Gloria DiFulvio, thank you! I’m so glad you like our story, and thank you for telling me one of yours. What makes it even better is, we have a very similar one.

Years ago, a decade or more, one of us stumbled on an “Interactive First Date Self-Esteem Booster.” You would click on a first date worry, like, “Does this dress make my butt look big?” and get a video response. The guy in the video was an over-the-top actor with a bogus accent of non-specific origin. Italian? Spanish? Greek?

[click] Does this dress make my butt look big?

[video] Noooooooo! No no no no NO! Is no such thing as too big butt! More butt is more better! A man wants something to hold on to! You know what I mean, don’t you darling! I know you do! Is no such thing as too big butt!

So that became one of our phrases that was packed with more meaning than meets the eye, roughly meaning don’t worry, everything will be fine.

Thanks again, Gloria. I’m glad you have gotten to know Grace a little. She was so much more wonderful than I can describe. I wish Grace and I could have you and Sally over for an evening of wine and stories. That would be epic!
