You might think I'm partial to Comedian and author Tom Irwin cause he's a Boston Red Sox fan, a nice Irish Catholic boy, and has served our nation, both in the military, and entertaining troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. And you'd be correct.
But I really like the idea that Tom's put some thought into which of the myriad qualities that are "woman" would make the perfect "Girl" for him. And anytime a guy puts some thought into male/female relationships, I think we need to reward him for the effort. Tom's new book, "I Want a Girl: Thoughts on the Perfect Companion" is sweet, funny, and reminds one of how nice it is when I guy notices something unique about the woman inside each of us. Please offer Tom a warm Bella buongiorno...
I'd like to tell you a little about the author (me) before I get started. I am a comedian who lives in
After moving to
I have been to
I grew up in an Irish Catholic household with four sisters. In doing so, you cannot help but be affected by how women tick. It took awhile, but I finally learned things such as saying “why don’t you just get a different one?” is not an acceptable answer when your sister tells you she's lost the backing to her favorite earring. No, you get up off the couch and pull all the cushions off and look for THAT backing. It’s a big deal. I just didn’t realize it at the time. My sisters and my mother have taught me a lot in my life, and I am eternally grateful for that.
…Who laughs at the cheesy songs we hear at the laundromat.
…Who gives me a kiss and says “I love to watch you sleep”.
…Who sends me handwritten letters even though we live in the same town.
... Who encourages me to chase my dreams, while she is chasing hers.
…Whose favorite part of eating Chinese food is the fortune cookies.
….Who thinks Christmas gifts should be opened with lots of drinks and the Elvis Christmas album on repeat.
What’s the best lesson a woman can teach a man?
