SPT Challenge Feb 17
SPT Challenge for February 17:
Take a self-portrait about "the first thing that attracted me to you ......"
I met Blaine when I was 18 years old. (Almost 19, but hey, who's counting?) He was an older, wiser, more mature, 21 year old college student; ROTC member. So what attracted me to him the most? Was it his good looks? Charm? Winning smile? His love for deep, philosophical conversations? His interest in the world around him? His care for others? His sense of duty and honor? His integrity? His determination to put himself (successfully) through college? His self-discipline and love for the military lifestyle? Wonderful interpersonal skills???????
Hell, no! It was his awesome shoulders and amazing biceps and pecs!!!
(Hey, I'm just being honest here --- just LOOK at these broad shoulders --- YUM! And you should have seen him without a shirt on!)
His muscular legs, honed from playing years of baseball, crouched in the catcher's position, was a close second.
Lest you think I am completely shallow and vapid, let me assure you that beyond the physical, I *did* appreciate the finer things he was able to bring to my life ..... like the fact he was legal, and could buy us beer on the weekends.
Good to know I had my priorities straight.
