Foxy Lady

I'm in trial this week so my posts will be kinda short - I hope you all will forgive me!!

The other day, I stopped by my sister Erin's house real quick to pick something up. As I was leaving - like halfway in my car - my niece Savannah stopped me and said "Catchy, can I ask you a question I've always wanted to know?" I said sure and then she scrunched up her face in a really confused look and said "How come you're not married?" Erin let out a groan of mortification, dropped into the fetal position, and began sucking her thumb. I answered Savannah by saying "I don't know! Don't you think I should be??" She said yes, much to her mother's relief. And mine. Then I told her that I needed to have a boyfriend first and that if she met anyone she thought might be good for me to let me know.

I'm not proud of asking my 6 year-old niece to pimp for me. It was a moment of weakness.

Quit judging me.

But her question got me thinking. Why AM I not married? It just doesn't make sense - I have a history of great hair, make a mean Baked Ziti, can do Hip Hop abs with the best of 'em, and love buying electronics. What man wouldn't love a girl who would bless his purchase of electronics?? Oh, and don't forget about my sex appeal. I mean, who wouldn't want to wake up next to THIS for the rest of his life?

Seriously . . . why has no one snatched me up?

I'm as puzzled as you are.

Obviously efforts to have grown-ups look for eligible men haven't paid off, why not ask the little ones? They'll be more focused and less wrapped up in their own happily-ever-afters. The only person who has tried to help me, is my sister. The only problem is she meets these wonderful single men on planes, and other places that I am not.

Wait till she starts walking up to total strangers asking them to marry her Catchy. You too will drop into the fetal position and start sucking your thumb. I think that will pretty much seal the deal for you.
