folk in factories.

He can sing, even writes his own tunes when the moment is right, so in addition to being focused professionally, he has a spontaneous, artsy side, as well.

His clothing choices reflect his unique personality; he is no slave to fashion trends. His hair is neat and very stylized. I think Clinton Kelly would approve.

He's not very tall, but that doesn't matter to me. I do care about good teeth, and so does he. I'm talking perfect dental hygiene.

He is the friend of those who are marginalized and misunderstood.

And he's kind to animals. {Dreamy sigh.}

Some people might not appreciate my attraction to his soft-spokeness, his gentile mannerisms, but I've had my fill of the Yukon Corneliuses of this world--so, in the words of The Angels (1963) It's Christmastime and, "Hey la, Hey la, My Boyfriend's Back."

Oh Hermey. I've missed you so.

You're crazy. :-) That's why I can't stay away.

This killed me. I'll never look at Hermy the same. Loved it.

I love him too! But you sound a little more committed to him than I am so......enjoy your reunion!

I was sitting in bed watching this last night when I noticed a little girl sitting on the opposite side of the bed. On further inspection...it was just a reflection of me in the mirror. Good to now some things never change.


I am with you....I love the Hermy's of the world.

Poor Jorge doesn't stand a chance.

The Bug said...

LOL - he sure is a keeper! I have a good friend from college who always reminded me of Hermy, not that I ever told HIM. He might not think that's a compliment.

Jewel said...

Linda, you've got competition!

HA HA! I had a friend who was the on-base postmaster when we were stationed in Germany together. She used to say she wanted to finish with the Air Force and become a pharmacist. It always made me think of Hermey.
