Back in the day when you were still dating, did you ever have a friend, cousin...or even your well-meaning mother...do a "fix-up" for you?
And didn't they always swear up and down, he/she was perfect for you?
And didn't they always guilt you into going when you said "thanks, but no thanks" by crying if you didn't go...they couldn't go?
And didn't you always cave...even when you knew better...and agree to go anyway...hoping against hope for Captain Jack Sparrow?
And ending up instead with Captain Underpants?
Yeah...I thought so!
Happened to the best of us!
(For the record...I once spent an entire evening perched on the roof of a '55 Chevy while at the drive-in with my so-called perfect match! I shall forever remember him fondly as Sir Handsalot...and I'm still not speaking to my cousin for thinking that troll was
my anybody's perfect date!)
was meeting La LuLu!
I tell y'all...I was gobsmacked!
La LuLu is everything you read on her blog...and more! She's delightful, insightful, and...
oh gosh...what's another 'ful word to describe her? Forget it...there just aren't words enough! She is the person you visit when you pop in...nothing phony or contrived or warty....and I love her!
All I can say is...she was my perfect mystery date. We sat, talked, laughed, cried...and talked some more! Talking was more like catching up with a long lost friend 'cause I felt as if I'd known her forever....an instant connection...a bonding. I truly hated for the afternoon to end, but smiled out loud at the thought of it all the way home!
(Are you reading this Cousin EX? This is the kind of personality you shoulda fixed me up with! Certainly not that guy who thought if a little Hai Karate good...whole bottle even better! "Be careful how you use it"? Yeah right...someone forgot to tell him to read the little manual that came with each and every bottle...assuming he could read!)

Let me tell y'all...if you've never visited W&T's...you might want to think twice about getting yourself in there...PDQ. You never know what kind of treasures you'll take away...maybe even some warm memories that will last
you me a lifetime!
Psst! FYI...also you'll never know who's loitering just around the corner in the alley either! Captains of industry...or
