I'm glad that we live in a world where a girl can stink up an entire grocery store aisle and can still get the guy's number. And I'm glad there are men out there who recognize the forces of nature lay their stinky hand on women too.
This hilarious missed connection on Craigslist got me thinking about my favorite holiday movie... "The Holiday." You know the one. Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet are two love-lorn women who exchange homes for a month and just happen to find the loves of their lives in the process. Gag me, yes. But Jude Law and Jack Black are quality suitors so I can accept it. Anyway, Kate Winslet happens upon this cute, old man who was in the movie business in his prime, and he describes to her the concept of a "meet cute."
"Say a man and a woman both need something to sleep in and both go to the same men's pajama department. The man says to the salesman, "I just need bottoms," and the woman says, "I just need a top." They look at each other and that's the 'meet cute.'"
And just to think, if the farting woman happens upon this Craigslist ad, this couple could potentially say their 'meet cute' was over a bad case of gas. They can one day tell their grandchildren that Grampy called Granny a Clydesdale on the internet and their love flourished right then and there. That's really something special.
I have yet to experience my own 'meet cute.' I don't think meeting over the keg at a frat party really qualifies, and I'm not ready to test the waters by letting one rip in front of a hot guy just in case he's into that kinda thing. But I'm still holding out hope.
Have you ever had a perfect 'meet cute'?
