A unique valentine's day compliment I may never hear again
Actual text message exchange in which I engaged on Valentine's Day:
Me: Just saw Brokeback Mountain. You were right - I cried my head off! If I could be reincarnated I think I'd like to come back as a gay cowboy in the 60s, just so I could support the cause!
Sean: I think you'd make a fantastic gay cowboy, whether in the 60s or today! The hat and the boots would be most becoming! Can you ride a horse?
Me: I think that's the nicest thing anyone has said to me all day! Alas, I cannot ride a horse.
Sean: Well I guess you wouldn't necessarily NEED the horse... That's what the other gay cowboys are for!
Me: Err... Are we talking about MY ideal afterlife or YOURS?
So while there were no lovely Valentine's Day surprises for little old me this year, I may have inadvertently found a new ambition. I do already have some very cute cowboy boots!
