How to Impress a Lady
Dealing Blackjack the other night the discussion at the table centered around drinking, vacations, couples, dating, marriage, divorce and the rules of the road surrounding each. Being newly single again (after 23 years of marriage) one of the guys at my table had some sound advice for me that I am going to pass on to all of you.
During one of the moments as I was shuffling the eight decks of cards, this kind gentleman reached in his pocket and gave me a 3" x 5" card which was titled "How to Impress a Lady", in an easy to read block style font, it read:
"Wine her, Dine her, Call her, Hug her, Support her, Hold her, Surprise her, Compliment her, Smile at her, Listen to her, Laugh with her, Cry with her, Romance her, Encourage her, Believe in her, Pray with her, Cuddle with her, Shop with her, Give her jewelry, Buy her flowers, Hold her hand, Write love letters to her, Go to the end of the Earth and back again for her." (I now know where I went wrong, haha)
He then said to turn the card over, I did such and it was titled "How to Impress a Man" and printed in a fancy script font it read: "Show up naked . . . Bring food . . . Don't block the TV".
Thanks to this kind stranger, I have learned so much and am happy to pass these words of wisdom along to all of you. You never know where or when you may learn something important as I did the other night while dealing Blackjack.
