First. My new owner took a chance on me, purchasing a Buy It Now auction on E-bay. She rarely played with me when she was a child, preferring my girlfriend's frilly clothes with bows, feathers, furs, lace, and silk. But she remembered having me, neglected and forlorn. I arrived with my case in Mint Condition.
Now, I know a lot of people rib me about being "dainty". But there is a tremendous difference between having taste, class, and integrity and being "dainty". Sure I'm modest. Yes, I like my robe with a monogram, matching slippers, and towel labeled "his". What macho man doesn't like a little pampering sometime? Huh?
Let's see now. I'm athletic, good looking, enjoy fast cars, guns, and beautiful women. Sounds to me I have more in common with James Bond. I do share the first name of Mr. Connery. But, that's not the only thing. I've been faithful to the one love of my life for over 50 years now. Mr. Connery's marriage is one of the most stable and long lasting in Hollywood ... since 1975.
So this Valentine's Day, be a little of a "pansy". Show some emotion. Buy some flowers. Go out to dinner. Maybe, you'll be more of a man than you think. At least, in your loved one's eyes.
