    I want Stephen Colbert's baby.

    .well, figuratively speaking. I would at least like a discussion with him about it..just to be in the same room with this man. I need a moment..this is not a hot flash. This is a crush. Talk amongst yourselves..

    Some friends went on a vacation to a resort.

    It poured down heavily for 13 days. But when it rained in the morning, the afternoon was beautiful. And when it rained in the afternoon, the day was followed by clear morning. Altogether there were 11 very nice mornings and 12 very nice afternoons. How many days did their...

    For years, I tried to fit in with people

    who were *not* intelligent, and whose idea of wit was fart jokes. Why? Because there were so many of them. But finally, I couldn't stand it any longer. Being quiet so people wouldn't think I was weird....nope. So when I was in my late 20s, I just stopped doing it. I didn't act...

    I enjoy people who are quick-witted

    and intelligent. I don't think they are interchangeable terms. I have known some very intelligent people who just seem to be so dull at stimulating conversation. To me, the most interesting people are those with a sharp wit and some depth behind that, as well.

    I admire men with balanced IQ

    and EQ. Men who won't easily get upset and most of all, men with kind and compassionate hearts. They are not so many but they're a treasure to keep. ❤️

    I like the stimulation of a sharp intellect.

    I enjoy sitting down to dinner with someone who has a level of conversation I can appreciate and enjoy. One that can read between the lines and such! Ts quite a delight!

    It takes nothing to be good looking

    but it takes a lot for people to have wit and intelligence. I'm not just some pretty face who only looks at what's on the outside I look for what's on the inside. It's what matters the most. Everyone ages and looks fade.
