Once again, I have been thinking a lot about time- I never feel like I have enough of it. Three things always run through my head when I think about time:
1. Jessie Spano when she had her freak out on Saved by the Bell. There’s never enough time!
2. That wise quote I read once read: we have just as much time as Hellen Keller, Albert Einstein…and all those over heroic people.
3. That terrible/amazing old country song…have no idea who sings it, but lyrics go like this: “I’m in a hurry and don’t know why…I rush and rush until life’s no fun. All I really got to do is live and die, so I’m in a hurry and don’t know why.
(Side Note: my lyrics could be off. I once thought M.C. Hammer’s Too Legit was, “tell the jerk, tell the jerk to quit.” Say it in your head to the Too Legit song… I was “legit” in thinking this.)
Okay, so now on to the real meaning of my post. (If there is a meaning) This story was just too crazy not to share - Tuesday night, the local NBC news did a story on a woman that has already set her wedding date and venue, but she does not have a groom! (February 15, 2011) Do you call this proactive or crazy? I choose the latter.
The 35-year old woman has turned to Facebook and YouTube to market herself, and she has been on 46 dates, yet still no lover.
I thought of the pressure this woman must be under and the “time crunch.” I could not handle the pressure. Nor could I handle being out in the open that I am desperately hunting a man, that’s another story. She was very calm in her on-air interview and is hopeful she'll find love before her deadline.
So when I start to think I have no time, I am going to add a 4th point – “I do not have a wedding date set 7 months away and no groom to be.”
And for this woman, I wish her luck. I guess nobody ever told her, “you can’t put a timeline on love.” …. Or can you? February 15th 2011. She might be a loner at the alter.
