Dear Good Intentions

Dear 'Good Intentions',

You're such a sweetheart. Thanks for being in my life! I just love the way you always seem so positive and full of hope and possibility. Your benevolent spirit is inspiring and pleasant to be around.

Since I love you so much, I'm not sure how to bring this up (it's a little awkward really). You may think it's none of my business (and if you didn't live inside me it probably wouldn't be), but I need to talk to you about that guy you're dating - 'Aw Who Cares'. What is it about him that you're attracted to? Frankly, you've had a whole string of guys just like him. Remember 'Whatever?', 'I was just kidding', and 'Maybe Tomorrow'? I do. They were jerks! And whenever any of you get together things around here get dicey. You're just not yourself when they're around. When two of you start dancing, I just can't seem to get anything done and follow through just doesn't happen like we need it to.

I know you hate it when I try to set you up, so I'm not going to try for any blind dates or anything like that. I'm having a party next week and I want you to come. I'm inviting some really great guys. You may have heard me talk about them? There's my friend from back home - 'Git er Done' and he said he'd bring along 'I'd Be Much Obliged'. There are a few guys from work who are coming - 'Commitment', 'Determination', and 'Accomplishment'. (Determination is super cute!) 'Task Master' and 'Goal Setter' are coming, but... yeah... well... I'm not impressed and I doubt you will be either. 'Gung Ho' is just plain creepy, but there are a few others you might be interested in. Just give it a try. They're all great dancers and they're looking for an angel like you to balance them out.

Please come?

Love you,

Seeking Balance
(formerly 'All or Nothing')

PS - Sorry, but 'Aw Who Cares' is NOT invited.

    A party? You are inviting the Chicago 7 (formerly 8), I hope. I can still name some, but, alas, no longer all.

    Could you GET any more adorable??!!????

    Surprise of surprises, I know a BUNCH of guys from both crowds. . ."I must admit, "I'll Start on Monday" and his twin brother, "I'll Start Tomorrow" captured my heart for quite some time. What a pair!

    I'm not known to sleep around and I do so LOVE to flirt. However, I can see that it is time to pursue a committed relationship. Can I come to your party too? (Shhhh. ..don't tell Henry-:)

    Love you oodles!
