List five ways to win your heart.
This one is a little weird for me, because men’s hearts aren’t usually won over. It’s the guys who have to do the winning over of the girl’s heart at the end of the movie (tell me the last time you saw a girl holding a boombox up outside of a guy’s house). Also, I don’t often think about ways that people can endear themselves to me. Maybe I can reframe this as “List five ways to endear me to you”.
Nope, still weird. Anyway, here are five things that make me want to be your friend.
1. Make me laugh
What good is someone to you if they don’t make you laugh once in a while? Of course, that’s not the only reason why you’d be someone’s friend, but really, it’s a biggie. This goes both ways, by the way. If I’m not making you laugh, I never will and just cut me loose now.
2. Talk about food
I’m lucky enough to live in a culture where it’s acceptable to watch a show on a network devoted entirely to food while eating food while planning your next meal. I’m not good at sports, but I’m good at food, so food is my sport. I will debate with you if guacamole with peas is a bad idea (despite never having tried it) or whether you can taste the difference between Pocky and an off-brand chocolate-dipped cookie stick (you totally can).
Okay, I don’t know if I’m breaking any 30 Day Writing challenges or not, but it’s really all I could think of. If I think of more, I’ll update this, but really, the above two items are roughly 90% of what is best in life. For whoever is reading this, what are ways to win your heart? Oh snap, I just flipped it on you.
