Alright, I was going to post something different here to this, but it can wait, hopefully end up being more entertaining than a cynical piece about Royal Ascot. Inspiration for this, firmly credited to my friend, Teri Cross Chetwood, btw (pretty sure its not her real name!)
On Facebook today, she posted this (I’m assuming language isnt a concern here?)
I f’ing swear to God, if one more Facebook guy I’ve never laid eyes on asks me to marry him, I’m opening a mail order bride service on here. I don’t know you. I’m not marrying you. And I’m not setting you up with any of my friends. That’s how I manage to keep my friends. By not pimping them out to total strangers!
But yes, it happens, mainly for me, young men from the Indian sub continent, looking for an easy passage to England, who see marrying a local as the best way to do it. Me, I see through them in about 30 seconds, and they get blocked pretty quickly.
Lets face it, if I’m having anyone contact me about love, and romance, he (or she)’s either going to be in the UK, or possibly in the US, most likely about my age, but not in India, and 30 years younger than me! Besides which, even if I was looking for a man to wine and dine me, he’s going to be able to do it, and not just beg me for money to get to England. Seriously, I’m not looking, but as I’ve been told, ‘that person’ might just walk into my life, and who knows where that might lead?
But as I replied
Who knows, I might get to Hollywood next year, find the ‘William Powell’ of my dreams, and we can live a happy married life, as he, and Jean should have been able to. But the words, pigs fly, do come to mind on that front!
Or even of course, he might decide to date ‘Jean’ in Kansas City, in September, where she was born! No, he doesnt have to look like Powell, that goes without saying, just be as sweet as Powell seems to have been to her, judging by most things I’ve read about him. He’d need to be brave, taking on a woman with 15 years of solo living behind her, but I guess I could change, even without my mind being controlled lol!
He might even read this, here in the UK for all I know! But in all likelihood, I wont find him, or him find me, or even exist, far more likely! But lets face it, ‘Harlow’ meeting ‘Powell’ in Hollywood would have to be the ultimate irony, and sweet story.
Oh, the video, something I suspect I’m unlikely to hear, but you can never tell…
