I like to think I am. Now, I'm not talking about in the weight room strong. I'm not a quitter. If I start something, I want to take it its conclusion. I want to complete the deal. During my professional career, I had a mantra that the kids often heard me repeat over and over, 'finish strong'. Try not to waver at the end. Now, I can adapt; I'm not stupid. Like a coach who excels, I think I'm pretty good at making halftime changes. When I see the odds stacked against me, I'm not adverse to making mid-course corrections, but I'm one that likes to finish the job. I'm not one who likes to leave my tools of the job strewn about at the end and contemplating the 'what might have beens'. That's me.
Weakness? Yes, I have a few, but like most of us I like to keep them 'close to the vest' (there's that idiom again).
Do you have any?
I'm not talking about chocolate here either.
My name is Birdman, and I have a weakness... for blondes.
There, it's out!
I might need a 12-Step Program.
When I backtrack my romantic pursuits back through high school and college years, it gets scary. There seems to be one constant, blondes. One after the other. What's it all about?
I won't bore you with my list of intrigues.
Well, there's Stephani, Heidi, Aniston, Swift, Johansson, Spears (it's sad) ...
It's a long list.
And yes, Elenka is a blonde.
*today's trip was kind of convoluted. Still with me?
Care to reveal a weakness?

Always with you, Birdman, no matter where you ramble 'cause getting there is such an intriguing event.ReplyDelete
Bald.....bald men that is. Since we are confessing to weaknesses. When I was a young girl it was Yul Brynner, these days it's Patrick Steward.ReplyDelete
well, consistency could be a strength. :)ReplyDelete
Good point. A strength and a weakness all rolled into one. hahaDelete
You just mentioned one of my many weaknesses: chocolate, in any form. Do not laugh at me: it is almost an addiction that I can barely keep under control. Even on a tight diet I must find place for a bit of chocolate or it won't ever work.ReplyDelete
By the way, I also like blondes...
That was quite a trip, Birdman. How come chocolate doesn't count as a weakness?ReplyDelete
I can't follow you there - my wife is a brunette :-)ReplyDelete
I love blond guys! :o) So I understand you perfectly! :o)ReplyDelete
I'm still thinking . . . :-)ReplyDelete
I've been worrying this topic all day! Weakness is worrying me thinks.ReplyDelete
An abbreviated list of weaknesses: I'm terrified of mice. I can be very cranky when I'm hungry or tired. I can't change a tire. I have terrible penmanship. I'm extremely impatient. And, I'm sort of a know-it-all.ReplyDelete
I can't say what I want to say here because I'd get banned... :-) Weaknesses? Oh many...ReplyDelete
Well, chocolate's a good and tasty weakness!ReplyDelete
Forgiveness is a hard one for me. To borrow a phrase, my good opinion once lost is lost forever.
I have too many to count, but you mentioned chocolate and that is at the top of my list! Gorgeous horse by the way.ReplyDelete
Hmmmmmm....follow through on home projects would be a weakness for me and wine :)ReplyDelete
Weaknesses? weaknesses? Hmmmmmm. No, I don't have any.ReplyDelete
A 12 step program for blonds? I think you need to admit that there is a power greater than you, then make a searching inventory of those you may have offended.ReplyDelete
I like this blond too! Surprise, surprise.ReplyDelete
Does Elenka know all this before she reads it on your blog?ReplyDelete
Seems you also seem to select for uncommon names, too. Nary a Mary among them.ReplyDelete
