Monday Mimisms ~ A Little Birdie Told Me...






One snowy Inauguration Day ....
that I should wait for a man like this.

I thought it was perfect advice.
It came from a male birdie.
He whispered in my ear..

"Find someone who calls you beautiful instead of hot.

Who calls you back when you hang up on them.

Who will stay awake just to watch you sleep.

Wait for someone who kisses your forehead.

Who wants to show you off to the world even when you may not look your best.


Who holds your hand in front of his friends.




Wait for the one who turns to his friends and says, "...that's her."
Never stops loving you, even when you are disagreeing.

Wait for the one who reminds you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you."




He crawled back into his nest before I had a chance to ask where to find such a mythical creature. Do you suppose he meant only in the animal kingdom?

The next time I go frolicking through Bloggingham's slippery slopes alone -
I hope I'm not alone.
My mother is starting to worry that I'm talking to birds.
And I'm getting sick of falling.

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Hmmm ... Does this mean you "did find" the fellow that kisses your forehead?

Barbara said...

Hello Mimi,
What a smart little birdie :)
Never give up hope, dear.

Hugs XX

The Gal Herself said...

Thank you for writing what I feel. I, too, am waiting and am BEYOND sick of falling. This is beautiful, and I suspect you speak for many of us.

Mimi Lenox said...

Billy - I'm glad you popped in from the great white slopes of Canada. Have a great day!

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - I did. And then I did not. I did again. And then I did not. Is that clear as mud?

Sigh.

Mimi Lenox said...

Barbara - Not giving up hope, dear. But the walk is getting weary. It was time to say it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - I feel a major post coming on about this subject. It has been rolling around and boiling for four days. Which means (duh Mimi) that you'd better write it down.

Thank you.

Bond said...

Soon.... very soon my friend...

Charles Gramlich said...

Smart birdie, good advice to both sexes.

The Gal Herself said...

I have my 5 questions for you posted in the comments of my "Interview Me" post. Come and get it!

RennyBA said...

Good to see and read about how well even small animals cope with nature. Me - coming from Norway - just love snow of course :-)

bundleocontradictions said...

Can't help but have a cynical reaction to this one, Your Majesty. This is what my brain said:
"Yeah, yeah, I found such a one & 13 years later he only acknowledges me to bicker & criticize my cooking & the occasional encounter that has lost all romance."
Sorry, Mimi, I guess you struck a nerve. I want all of that stuff back. I want to feel special again, too.

Through Thick and Thin said...

Mimi - i've tagged you. come see...

Akelamalu said...

You know what Mimi? Mr Right is going to turn up when you're not looking, I'm sure of it. x

Desert Songbird said...

You may talk to birds, but I would never DARE call you a bird brain. *grin*

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - Are you placing bets on that?

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - I thought it was excellent jargon for a bird.

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - I shall be there shortly but my answers will have to wait for a couple of days. Is that OK?
I have a few things on tap...

Mimi Lenox said...

Renny - We don't get a lot of snow but when we do I love it. Thanks for dropping by.

Mimi Lenox said...

Autumn - You can always speak your mind here....cynicism, ranting...it's all welcome. It is no pleasure to actually be in a relationship such as you describe. To me, that is much worse than being alone.

The dating scene is no picnic either. I, for one, am damned tired of players.

(gasp. The Queen cussed)

Mimi Lenox said...

Debbie - I shall be over, my dear.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - If he shows up before our vacation, can we join me in the suitcase? Just askin'....

Mimi Lenox said...

Desert - That made me laugh. Thanks.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Listen my queen, if you continue to talk to the birdies you will never get a man. Just saying. They will think you are daft. You are a queen for Gods sake.

You crack me up. When you quit looking you will find him.

Have a terrific week. Big hug. :)

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

Stick to the frogs Mimi! You'll know him when you see him :)

Travis said...

But you're cute when you talk to birds and fall down.

Patti said...

I agree with Sandee, Queen Mimi. When you stop looking for him, he will be there.

In January of '85, a woman I had just met told me something similar about meeting Mr. Right. And it came true a week later.

BTW, do the birds speak English to you? Mine just chirp.

meleah rebeccah said...

I don't think that man exists. At least not anymore.

Julie said...

But you know what Queen Mimi? You always know how to get back up. You do it with grace, wisdom and a smile. And you always remember to straighten your crown.

*hugs*

Ferd said...

