Life Lesson

Life Lesson



Bridget McNeil was telling me yesterday on my walk home from work about the days "Oprah" episode. She said she will never view life the same. I wondered what topic could have shifted Bridget's psyche so dramatically (but first I wondered why Bridget was watching "Oprah" in the first place). It turns out Oprah was doing a show on the new bestseller "He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys." I hadn't yet heard about this book, but was all too familiar with the "Sex & The City" episode where Berger uses this tagline as an answer to a request for advice from Miranda. I quickly got Les on the phone to see if she had heard of it. Given her career at the Soap Opera, she was able to catch the same program (now I'm twice dumbstruck that I actually consider people best friends who view "Oprah". Who knew?) She informed me that I could catch the program again on the local 55 later that evening. I detoured on my way home to Borders to see what all the fuss was about. I couldn't possibly imagine asking an employee for help finding such a thing... at first. I was told the book was on back order and watched as a 70 year old woman behind me in line asked for the same thing (lady, time to put up the gloves, match over!) Turns out this whole time I've been a "tier 4" and wasn't even concerned (this would be the definition of "fuck buddy" according to the book or 'bible' as some may tout). I wanted to read some reviews before I went ahead and wasted my money on a book telling me that a guy didn't like me (come with the answer of how to change this and I might put a penny in your pocket).

And while I was searching the web for articles, I ran across an old friend I once had admired from afar a few years ago. Please, please tell me what is this? And is he single? Turns out I may not need the book after all!
