Maybe he’s supporting us. Maybe he’s a smart man who knows how good it is to hang out with a bunch of chicks. Whatever the reason, we want to welcome the first wht male member. And he is not Tyna’s gay roommate nor is he married to me (ahem, even though we’ve made the request – t). He’s Christopher, fondly known in my house as Dr. O. You see, Dr. O is one of my husband’s oldest friends. And many of the stories that I heard about my Hubby growing up in London had Dr. O as a fixture in them. My personal favorite involves Hubby drowning in the Thames River after a particularly rough night as a teen. He was positive he could swim across to the other side and jumped in in his jeans and combat boots. Flash forward 10 minutes to Hubby half way across, thrashing for help realizing he couldn’t make it. And his last vision before he blacked out was Dr. O delicately dipping his toe in the water to see how cold it was to decide if he was going to jump in to save him. Sans that night, my husband says Dr O. always had his back and was (and is) one of the best friends a guy could have.
My personal view of Chris is that he is one of the best chefs I’ve ever met. It’s my hope that we might learn a thing or 2 from him over the years. Because seriously, Christmas dinner at his house (that he cooked himself, course after course and top to bottom) was probably the tastiest I’ve ever had.
So, friend him ladies and welcome him to the group. He’s a brave man to jump in with a bunch of chicks, and with no toe dipping!
