So did the worm dissection in 7th grade.
There is a good chance I will beat you at any given competition not involving ball sports; but if you should return the favor, I will find you irresistibly attractive.
The season I won the state championship mile race in high school made for a better accolade; the season I missed the state championship mile race due to injury sustained in the course of basket ball mascot duty, well, that made for a better story.
Other than dressing up as a giant, red bird, other personas included Pinocchio and a bare-chested Polynesian boy singing a French duet in South Pacific.
But don’t ask me to tell you what the heck the French lyrics meant.
And don’t ask me to navigate the roads without a GPS
(actually, you probably shouldn’t ask me to navigate the roads WITH a GPS either)
But do ask me about my character and loyalty: I’ll tell you that I’m a die-hard Detroit Lions fan—‘nuff said.
And do ask me about my bookshelf: The Aeneid, next to the Book of Common Prayer, next to Fifty Shades of Gray (don’t worry, two truths and a lie! I mean, who would have the Aeneid on their bookshelf, right?)
So, I can be a bit sarcastic, but I’m not a cynic
An aesthete rather than just an intellectual
An athlete, but not a jock
A singer who doesn’t know any of the words
A dancer who doesn’t know any of the steps
A Christian who does his best to live faithfully, but who is in need of more grace and mercy than he realizes.
Somewhere I have an unfinished poem called Homo Imago Dei in Virtute
Somewhere I also have a key to my safe that I hid in such a super secretive location, that I have no idea where it is.
Somewhere there is a babe-a-licious sweetheart of a lady with a pinch of sass (or perhaps several pinches), who is part goof, part geek, part gorgeous (actually, very gorgeous!), who knows how to push my buttons, but who moved onto that 6’ tall guy’s profile before she even made it to the line about my mother never letting us win at board games.
But he’s a good catch: he knows how to work hard but play harder, he likes SEC football, he’s laid back, and he knows how to have a good time.
