Beautiful Women Everywhere


T’s pretty sure he works with Natalie Portman.

“You know? Princess Amadala?”

Yeah. I know.

“Well she looks just like her. Except 15 pounds heavier. Maybe. Maybe 15 pounds. Anyway, it looks exactly like her.”

This does not surprise me, that T works with Natalie Portman. It was just a couple months ago that he swore he was working with the Zirtec girl.

“You know? The girl on the commercial for Zirtec?”

No, actually I didn’t know, thus ensuring me 20 minutes' description of her physical beauty.

I’ll spare you the descriptions.

As my grandmother would say, Oh, for land's sake...

“I don’t know what’s going on," he says, "but there’s a lot of really hot chicks out there lately. I mean, you should see the office! What does it mean?”

What does it mean?

It means:
A. The office hires girls right out of high school who go on to discover how much more they could be making elsewhere and move on after a year or so whereupon a new one is hired: Continual influx of fresh teenagers.
B. T prescreens restaurants for cute waitresses and rarely tips less than 20%. He is well-loved by those in the service industry.
C. T has a sense of humor.
D. T might need glasses.

But you know? The more I think about it, the more I think T might be on to something: he sees beautiful women everywhere he looks.

How nice is that?

Plus he works with Natalie Portman.

I'm with T... you beautiful ladies are everywhere.

SherilinR said...

if you're not picky, beauty abounds.

Geo. said...

The Zirtecs may be invading Minnesota like they did the Mayans 500 years ago.

R. Jacob said...

Hmm
I already have glasses
I always tip well
I like older women best
I must be doing something wrong...

Pat said...

When I take my glasses off everyone looks as if they have had a make-over. Incuding me.

The Jules said...

As I get older, I've discovered that there's quite a difference between beautiful and sexy.

The Jules said...

I accidentally pressed publish then before I justified it but, you know what, I'm leaving it.

Pearl said...

Sometimes a little fuzz around the edges is a good thing.

And yes, Jules. I agree with you.

I just think he is wonderful.
To see beauty everywhere, whether it is a woman or a man or child or flower, is a gift.



fishducky said...

What a lovely thought from NotesFromAbroad!!

Lynn said...

I hope it really is her. :)

I always wanted to work with Natalie Portman. I instead got to work with Jabba the Hut (but then Carrie Fischer did come in for a visit sometimes).

As for T, it's so much better than seeing dead people.

esbboston said...

I liked נטעלי הרשלג in the movie "The Professional". (That's her name in her native Hebrew)

Indigo Roth said...

I am surrounded by hot women, all of whom want me, and are prepared to fight each other for the right to make me breakfast.

*nods himself awake*

Sorry, what was I saying?

Leenie said...

Maybe glasses would upgrade his sight, but why would he want to improve on such a good thing?

Ms Sparrow said...

That is a really charming trait, to always see beauty like that.

savannah said...

you know what, sugarpie? you are absolutely the most beautiful woman i know! xoxoxoxox

vanilla said...

In my younger day, all women were beautiful. It was a better world back then. Just sayin'.

Seriously, T is on to something. Why see ugly when there is beauty all around?

Jacquelineand.... said...

That's so sweet, but if he's operating a motor vehicle he might want to get checked out by an optometrist. Just sayin'......

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Ah, to be around someone who sees beauty everywhere.

Jenny Woolf said...

And they do say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Happy man to have the eye!

jenny_o said...

And the worst part? Those young ladies don't know how beautiful they are, most of them anyway. And they won't, until they're 35 or 40 and looking at old pictures :)

Happy Frog and I said...

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder he must be a very happy man indeed. Good for him.

Stephen Hayes said...

Maybe T really is working with Natalie Portman. Now that she isn't Queen Amadala anymore, maybe she needs the bucks.

Gigi said...

We need more people in the world like T. And you.

Belle said...

I love your reasons for why there are more pretty girls at the office.

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Good job T. Most young ladies like to be appreciated (as a matter of fact, most middle aged and older ladies like it also). It is nice that you show your appreciation in 20% tips. It might get you everywhere.

mapstew said...

Mayhaps he was just brung-up good! :¬)

bill lisleman said...

Good looking can be temporary but beautiful last for ages.

HermanTurnip said...

Lucky guy. I happen to work with someone who could be the perfect stand-in for Louie Anderson.

Lazarus said...

Pearl, you're more attractive than any of those women you mentioned. Honestly, have I ever lied to you? See!

Rose L said...

At 60, I do not feel sexy or pretty and avoid catching glimpses of myself in reflective surfaces. The other day one of the regulars in my office, a gentleman in his 70's, came in and stopped, gazed at me and smiled. I asked what I could do for him, and he said, "Young lady (!!!!!) you can sit there and just look pretty. In fact, they should pay you to do just that!" Wow!! You can guess I blushed and that lifted my spirits.

Roshni AaMom said...

Post a photo...I need to know what a 15 pounds-heavier Princess Amydala looks like!

The Elephant's Child said...

There should be more Ts in this world. And I suspect he is happier than most...

Tempo said...

I see beautiful women every where too..not because women are getting prettier but because every woman is beautiful in their own way.
The art is in seeing it...

Linda O'Connell said...

Ahhh, beauty abounds, and so does illusion. I avoid mirrors these days. Youa re right about girls out of high school. What amazes me is, they cake on the makeup, and they are such natural beauties.

Simply Suthern said...

E. T is getting older.

River said...

How lovely to see beautiful women everywhere. T has a wonderful outlook on life.

NellieVaughn said...

I see beautiful women everywhere I look, and I wonder why God didn't make handsome men for all the beautiful women.

Paula Wooters said...

It's a truly a lovely man who can see beautiful women wherever he looks. (Either that or he's damned horny.)
