You're Beautiful


I find it amusing that a pretty face often reduces one to the level of a gibbering arsehole!
It's a common  phenomenon amongst the middle aged and overlooked I guess
I took Winnie up to the vets today to collect William's prescription. Ever since her near death experience with pyrometra a year or so ago, Winnie has delighted the reception staff with the occasional royal visit and now will take herself off through the office door in order to have a mooch " below stairs"
Today as I was paying the bill, and as She was happily sharing a bag of cheese and onion Crisps with one of the nursing aides, a new young George Clooney vet strode in like Samson and boomed in a deep chocolate voice " Now where did this big beautiful girl come from!" 
Winnie smiled at him briefly between mouthfuls and offered her vulva up to be inspected
George Clooney rubbed her bottom with a manly hand
" She should be on a diet !" He purred
and I started to babble " Well she's lost nearly three kilos this year, which is good, given ....that ...she ..steals food from the other dogs .......it's very hard.....!" 
The George Clooney vet looked at me with baby blue eyes and smiled as Winnie crunched another crisp
" She has a beautiful face !" He said
" so do you !" I almost said , but thankfully didn't....I just giggled like a schoolgirl as he waved a hand and sauntered from the office
Hey ho

  2. Oh swoon is right! I think the Prof should come home - soon. You have been left too long along, John.

  3. Many years ago, I took one of our dogs to the Vet, and in walked one of the most gorgeous young men I'd ever seen - he was a visiting Vet while the regular one was on vacation. Absolutely movie star worthy - black hair, blue eyes, tall... And just as I was (speechlessly) processing him, the door opened, and in walked one of the most beautiful young WOMEN I'd ever seen! Very short dark hair, perfect skin, teeth, figure. She was a second visiting Vet, both were fresh out of school. I will never forget that, it was so odd to see TWO such gorgeous young people in that setting... Unfortunately, I never saw them there again, lol!

    Many years ago, I was visiting a nursery school classroom to meet my supervising teacher (named Chris) prior to starting an internship. Children had gone for the day, and I knocked on the half open door and entered. Instead of the typical cozy maternal pre-school teacher I expected to see, across the room was a extraordinarily handsome 6-foot blond gentleman about 5 years older than I. Startled, I walked across the classroom, extending my hand, and tripped over a wee wooden seat I didn't see at all in the way. Well, I managed to right myself without hitting the floor, and I think I conducted myself professionally from that point on as he accepted me as an intern. He turned out to be one of the best teachers of small children I've ever encountered, and a great mentor. And I actually forgot how handsome he was once we'd worked together for a week or so.

  5. I once sat next to Viggo Mortensen on a flight into LA. This was before LOTR. Can you say "Holy heart attack"

  6. I think there's something sexy about vets in general, whatever they look like. Or maybe I'm just fantasising about not having to pay the bills if you were married to one ...

    1. Too true.. and imho vets are better than doctors, they actually have to diagnose the problem as they cant expect a verbal explanation of the symptoms from their patients

    2. And they usually have lovely clean hands

  8. At my advanced age I can now say things like "So do you!" and no one thinks a thing of it.
    I embarrass my children when I tell check-out people in restaurants or stores, "Your mama must be so proud of you!" I don't care. With all of the burdens aging brings, there absolutely should be some benefits and being able to tell a beautiful human being that they are beautiful without being thought of as creepy or weird is definitely one of them in my book.

  9. It's healthy when a heart can go pitty pat! And Winnie has always been a heart melter.

  10. That was probably not the first time he had someone babble and giggle when they first met him. Do you ever visibly blush? I once met a film star and couldn't even speak to answer him because I was so taken with him. I could have kicked myself afterwards for blowing my one chance to have a conversation(if not more) with him.-Mary

  11. Hopefully next time to be friendly.... he will rub your bottom but not tell you to lose weight. ;)

  12. I'm aging myself here (62), but when I was pregnant with my second son forty some odd years ago I got care from a clinic where the doctor's were on rotation. I was taken to an exam room, and in walked, wait for it, John Saxon! Not really but he sure looked like his twin brother. I was tongue tied because I always had a major crush on that particular actor. I just laid there and pretended it was the real thing :)

    1. He had a high hair line and a hairy chest as I recall

    2. High hair line, I like that. Sounds so much better than receding. He had/has the most beautiful dark eyes and smile. Not classically handsome, but I kind of like quirky.

