Most of my posts are tongue in cheek. In this particular case, I was trying to enlighten you in a humorous way as to why I would be unlikely to move to the south. You needn't worry; I'm at a level where "HR guys" don't get to choose me.
As far as making Miss Duh miserable, I can assure you I have never even met the lady. I doubt very much I would make her miserable.
I'm not a sleazy pol.
I'm not, nor have I ever been a metrosexual. Or a metro-anything. I don't even wear those silly metrosexual stylie glasses. I do however wear navy blue boxer-briefs. That way I can wash them with all the rest of my navy blues. Lord, I apologize for that one. I'm sure it was TMI.
I'm not a redneck. Don't exactly live in a mobile home. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
I would never tell her "I feel her pain". I can't sympathize. I've never been mugged, nor am I likely to be. I'm not exactly what some would call a "mark".
In the unlikely event that my date were mugged, I would not call 911. I am more in the habit of answering 911 than of calling.
I would have given chase. Given that I run and work out daily, I would bet on me. However that goes back to the unlikelihood of being a mark.
I would not however, have been walking out of a bar in Georgetown. Not unless I was in DC at the request of the president for some reason. Even then, I would probably wait until we had someone other than a sleazy pol in the white house. I know, I may be old and gray by then.
I would not have wimped out after three days of heli-skiing. As rule, I don't go heli-skiing, as I actually enjoy the climb, but I wouldn't ask a lovely lady who might not spend quite as much time in the mountains to try to get 8,000 vertical in a day going both ways. Well actually I might but if she said no thank you, I would say, "Sure, let's just go to a Bed and Breakfast and snuggle all weekend." Actually I lied. I would still go hiking. But I would be nice about dumping her.
And we could have a nice chat about skiing in Europe.
Sir, you wound my honor. I have no interest in being her knight in shining armor, but I would at least try not to make her miserable.
