Blogdad is back at it.
I received an email from him last nite regarding a potential new boy toy for me. Here it is (with some minor edits to delete identifying details):
SUBJECT: Potential s-i-l (I can't make this stuff up)
I have identified a candidate for my beautiful daughter. The Italian Stallion. (Trust me. If you knew his real name, you would agree with this choice.) He will be 31 in January. He is very close with his family... he has one married sister and two nephews. He goes to mass weekly. He works out daily and sells pharma. He ended a very short engagement last spring. She cheated on him. Approx 5' 11", good build, really big dark eyes. He owns a home. He is interested in calling you and setting something up. Can I give him your phone number?
RE: Potential s-i-l
Potential s-i-l? No pressure there. LOL.
Yes, you can give him my number. As long as you donʼt tell him about the blog and/or get pissed if I write about him.
Is it wrong that I now immediately think of what potential blog stories I might get out of a fix-up? (INNER MONOLOGUE: Yes, Always a Bridesmaid. That is wrong.)
Anyhow, I then proceeded to forward the email to my sisters because, well, we're sisters and I knew they would totally appreciate what blogdad wrote.
Sissy #1's response:
Very funny. I’m pissed he’s never called me a beautiful daughter.
Sissy #2's response:
Is that why he is an S-I-L??? Stallion-In-Law???
Just Do It.
Now I don't know what's funnier. My dad's initial email or my sisters' responses.
Or the fact that I now have a guy in the queue that I'm calling The Italian Stallion.
Ciao, bellas -
