I'm a cat gentleman. It's like a cat lady, but less sad--more distinguished.
If 1980's Michael J. Fox and Nietzsche had a kid, I would get along famously with that guy. We'd sip bourbon into the wee hours and play backgammon, debate literature, trade bad-movie wisecracks and repartee, hold forth on John Cassavettes or the merits of a Reese's "Big Cup", have probing, revelatory life-talks, and be doubles partners in tennis.
I grew up on a horse farm...It was odd. (Note: this is not a euphemism for me being sexually abused by horses. It's complicated.)
I'm more a person's person than a people person. To be a regular practitioner of irony and levity is important; but more so the occasional the ability to stop on dime and really say something.
I like to tell a good yarn; and I've endured certain absurd lengths knowing secretly they could provide material. Anecdotes and refreshing, irreverent points of view make me happy.
