More About HIM

A lot of people have been asking me about HIM. Who is HE? Why don't you just say who HE is?

I'm getting a lot of folks guessing or, even worse, thinking they know who HE is when they, in fact, have no clue. So, I thought I would write one entire blog on the subject of HIM. I guess you could call this a HE FAQ. Here goes.

1. Who is HE?
HE is somebody who shall remain nameless, probably because he sometimes reads this and mostly because I do not want folks teasing me about HIM. Or asking too many questions. HE is more a personae than you might think. Think of HIM as partly a guy I used to work with and partly the "Mr. Right" I want to meet and captivate someday.

2. Isn't HE just really ?
Most (all) of your guesses have been very inaccurate. I'm surprised at some of the folks you people think I'm carrying a torch for. Geesh. Above all, do you not think I have any taste?

3. Does HE really exist?
Yes. I worked with HIM in a prior job and we've kept in touch. Note that, YOU may not know everybody that I've worked with in the past, as I've had many jobs, some for a short time. So, drawing upon this logical conclusion, it's entirely possible that HE exists and is a real person while YOU have simply never met him. Sorry to break the bad news to you. :~)

4. What does HE look like?
Tall, sandy hair. Drives a sporty car. Clean shaven. Enough said.

5. Will you ever reveal HIS identity?
Perhaps someday, but not anytime soon. I prefer to write about HIM in the third person. Makes for a more interesting read. Don't you think? Plus I feel more free and anonymous this way. Just a personal preference, I suppose.

6. Are you trying to drive me crazy with this HIM and HE and HIS?
Sorry but, you're probably already there and I had nothing to do with it. Well, ok. Maybe just a little bit to do with it. But, c'mon, admit it. YOU can't pin most of IT on ME.

7. Can you tell me anything else about HIM?
Already have. Let's see....he's likes chess. Hangs out in Hyde Park. Has an X-girlfriend. Works for a big company in high-tech. He drinks tea (Earl Grey, in case you could not figure it out.) Is well traveled (been to every country on the globe.) He does Judo and practices some martial arts (actually he's pretty good from what I hear.) He's polite and soft-spoken. He's a more than adequate photographer and author. Gosh, what more do you want to know? (Sorry, I've never measured his penis size. And it's not like I'd care either.)

8. Why don't you just ask HIM out?
This one has several answers. Mostly because I do not ask men out. I'm too shy. But also because WE are mostly friends and it wouldn't be good (or healthy) to go out with such a good friend. It would be a great way to ruin an otherwise great relationship. Sorry, but I suppose the real answer lies somewhere between the "F" word and my shyness. :~)

9. If you won't ask him out and you won't tell who he is, why don't you shut up about HIM already?
Because you keep nagging me about HIM and HE makes for interesting blogs. Plus WE are friends. He is an integral part of Carol's Little World. In fact, HE's part of the reason I started blogging in the first place.

10. If you carry such a torch for HIM, why don't you blog about HIM every day?
I blog about HIM when I see HIM or when HE crosses my mind. Note that, this sort of implies that you are privy to the inner workings of MY mind, which is a scary thought in and of itself (for YOU anyway.)

So now you know. Or don't know. Or don't care. Welcome to life in Carol's Little World. Enjoy the view.

Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in "Carol's Little World" signing off.