The little birdie, and Dawn, are right.
Go about it peacefully. It will happen when it's supposed to.

Mimi Lenox said...

Sandee - Oh but Sandee....the birdies never talk back. They have better manners than Homer or most of my dates. Just sayin'...

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - Frogs are yukky. Are you suuurreee????

Mimi Lenox said...

P.S. Dawn...Maybe I need bifocals and binoculars too.

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - That made me laugh. Ha! Thank you my friend.

Mimi Lenox said...

Patti - There has to middle ground between "not looking" and "making yourself available."
It is a precarious and frustrating dance.

Mimi Lenox said...

Meleah - I'm sorry.

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie - But why must I do it publicly? Sigh.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ferd - I feel that I am "going about it peacefully"...doesn't make the whole ridiculous dating scene any less ridiculous.

Julie said...

Well.....**goes to chat to find Mimi**

Mark said...

The bird is very wise and yes these creatures do exist!

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie - Hugs to you.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mark - They are rare creatures indeed.

Mimi Lenox said...

I think they may even be on the extinction list!

Mimi Lenox said...

OK. I'll try to control my cynicism...

Jamie said...

That is one very wise bird. Where was he when I needed him? :-)

Mojo said...

Umm... sounds like the birdie was talking about a dog. No, I mean a real dog, not a ... *sigh*... you know.

It must be difficult to have your choice of ... birds. With so many to pick from I can see how it would be difficult to make up your mind.

Just don't give up... and don't "settle". Because as somebody famous (whose name I forget) once said: "The moment you settle for less than you deserve, you get less than you settled for."

You'll know, Majesty. You'll know.

jennifer said...

I do believe, that THIS, is my ALL time favorite Mimi post. The pictures, the pink lipstick, the colors of white, blue, and brown, and of course, the words (spoken by a little bird).

I think that I HAD the things that the little bird told you to wait for, but they have changed. Not for worse, just different.

He likes sleep FAR too much to sit and watch ME sleep :)

There is someone out there Mimi, I just don't know if he is worthy of you.

Julie said...

Jen! **waves** She DOES have pretty lips doesn't she?

Tee hee hee!

Maryam in Marrakesh said...

Mimi,
I am always in awe of how many male readers you have. I think I have about 2 on my blog. What am I doing wrong? sniff.

I want you to remember this about men: they can be coached. Seriously, my husband was, cough, a gem in the rough. But I have coached him. They are trainable!!!!

xo
your friend in Marrakech,
Maryam

Mimi Lenox said...

Jamie - Little birds show up at the strangest times...

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - Present company excluded, men can be so clueless and insensitive. I'm beginning to think it's the norm, Mojo. I'd have to be a moron not to connect the dots.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jennifer - That is sweet of you to say. I'm not looking for perfection - just honesty.

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie - Thank you my friend. You are so silly!

Mimi Lenox said...

Maryam you gorgeous thing you - You are doing nothing wrong. Didn't you just reach one million readers? Amazing!

Trainable...huh? Hmmm....not sure I have the patience but we'll see.

Ricardo said...

How great is it that Obama is calling the shots? I'm so relieved.

Now Hot and beautiful are indeed 2 different things. Hot is only surface level and beautiful is both surface level and internalized. It's the highest grade of beauty in women because she's firing on all cylinders. She's got the looks and personality to back it up and is comfortable with both but not self absorbed or arrogant. She's able to just be with a quiet confidence.

At least that's my take on it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ricardo - Beautiful explanation.

And yes, "relieved" is a great word to use in reference to our new Commander In Chief.

Don said...

Mimi, there is a guy out there - there's a guy for everyone, as there's a girl for everyone. Why, I almost had a New Year's Eve date with a girl that a birdie told me about - we settled for a phone call.

Yes, the prospects can suck, and there's more than enough losers out there to make you want to throw your hands up in surrender and become a nun. But there's a certain philosophy that I apply to this - and to my boss, when I need something at work.

"If you don't ask, you're not very likely to receive."

In other words, you just have to keep it up, despite how exhausting it can be. Take a break now and then if you have to, but always be on the lookout, always be open to the random encounter rather than the arranged set-up. Occasionally you'll be surprised at what's right there under your nose.

Moving to a bigger city would help, too. I'm just sayin'...

OK, I'm glad I got that out of my system...

Mimi Lenox said...

Don - Thanks for the male opinion on this issue! Appreciated.
