Not About Shoes Anymore

Now that we women are about to control the world, we can be picky. It is our duty to be picky.  We can’t just worry about shoes anymore, those days are over.

We have a myriad of crucial things to concern ourselves with. First and foremost, the selection of one’s partner cannot be taken lightly.  When choosing a mate, it’s important to know what you want. Equally significant, it’s important to be able to articulate what you want with the right adjectives. I, for one, wanted a man who was not only sensitive but quietly sensitive. My dream mate was to not only be thoughtful, but globally thoughtful. In the looks department, he had to be not just good looking, but damn good looking.  Not just smart but scarily smart. Smashingly funny. Poignantly artistic. Extraordinarily helpful. Swooningly suave. Happily hysterical. Cheerfully charming. Swimmingly submissive.

Once we have the adjectives under control, there’s no stopping us.

    I kinda think your adjectives are OUT of control – but I LOVE them!
