Able baker, casual, dedicated, earnest, fairly gracious, honest.
Idiosyncratic. Just kinky (enough), loving, manly, never-endingly
optimistic playmate; questioning results sent (by) the universe,
vital wealth (advisor), (e)xciting, young (enough), zany--well, not
truly zany, but can't think of what might describe me that starts
with "z"...maybe you'll think of something.
