I went out on the date with Alan, and we were able to have *conversation.* Science fiction, magic, you name it, we talked about it. I love that.
I'm never dating a mundane again.
Of course, when I mentioned this to the One True Gentleman, I could hear him thinking that he was mundane. He's not. He's so not. He may not have the experience, but experience comes from practice, so all he needs to do is practice. I know his potential; I know his abilities; I know what he does now and ....
.... he may not be famous or tossing around the equivalent of ten-ton anvils, but he's my friend, and honestly, he links with me better than anyone else I've ever worked with, and our hands fit together well, and I laugh at his jokes, and he groans at my puns.
Is there anything better than that? If so, I haven't seen it.
