Fun things to do: finding an old picture album from a second hand store in the morning, still loaded with other people’s memories, making up stories for the photos over a glass of wine later. A multi-table, day long pinball tournament. Engaging strangers in conversation over drinks and slowly let it slip out that we're spies as we get tipsy. Weekend breakfast picnics.
I’m active with my dog; I've raced homing pigeons and have a falconry license. Not that I’m one of those renaissance fair costume people, I just like learning new oddball things. I can dork out to pretty much anyone’s strange interests as long as the people you’re doing it with are fun.
I have a lasagna recipe given to me by a little old Italian lady who I helped with yard-work one day when I was in college on my way to class. She spoke no English, but the next day she was waiting for me with a rake on my way to class. That went on all summer, her yard looked amazing. She passed away in the fall and her daughter said she wanted me to have the recipe. It's pretty phenomenal and takes a full day to make.
Unfortunately, I know nothing about kids but am willing to learn if you cut me some slack while I’m figuring it out. I’m pretty sure I’m not supposed to give them fake ID as a birthday present, and I know they’re supposed to win at stuff. Other than that I’m lost but interested.
I'm fairly open minded. One critical element is sense of humor. I'd like to find a woman who can make me laugh too. Do you know any good jokes? Send one along, you can't go wrong opening with a joke.
Must like, or at least not mind, animals. I have a kind of organic behavioral training method for my dog; the uneducated might mistake this for spoiling him. I believe that from his standpoint, the greatest concern is that you have the ability to provide treats (I will make treats available for your first meeting).
