If you're looking for Brad Pitt, best of luck to you, I ain't it.
It's been said "laughter doeth good like a medicine"'. I'm living proof of the truth in that proverb. While I do laugh at other people, I can also laugh at myself just fine. If your sense of humor needs a tune up, you'll probably have a hard time figuring me out.
I'm not exactly "politically correct". I tend to say what's on my mind, and expect others to do the same. I'm not easily offended and I try really hard not to take life, or myself, too seriously. I find that a copious amount of sarcasm is a great stress relief.
I've been married to my job for the past seven years but have decided I need to slow down a bit and explore this so called life before I explore being dead. I'd like to find someone willing and sometimes crazy enough to go on that exploration with me. Whether it's a walk in the pouring rain or jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, it's always more fun with a partner in crime. (Skydiving is one of those things on my bucket list). I've done a lot of hiking in the mountains in years past and intend to start doing that again this year. Are you adventurous enough for a hike? The view from the top is worth the sore muscles you'll have the next day.
I also want to start going to the gym again on a regular basis and it would be great to have someone to go with. Going to the gym alone is only slightly more fun than getting a root canal with no anesthesia.
I'm a huge fan of music and listen to almost everything but crap. (otherwise known as rap).
I have one daughter who's 23, lives in another state and doesn't call the "old man" nearly enough. I guess that's the way life goes.
Now for three things I DON'T like:
Reality T.V: Whose dumb idea was this? Television in general seems to me like an incredible waste of time, though a good movie now and then is nice, but I don't have time to watch stupid shows about some folks so called life. Get real.
Cold weather: Having grown up in eastern Montana, I know a thing or two about cold weather. What I know most about it these days is that I don't like it. I'm starting to think this whole global warming thing sounds like a good idea. Can we crank up the CO2 emissions a bit? Until then, I'm really looking forward to spending my winters in the Caribbean sometime in the near future.
Mushrooms: Something God could have left out of creation and we'd have all been just fine. To me they are one of the grossest things that people shove in their face. I may discount bungee jump, but I ain't eating no shrooms.
If you want to know anything else, drop me a line and maybe we can have a good conversation over coffee and a bagel, or take a walk on the greenway.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Dinner somewhere nice. (No fast food) Let's skip the movie. It's hard to get to know someone if you can't talk to them and for some reason, people kinda hate it when you talk during the movie. In the spring or summer it would be a hiking trip followed by an excellent home cooked steak and a glass of wine. (There's not many things on my menu options, but I do cook the best steak on the planet)
