Quintessential Dalai Dan
In the spirit of gratitude, brought on by the many emotional things that have occurred recently, I decided to take a moment and tell Dalai Dan what I loved about him the most:
His naturally centered emotional state
His positive outlook
His loyalty to our family
His deep love for our children
I could go on…he is truly a remarkable person. How many men could deal with a wife like me that airs every thought on a international platform? And not only deals with it, loves me more for it?
Seriously, friends, I am lucky.
As the one-sided conversation came to an end, and he was quietly listening to the story of his greatness, I paused and asked him,
“So, what would you say is the part of me that you appreciate the most?”
He thought for a moment (hating to be put on the spot to express his feelings. I didn’t say he was perfect) and then said,
“You will always make me something to eat. You make dinner and make me smoothies…I like not having to worry about food.”
So, there you have it. The Dalai Lina distilled down to her basic function in this family: food management.
The bottom line, ladies, is when it comes to men, don’t underestimate the power of their stomach! They are still boys wanting to be taken care of.
