Johnny Boy!

The sweetest lil' ol' rock star in the whole world has a new album out, with a free video sample. Sigh. Such a cutie. He's gone all bluesy and falsetto, which is not entirely Pretty Lady's style, but at this point she is uncritically Signed Up for anything this boy's muse inflicts on him.

Pretty Lady has never been the sort to get crushes on rock stars. She hung out around too many of them in her college days, and discovered them to be uniformly self-absorbed and inarticulate. She would roll around on the floor at their gigs, and bum the occasional Camel from one, over a cup of Columbian in the Cactus, but that was about the extent of it.

And now in these limbo years of quasi-maturity, what she feels about John Mayer is mostly that she wishes passionately to be able to pat him on the head. She firmly believes that he is Not a Jerk. He's a sweetie. She wouldn't want to date him, not being a Demi Moore sort, but sometimes it makes her sad that she will probably never have a son like that.

Really?

What is it? The beat? The rhythm? The words? The repetition? The camera angles?

Tell me, what makes a guy like that spin you into a state of er... musical bliss?

By God Darlin', no woman should have to feel sad about that. I'm here for you if you want to try making one. I just want to see you happy.

Yes, indeed, PL, there are those of us who would very much like to see you breed soon, although maybe some of us aren't wishing for that for *quite* as perverted reasons as others ;) I'm just always on the lookout for someone to force my daughter into an arranged marriage with, someday.

I reject the notion of perversion. This is service for the good of Wesern Civilization. I think service is important.

PL, I must agree that the world would be vastly improved with a living heir to your splendor, in addition to your various artistic contributions.

Precisely!

Bobert, you are male, and straight. You will never be able to understand.

All right fellas! Just hit the tip jar, and as soon as it reaches the level where I can afford decent pre-natal care, eighteen years' rent and a full complement of homeschooling supplies, I'll hit the bars and get myself knocked up. Anything to please!

LOL! Great answer, PL, and wise.

Hit them in the wallet - literally makes them put their money where their mouth is..

Mind you, being male my mind works in much the same way.
But I see a lot of the opposite views after 25 yrs of friendship with a lady who is much like you in outlook and thinking.

So....if I literally read what you wrote...

"Understanding" only comes if your female and lesbian?

Could your response be considered as sexist and sexless at the same time?