  18. I know how you mean. After a big jump in cost of a cleaning I had at the dentist yesterday, I blogged about beefing the bill until I learned it was because the dentist, whom I refer to as Doctor McDreamy, had graced my presence for all of 60 seconds. He's so handsome, I decided it was worth an extra $120 to have that brief interaction.

  19. I broke a bone in my foot about 10 years ago and went to a George Clooney look-alike orthopedist. I never minded having four or five return visits. His office was always full of patients.

  20. Yep ..............we had the most gorgeous male physiotherapist renting out one of our health centre rooms for his private clinic . I think he spent most of his time seeing the practices female members of staff , including the GP’s ! We all went into mourning when he acquired new premises elsewhere ......

  21. In college, I once volunteered for a charity fundraiser. I was stunned upon seeing the most beautiful brown eyed girl about my age also helping out at the event. I was shocked to learn that she was a novitiate, training to become a nun!

    Never had I wanted so badly to be a decorated war captain in need of a governess for his motherless, unruly children, who could benefit from singing and dancing lessons and wearing play clothes made out of curtains.


    P.S. What a superstar Winnie is, getting all that attention wherever she struts. And lucky you, her chauffer and assistant and bodyguard!!!

  24. I used to bartend with a tall, blue-eyed, brown-haired man who was not only stunning to look at but also funny & nice. -sort of the total package. I'd average a buck tip per drink & he'd get a few dollars to five per drink. We both mixed a tasty cocktail, but he was getting tipped for being a stone fox. I thought it was great as we pooled tips.

  25. I was in an Italian restaurant in London with my husband and kids when a gorgeous demi-god walked through the kitchen door. I nearly dropped my fork and I did drop my jaw. Another time I was walking along the streets of San Francisco when a delivery cyclist had to stop at the same streetlight as my group. I could think nothing but naughty thoughts for the rest of the day! There is also a hostess at a nearby restaurant who is one of the most gorgeous young women I have ever seen. I can't help but stare at her. I have a feeling your pets my be feeling unwell more often.

  28. The same exact thing happened to me when I took Murphy to the vet last week. The vet came into the examining room, a new vet to the practice. The guy couldn't have been a day over 32, but just to look at him sent my heart racing. I barely heard anything he said about my dog...

  29. The most gorgeous chap I ever set eyes on was when I was 18 and I was on my way to look at Kent Uni. I was late for the train at Victoria and hurled myself on at the last minute. I sat down and looked up...I have never seen the like either before or since, but it is forever burnt into my memory. Arilx

  30. If I get a little daft when I am older, I hope I develop the ability to say the little things that pop into my mind, that I have spent a lifetime suppressing.

    If you had said what you thought, you might have ended up with a new friend.

  33. This precious! If we could be so direct as Winnie is!!
    I remember the first time I was face to face unexpectedly with Ron many years ago.........in a crowded movie theatre lobby at the canteen buying popcorn and pop/soda. Arms full...turned around....who was right behind me?! Dropped the works! And was speechless! Left it all on the floor and headed back inside the theatre. Gibbering arsehole at 25!!!

    You and your stories are too precious. I get what you're saying, though. Wish I was 30 years younger (but knowing what I know now). Maybe, in my next life . . .

  35. When I was 21, I lived in Hollywood California and worked for a Talent Management Agency.
    John Wayne's British secretary called all the time, very nice, (British) none of them ever came in though ... then I moved to LA and got a job for a movie director .. then I got to meet and even hang out with various movie stars. looking back .. , it was a perfect time and I was a perfect age ..

  36. I wonder what it would be like to BE one of the beautiful people? And have people giggling and blushing and dithering as you enter a room. Proably a very mixed blessing that I will never experience.

  37. I am naturally clumsy, but show me a handsome face and I turn into a full-blown slapstick routine. I long to glance briefly through fullsome lashes and deliver a wry smile. In reality I will trip, drop my purse or my bra strap will twang apart.

  38. Oh, John! You made me laugh - thank you for that!
    You described those thoughts and feelings so well. Love it, love you.

  39. Someone critising your pet can make you gibber. My husband went totally silly when the sexy female vet said our now skinny old girl cat who used to be a fattie (rotund) needed to lose weight.
    "but shes got a small head" he gibbered like a prat was totally lost on this babe. serves him right for flirting.

  40. I too have giggled like a schoolgirl when in the company of a handsome male as I lose all power of proper speech.
