    The Good Man List

    Am I Picky or What?
    For whatever reason last night, I remembered my Good Man List that I started in high school. This is a 100+ item list of the things I was looking for in Mr. Right. I dug it out of the office and was cracking up reading it! The best part is seeing the crossed out/ammended items. LOL! It's also hilarious seeing the different sections that were written after a relationship had ended (and, of course, the ex-boyfriend-specific items that were then added to the list!). As you read The List, remember that this was started in high school, so some things are pretty redundant and silly!

    #1, 20, and 87.

    #20 *is* pretty broad though. Not an Ave Rat by any means...but...um...as far as I know GQ hasn't called either. If not #20 my next guess is #26.

    But we love Mr. Bee either way. :)

    #1 was definitely one of them!
