Weird Science

If I had to create the perfect guy, he would undoubtedly be of the metrosexual orientation. Criticize him as the abominable construct of a marketing culture gone horribly, horribly out of control, but if he can order a good wine, appreciate the Reidel stemware into which it is poured, and compliment me on my lovely new Miu Mius, then I say we relax those stem cell laws so the marketers can clone us a good little army of Spice Boys. And then maybe, just maybe, we'll achieve a critical mass of males in downtown wearing leather jackets instead of fleece pullovers.

Oh hell, a girl can dream, can't she?

Part of me says hooray and part of me wants to hurl.

You can never have enough hats, gloves,
and shoes.

Yet there needs to be a balance. For instance, he can't be prettier than me. And there is an endearing quality to owning expert knowledge in certain categories such as grooming and fashion. Do I want my husband to tell me which shoes he thinks goes better with my outfit? Sure. Do I want him coaching me on the benefits of Kiehl's vs. Clinique? Not so much.
