My favorite character from the Charlie Brown comic strips/cartoons? Pig-Pen. Always has been. I remember the day I pointed him out to Emilee, she laughed and immediately asked why the dust followed him. I grinned back and said, “Cuz he’s PigPen!”
Okay so … as I’m a blogger, and if you read me with any regularity, you know that I most commonly blog about my life as a single mom, and the dating scene of course, amongst a variety of other random crazy things. With regularity you’ve read of all my dates, my weird things and of course, of my life with Miss Em. Lately however, I’ve been keeping a secret from all of you. Even my Cookie isn’t familiar with this secret. ShaNaNa doesn’t know. Wingman does not know. Pretty much the only one that knows?
Cuz she met him yesterday. As did the rest of my family.
So yes friends, I’ve met a boy. And I’ve been seeing a boy. And yesterday, I took him to meet the fam for Easter.
I’m still in a bit of shock myself. Seriously.
Okay so, let’s see here. His nickname in this blog is Pig-Pen. It’s what his family nicknamed him as a kid, and I had to laugh at that, considering my favorite Peanuts character has forever been Pig-Pen himself. He is my age, and has one son. We’ve not met each other’s children, and for a while we’ve no plans to do so. He’s cute. He’s tall. He’s charming. He’s fun. He smells good. He has lips that I can’t wait for ShaNaNa to see (she has a thing for lips). He’s a good dad, which is sexy as hell. He’s good to his word, and that is sexy as hell too. He drinks beer and martini’s.
So, in short, as Emilee would say, he’s a total beefcake.
Whew. I feel better confessing my secret. I hope it’s not gonna bite me in the ass. ;) I hope you all had as wonderful of an Easter as we did!!
