Too bad he would have celebrated his 151st birthday this year.
Obviously he is dead.
He is Theodore Roosevelt.
The reason I may be single FOREVER? They don't make Theodore Roosevelts anymore.
Extinct this breed is.
I mean sure...there may be one or two in about a million running around, so hunting this down is a job and a half.
Let's go through some traits that T.R. has:
Educated, Harvard style: check
Wealthy Family: check
Fearless and Brave: check
Man's Man: check
Everyone that personally knows him, loves him: check
I just described my perfect man. I can let up on the Harvard and wealthy family - obviously. When one dreams - dream big. But still. Are you going to find all these qualities today?
Do you think someone that went to Harvard would actually be brave enough to fight in war on horseback or lead an expedition down an unknown river in the Amazon?
HELL NO. Mommy and Daddy would not have it.
What happened to this era?
I'll tell ya: It went the way of the dodo bird along with fancy hats and appropriate dress.
What happened to men NOT only being brilliant but also being brave?
Today, you either get some smart dude that would hire someone to install a shelf or some tough guy that thinks higher education is a waste of time.
The species divided and I don't get why or how.
And hey - I will admit the ladies of the world aren't exactly pulling their weight on these renaissance ideas of mine. I just happen to NOT be that incompetent lady. So in my reality: The men have failed me.
I will need to look up some lineage. Meredyth Roosevelt sounds like a regal lady of good breeding. I shall settle for nothing less.
Unfortunately - in today's world I can only think of one family that breeds intelligence with the bravery of war and big game hunting: The Windsor Family.
Really...has the marriage of bravery and smarts become so nonexistent that it is only available in other lands when a crown is involved?
Those Windsor boys are not beefy enough for my taste. But surely they please others. Just the other day Wills called me and asked me for marriage and I said, and I quote "gain 50 lbs and we will talk. I don't know how many stones that is - but surely you can figure that"
For God's sake people!!! Save America! Save the world! Teach your girls to be intelligent and bake a cake. Teach your boys to hit the books and shoot a buck!
Let's get some balance...we can in fact, can be it all.
Stop fitting into a stereotype!!
