I was chatting with an old friend the other day, and she had some interesting opinions about love.
In her heyday, my friend, who is one of the most interesting and smartest people I have ever met, was a model that jetsetted around the globe with a worn Filofax that was filled with admirers. In other words, she had a penis in every port.
As she approached 40, she married a suburban Minnesotan and moved into his rambler style house that looked like a garage - you know the style - all garage door and driveway with very little house.
When I inquired about her happiness, she replied:
"Well, my husband is too fat, he drinks too much beer, watches sports constantly, and he farts at inappropriate times. He doesn't "get" me, but then again, whoever did? I know he's very common, but I guess he loves me.
" Am I happy? It's not the life that I dreamed for myself, but he loves me - did I say that already."
I had no idea how to respond to her.
I mean, was this her idea of love?
