The Perfect Speciman.....

You ever have that one person, that woman, that man, that you are captivated by?  Everyone has one.  This isn't necessarily someone you'd want to spend the rest of your life with, simply taking an hour out of your work day to look at them over lunch  will suffice.  As animals we are hard wired to constantly seek out the alpha, the mate that can produce the healthiest offspring.  That animal drive is what attracts all us of to our life partners or "right now" partners and everyone in between. 

Johnny......yeah.....
Let's say you're the happily married/shacked up/attached/engaged person, not willing or wanting to stray from the good that you go home to every night, but then "they" walk in.  You're at the grocery store, the gas station, in class, where ever, and this Greek God/dess (or wherever your tastes lie) strolls by you.  Now this isn't just a physical gut response to a pretty face.  This person has the brain, the talent, that unique thing that makes them interesting to more than just the eye sockets.  Fellas: it could be that long legged brunette who's positively stacked but can supercharge your truck....Ladies:  it could be that masculine anomaly of a man who is infatuated with Shakespeare....


You know the ones, you can't stop yourself from gazing at them yet when they open their mouths you want to actually converse with them.  It becomes almost annoying because you want the conversation, we all do.  We all crave that mental stimulation.....but then you look up after the 55 seconds you spent NOT looking them in the eye and think to yourself, "damn.....if the light bounces off a triceps like that...I wonder what else shimmers.....".  They manage to encompass both worlds somehow, or at least in your own mind they do.  You find that you remind yourself over and over in your head that there are qualities in this person that are deal breakers, most times the thought never really progresses past the right now.  Call it a living fantasy. 


I'm a firm, avid believer in fantasy's.  We need them.  I'm never been one to board the "we're naturally monogamous" train.  I believe we can be, I just don't think that's how we are biologically wired.  We fall in love with the ones who hit every mark, or as many marks as we can get at the very least.  Sometimes it's a compromise or even a settle, but very often if you're patient enough, that one comes along that ends up being the whole package.  That whole package however, always has room for a little fantastic imagery.  If coffee in the middle of the day produces a good conversation and you're able to go home and utilize said conversation, (and by utilize I mean throw it on your lover like a rabid squirrel in the middle of spring) go with it. 


Scarlett......
Remember your boundaries, but remember your primal instincts too.  Beautiful people were made for a reason, just as not so beautiful people were.  I believe there is a mate for everyone on this planet, and I believe that everyone has their own fantasy.  We wouldn't be human if we if we didn't sit back and let our imagination run wild with the checkout girl or the UPS guy. 

Oh and try to remember to call out the right names in bed ;-) Little Suzie cupcake baker doesn't need to come up during the deed....unless that's how ya'll roll of course........
