Set a gorgeous pair of Louboutins in front of a woman, and she’ll set her priorities straight to ensure that she will own those Louboutins. Set a gorgeous man in front of her, and she’ll forget how to speak. Set a gorgeous man in front of her, with an equally gorgeous accent, and she’ll forget herself completely.
Yes, this happens even to the smartest of women. In fact, just the other day a friend and I went out to an event and it ended up being a most hilarious day. The hilarious part occurred afterwards though, when we couldn’t stop talking about the gorgeous man we had just met, and as a result we lost all sense of direction trying to get to our next destination.
At one point my friend said, “We have to stop talking about him, because I’m going to throw up, he’s so cute.” That was the funniest thing I have ever heard. Then every time I’d lose my train of thought, she knew exactly where my mind had wandered.
I’m sure we sound just like any old pair of silly girls, but we are ambitious career women. We know what we want, we do what we want, we make shit happen, and we take care of business. We do not get silly over just anyone or anything.
But still, love makes everyone silly, doesn't it? Not that this particular instance was love, per say, but you know what I mean... I hope. Besides, I don’t believe in love at first sight…unless I’m looking at a pair of shoes.
In any case, I do believe love is life’s muse, and that is why it is so wonderful. We learn our greatest lessons from our greatest heartaches, and we learn our greatest strengths with each new love, whether it is found in friendship, or even a stranger.
Love is silly, but so are we. And that’s why we keep doing it.
BIG LOVE & HUGS
