I rarely watch tennis because I prefer to play. Last night was the men's final at the US Open and while I hadn't planned it, I did watch the match. Juan Martin del Potro played Roger Federer. Del Potro is from Argentina and quite a lovely specimen. Unbelievably del Potro came back from losing the first set and being down in the second set to win.
While watching, I was also twittering and pulling for del Potro. Roger is a great guy and all but come on. He hasn't lost a match in years. So del Potro, in reality the person pretending to be del Potro, started following me on twitter. The real del Potro I found out sadly is @delpo
I ran upstairs to tell my husband. about my new follower. "Del Potro is following me. He's following me," I said.
"He's not really your type," my husband said. "With the facial hair and all."
Honestly, I could overcome my aversion to facial hair with JMDP.
To allay his fears that I might run off with Juan Martin, I said, "You don't have to worry."
He said, "I'm not."
My husband has a thing for those old school girls like Angie Dickinson and Barbara Eden.
So I said, "Hey maybe Angie Dickinson will follow you."
He said, "Isn't she dead?"
