"Mike is REALLY funny. Sometimes at the expense of others, it's true, but he's gentle about it and he can laugh at himself, too.
And he takes tremendous care of his friends, whether that's a big hug or a kick in the butt. He has a great capacity for loving people who are honest, thoughtful, and easy-going. He's all those things. And he's been in love, which I think is important. Mike's the kind of guy who learns from the past without dwelling on it.
Back when Mike and I were roommates, my favorite times with Mike were lazy afternoons (because on weekends, that's when he gets up). He's also good at a bar for a long chat and a few lagers. He's SO MUCH FUN. My poor disappointed Mom...lucky you."
