Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Willy Dunne Wooters and I were watching a very romantic movie last night: Don Juan De Marco (and yes, Willy Dunne Wooters took off his shirt and looked exactly the way he does in the above photo). Don Juan De Marco stars Johnny Depp as a young man who believes he is Don Juan. He ends up in a mental hospital, and changes his psychiatrist's (Marlon Brando's) life.
Since our Don Juan was speaking with a Spanish accent, I crooked my index finger at Willy Dunne Wooters and motioned to him to move closer to me. Then I whispered in his ear, Te amo. Te quiero. (I love you. I want you.)
Willy Dunne Wooters' sweet little playful smile spread across his face and he said, That's kinda sexy.
Suddenly I realized I had discovered a new way to make Willy Dunne Wooters happy: He loves it when I speak in languages other than English, and it doesn't matter if he doesn't know what I'm saying.
I can ask him, Ou est la banque? (French for Where is the bank?), and that I'm-so-in-love-that-I'm totally captivated look suddenly shows up in Willy Dunne Wooters' beautiful blue/green eyes. He could melt butter with that gaze.
I ran out of French pretty quickly, so Merde! I told him (will not translate, but if you look it up you'll know why it's silly). I'll probably use Spanish to keep his interest, with, perhaps, a little Italian mixed in.
This morning I said, Mi espanol es muy excellente. His eyes drooped to half-mast and he grabbed me for a passionate kiss. I'm so glad I've learned yet another way to make my Willy Dunne Wooters happy–and perhaps discovered a method to control him just a little bit.
Oh, Willy Dunne Wooters, you are so thoughtful. You were especially sweet when you told me how beautiful my Christmas decorations are. And I'm so glad you liked the mashed potatoes with Thanksgiving dinner.
It was a good weekend, Willy Dunne Wooters. Je t'aime. (Uh-oh. Can you drive home with that extra stick shift?)
Don't we look good together?
