My Date with Bernie Sanders

My Dear Sillies,
I hope this finds you well.
Thanks to a generous friend, who set me up with my dream man, I had a date last week...
Here we are, me and Bernie Sanders (Action Figure) pressing up against my chin flab - we'll call it some form of necking. Yet Bernie was a perfect gentleman.

He didn't drink, couldn't reach the straw.
Below: If anyone knows how to manage a lemon, it's my Bernie.
And the highlight of the evening: Bernie picked up the check. Such a gentleman, my Bernie!

Bernie Sanders, my (and his wife's and some of the world's, but most importantly my) love, still fighting the good fight. #ForeverBernieSanders #Resisttheorangemofo

  1. He was indeed the perfect gentleman. I hope your next date is a little less so (in the very best way).

    1. I hope so too, EC, and that he also picks up the check. Thank you, friend.

    1. It's a striking resemblance, replete with bald spot too - way better than the Elizabeth Warren or Hilary Clinton action figures.

  3. That's probably one of the best dates you've had in a while. Bet he didn't go on and on about his last girlfriend, either.

    1. He didn't complain at all, Alex - not even after I accidentally knocked him over (three times).

  4. I was confused because I know Bernie is married, but I guess I'm "old school."

    1. We leave old, young, and middle school at the door around here and crank up the sillies. Shirley, I mean Stephen, you must know that by now. ? =)

  5. And you didn't have to deal with any dogs, literal or not, sure a win all around.

    1. No dogs or flat-faced dog lovers, just me and my Bernie - a purrfect gentleman.

  7. What a perfect date, took you out for dinner, he paid and you didn't have to ask all about him and listen to him feigning keen interest

    1. Oh no, no feigning, Birgit. The chemistry between us was real.

  9. Stay tune for my Barbie... but don't hold your breath, cause it won't happen!

    1. Oh, what a disappointment - for Barbie. But good for you, Sage. (Rumour has it, she's free and easy. You could do better - e.g., Wonder Woman.)

  10. Plus he fits in your pocket and you can pull him out any time you need him.

    1. Yes, I can take him with me everywhere I go. He's loyal and never makes a fuss. Sigh. =)

  11. He couldn't have a better girlfriend than you, Robyn! Who else would massage his head with her chin? And prevent the kitty from toying with him?

    1. I WILL take good care of my Bernie, GB. Thank you for acknowledging that.

  12. Bernie! You made our girl so happy. I bet you didn't call her shorty, either.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. He said nothing offensive, my little tiny Bernie.
      Love.

  13. That's one of the best action figures I've ever seen, though his hair was a tad too under control. Then again he was on a date with you - no doubt recognized the significance. Beyond awesome post and yes, anything but the orange mo fo.......holy crap - did I ever think it would be this crazy? Seriously, no. Take care, my friend.

    1. We were all hoping it wouldn't be as bad as we thought it'd be. Yet it's so much worse. At least, much of the world agrees.
      Thank you, Joanne. Take good care of yourself too.

  15. From all I have read about your dates this would seem to be one of your best. While Bernie doesn't appear to be much of a conversationalist he appears to be very easy to get along with and a perfect gentleman, indeed.

    1. I have no complaints, Jono, and that's a rarity.

  18. Oh my gosh! Robyn, this post has me in tears. No lie. I wish I wasn't wearing mascara because it's getting in my eyes and making them all blurry. Whew! Chin flab - some form of necking. Whew! You're too much. So funny. I can't stop laughing. I love you so much! Thank you for this!!

  19. You've found Mr. Right! Bernie is your dream mystery date! You're probably too young to remember that old board game, but this post made me think of it for some reason. :) So funny.
