Rafael

At Ojo, our waiter's name was Rafael. I mentioned to Jason that I always liked that name but this particular Rafael didn't fit the Rafael I had pictured in my brain.....so of course Jason asked...and our conversation went a little like this:

Me: Well, he's tall, has longish dark wavy hair, piercing black eyes, chiseled features, muscular torso. He's not wearing a shirt and the top button is undone on his jeans.

Jason: Hmmm, you put a lot of thought into this.

Me: Well, I would never marry him honey....he's not as smart as you!

Jason: Is that why his top button is undone? He can't figure out how to button it?

Me: And he'd never make me laugh like you can either.

There's no underestimating the value of a man who makes you laugh, is there. He sounds sweet; you're a good pair.

thanks...we both enjoy making each other laugh...and now with the kiddos we're all laughing all the time...

And another reason you'd not marry this Rafael: he'd have only eyes for Jason.

*at least you pretty much described the only Rafael that I know and he plays for the other team.
*did you know my BIL's name is Rafael? I guess it's only fair if my husband rides Maria, you get to have a fantasy fling with Rafael...and neither situation keeps me up with worry.

Funny! You two are cute. We spent our first wedding anniversary in Sante Fe and had a fabulous time. Your pictures brought up great memories.

Martha said...

Tracey...my name? It's Martha...
Dom's brother...his name is Rafael.

Doesn't it seem to fit the pattern: you've got a Domingo, and Ana, along comes baby #3...why go traditional at that point...so out came Rafael followed with #4 Carlos.
Yep, all four of those kids have some 'splaining to do when folks hear their names.

martha..duh....ok, i thought BIL (and now it makes sense) was some military name for nick name...like my brother's is MEZ but maybe that's just a pilot thing? rolling my eyes at myself right now...

anymommy....love santa fe too...i would love to go back...

Have you seen the movie Zoolander? You should if you haven't!

Even "Rafeal's" will eventually bald and gain weight. I have a feeling men that care that much about their looks would spend more time in the bathroom than me and that would just not work well with me. LOL!!

Funny man. I would've said how big is his stomach?

Rafael... The only Rafael I ever knew looked quite a bit different. But I like your version!

The way I see it, the muscular torso only lasts so long, but a sence of humor lasts forever. (At least that's what I'm banking on...)
