The Girl is beautiful, brilliant and fearless, with a penchant for world travel. Majoring in Arabic and Middle Eastern studies, she was compelled to take a solo trip to Morocco last summer for some language and cultural immersion. Although i’m generally supportive of this, i did have some ‘mother worries’ since she was going alone.
About a week into her trip, i get the e-mail:
it started off simply enough… after some general travel logistics information, there was this:
“i met the most amazing man on the train from Casablanca to Marrakesh…”
No matter how hard i tried to read the rest of her message, my brain kept taking me elsewhere.
A humid, Moroccan courtroom, where i’m being silenced by smirking magistrates when offering pleas for the release of my grandchild…
The scene where my daughter and i run through the crowded marketplace, clutching a crying baby as we try to elude machete-wielding thugs.
Or, worst of all… a CNN news studio, where i’m being interviewed by Nancy Grace, sharing gut-wrenching tales of injustice at the hands of cold-hearted bullies.
After her safe return, and quite an adventure, i told her of my concerns. Her response: “Hold out for Anderson Cooper…”
Gawd he’s hot. I would tear his ass up. Yeap, save it for Cooper. Besides, Nancy Grace drives people to suicide. Avoid her like you would an STD.
uw – and the word for anderson cooper? “Slurrrrrp!” [and that’ll totally gross out my kids…. tee hee!]
um… I’m not sold on him judging from that pic. but that’s ok – it means when we three get together for a chicks night out we’ll be eyeing up different toy boys 🙂
No need to be concerned. They hardly ever use machetes in Morocco
nm – he’s an acquired taste. but in fact, nancy grace is evil incarnate, so it’s a step up.
kyknoord – welcome to The Park. and yes, my daughter informed me that Morocco is quite civil. mother hormones know no logic…
He doesn’t do much for me either, then again, I’ve never seen him ‘in action’.
Listen ladies, Cooper is smokin’ hot. I promise. He makes me love myself all the time.
