Dad and I watched The Palm Beach Story last night after B went to bed. It’s a great movie with fantastic bits of hilarity (Captain McGloo, The Weinie King, you just have to see it). Anyway, the plot line is about a woman who tries to divorce her husband so that she can help him with his struggling architecture business and she doesn’t have to worry any more about paying the bills. Her idea is to find someone else rich to marry who will give her ex the money he needs, and she thinks she can get it, too. “You have no idea what a long-legged woman can do without doing anything”.
Anyway, Dad asked me, part joking, if I would leave and find a man who already had a bunch of money. Of course I wouldn’t. First of all, I haven’t yet met a man since Dad that appeals to me on all the levels that he does. Secondly, it’s pretty fun working on this stuff together, as a team. Having it all handed to you would be great, but getting there makes it so much more satisfying.
