Flattery will get you
Grumpy says it took some getting used to. I watched a legislative secretary make an absolute fool of herself one day, draping herself all over him while he and I were talking. She just walked up and mounted him like he was a lit-up pole. He said for a split second he thought he was gonna die! But I'm a firm believer in throwing a fit doesn't do anything but show a man he has the upper hand.
Guess who we ran into one night when we were out with friends?? Yep!! It was ... Let's call her Donna -- NOT her real name! The look on her face was priceless!! I cannot tell you how many people we've had tell one or the other of us we were never gonna last. And to all y'all doubters all I can do is tip my glass and say "Haha! Suckers!!"
Then you shoulda gave HER one!
Interesting that nobody counts Mexican people as native Americans. I would say that many of them have more "native" blood than a lot of the blue eyed, blond hair natives that live here.I started to say the Native Americans are gonna be upset BUT ...
While I was talking to my HVAC guy yesterday we got to talking about heritage and how in Oklahoma (and probably a LOT of the rest of this country if people were honest) you really cannot tell by looking at somebody what their heritage is.
I am white. So white, in fact, that if I was standing in a snowstorm you'd lose me. You guys who have seen me can vouch for that description. Lol This fella was, by all appearances, 100% African American.
The more we visited the more we found that our family histories were scarily similar. SO similar, in fact, that I'm tempted to take a DNA test and trying to find my great grandparents on both sides, and great great grandparents were.
Right now I know the story that was passed down. That I have Cherokee, Choctaw and Pottawatomie blood. My Cherokee great great grandfather married his African American slave after she became pregnant so she and their child would be able to get Indian benefits. He stayed married to his NA wife also.
It was absolutely astounding how similar our stories were. We were swapping all the info we knew about ourselves because wr honestly believe there is a chance we might actually be related. Lol How wild is THAT??!?!
The older I get the more convinced I am that God has the most warped sense of humor around.
So ... I mean ... It's possible she's as much NA as any of us ... Welcome to Oklahoma!
I told him he ought to have gone with her originally. She was the gal he SWORE he was "just friends" with. SHE obviously did not get the memo. One of the things I love about Grumpy -- he is COMPLETELY oblivious to the profoundly obvious!! (THAT is a double-edged sword, btw ... )
Oh ... And she's not my type.
A survey of more than 2,000 American men has revealed the ideal girlfriends for each US state. But the average answers were blue eyes, natural makeup and minimal jewelry.www.dailymail.co.uk
