The Man With The Keys

Every neighborhood/shul/school has one.
Now, he's not to be confused with the man with the blackberry/pager/hatzoloh radio.
This guy is different.  He's much more unobtrusive, despite the fact that swinging pendulously from his belt loop is an astonishing array of keys in all shapes, sizes and colors.
This fellow has the key to EVERYTHING (even the key to bathroom door in your apartment when your two year old accidentally locks himself inside and can't figure out how to get himself out)!
He never takes them off.
He wears them to your children's wedding (even though every door in the wedding hall has a "shabbos combination lock" on the door).
He wears them to HIS childrens' weddings.
Does he really know what every single key in that conglomeration opens?
Do you think he has special belt loops affixed to his pajamas? (I sure hope he doesn't roll over in his sleep.....)

I would like to announce to the blogging community of "dinner" that the man whose hat brim almost caught fire at G6's house due to her artistic use of REAL sconces (and his relatively tall height), has officially proposed marriage to me. And I have officially accepted. So it's all official. I don't really know what happens next but I thought G6 would get a kick out of finding this out on her blog. :-)

Louisa -
Aaaaaaaaaaaah (teenaged girl scream). I'm shocked and SURPRISED!!!
OK, Seriously..... you know how I feel about this fantastic turn in your life.
Heartiest Mazal Tov wishes.
I'm here for you now and always.

I am sending you my daughtersintheparsha resumes, maybe you can find some tall guys, with or without burnt hair

G6 said...

Forget the resumes.... send the girls.
I've got two single guys coming this Friday night... one is a new commenter on this blog.
It wouldn't be the first time a shidduch formulated between the appetizer and the dessert at my table ;)
