Bernie sounds like a catch. I'm glad for you.
My date with Curly started out awkwardly. I let it slip that I'd won the Preakness too, and he started getting all uptight until he realized that his time was faster than mine. Thank goodness it didn't even occur to him to ask about any other races. I don't think he could have taken it if I'd told him about my time in the Woodward!
Fortunately, I was able to put him at ease by telling him that chestnut was my favorite color and praising his conformation. After that, things went pretty well. As to how
well, I will leave that to your imagination.
