I’m not, as a rule, inclined to tell the world a whole lot about my private life. Maybe largely because I don’t have a whole lot of “private” stuff going on. And what there is mostly has to do with doctors. Doctors of all sorts. From my teeth to my toes, I have doctors who know a great deal more about me than I do.
But a new male has come into my life, and I need to chat about him.
First the obvious stuff. He’s quite good looking – I think. Not that that is the most important thing I look for, but when it comes with the package, it is a nice bonus. He has wonderfully thick hair – dark over all but with a streak of gold that (almost) any woman would pay a fortune for…it is dramatic without being bold.
And his eyes…those beautiful eyes, have reflected that golden streak. They are dark and – yes – soulful.
I admit I wish he were a bit more athletic looking. Not that that is essential, but it would be nice if he could be a bit more intimidating when we want to take romantic walks by a little stream we have discovered, and we are the only ones there – except for the occasional threatening presence of another couple, either one of whom is bigger and tougher looking than both of us.
But’s get back to accentuating the positive.
My companion is almost intuitive when it comes to my moods. Not that I am given to giant, temperamental tantrums or anything. NO. He picks up o the little things. The paper cut kind of things that happen everyday and go unnoticed by the world. He will take the time to sit quietly with me if I need to cry and rejoice when I need someone to share a wonderful moment.
The big red flag for me is that I see a growing sense of “She’s my girl” in his approach to others. He has begun to resent anyone who gets too close to me, and, since I have many friends of both sexes who are big kissers and huggers, this is becoming awkward.
I guess what I really need to tell you is this: If you are coming to visit, just call ahead will you, and I will put Milo into his crate until you are settled and he has accepted you.
In case you are a breed snob, Milo is a Yorkshire Terrier. Not a Teacup Terrier, but more of a TEAPOT. I love him and he loves me.
