I tried to be nice. I had some great thoughts for a post a few weeks back, and then decided not to post them. But since John brought up the subject of his nephew in the comments, I just have to post it. John, just so you know, I'm gonna poke some fun at you here, and that is all that it is - just fun - because your, well, easy, and I've been giving you a hard time for years. Why stop now?
John called me a few weeks ago to discuss some things. During the conversation, he mentioned that he and his wife both thought that their nephew would be perfect for Jesse. My eyebrow went up. I'm always skeptical, but interested - Jesse too. John proceeded to tell me about his nephew. His nephew sounds like a good guy, but I had some silent thoughts as John spoke - some of which were pretty funny, but I kept a straight and silent face. Now I shall reveal:
John said his nephew graduated from University of Texas.
Strike one, but I will try not to hold that against him.
John said that his nephew had been working with his father, but the economy had hurt their business and now his nephew was traveling around. - and Jesse loves to travel.
Yeah, well, who will make the money for all this traveling?
John said that his nephew had dated lots of girls.
Really? Why is that impressive?
His nephew did have one girl friend for a long time, but she "dropped his butt and said that if he was'nt going to treat her any better, she would just find someone who would."
I'm not sure I have to say anything to this one.
He likes to run marathons.
Okay, maybe he has potential.
John sent a few pics of his nephew running in a marathon, and his nephew is pretty cute - even Jesse said so. Chances are that he and Jes would have lots in common, but John's description of him had me and Jes laughing. So John, when you saw Jesse in RR and mentioned your nephew, I'm sure these thoughts were running through her head as well. Is your nephew a smart A$$? 'Cause he would have to be to fit in around here. Send him on over and we will rake him over the coals.
But you never know...
