Time once again for Share Your World!
Melanie gives the questions, I give the answers. Kind of like Jeopardy! in reverse.
Anyway, enough of this folderol…
In your opinion, do May/December romances ever work? Not for long. I was involved in a May/October romance, and it didn’t end well. Well, not for her, anyway; I met Mary and it was love at first sight. I talk about it here.
What physical action or gesture do you find romantic? Mary comes up behind me and wraps her arms around me, or pats me on the shoulders when she’s back there.
What is your idea of a romantic dinner? A romantic lunch. Seriously, we don’t go out in the evenings anymore, and never really have. Since the start of "two weeks to flatten the curve" (which I’ll bet will be "two years to flatten the curve" by the time this is over), Mary goes out and brings lunch home from one of several places, and we sit together and eat.
Is ‘love’ a real ‘thing’ or merely a physical chemical response and brain activity pulling our emotional strings? Yes, it’s a real thing: a physical chemical response and brain activity pulling our emotional strings. Remember my whole "brain vs. mind" thing? I can’t find it now, but that kind of explains it.
See you in the funny papers!
