My Hero!

January 7, 2018

Words of wisdom when it comes to choosing a partner.

In a recent job interview, I asked the applicant, “Who is your hero?”

She paused momentarily, then her answer surprised me. “My dog,” she responded unflappably.

“Your dog?” I was expecting something like Maya Angelou or maybe Mahatma Gandhi.

“Yes, my dog,” she continued. “He’s happy. He’s kind. He respects me for who I am, his love is unconditional and he’s comfortable in his own skin. Completely different from my last boyfriend and a great example of what I’m looking for in a long-term relationship.”
