Hot Monkey Love

Last night there was a whale of a party over at my blog friend Frank's. He wrote a post about marriage; specifically his feelings about it being unnatural for men, and the comments were fast and furious.

Frank has a wife, a fellow blogger named Chele who he loves immensely; in fact they talk to each other in his blog and it's a hoot to witness. These two clearly love each other a lot, they've been married for 14 years and they're hot for each other. I'm betting there's that Hot Monkey Love going on between them. I'm sure we all know what Hot Monkey Love is and if you don't well, I am wishing that you know it before you leave this planet.

Then there's my blog friend, Nick, he's madly in love with his wife, and while she doesn't respond on his blog, I think she reads it. In this post he talks about the difficulties of having a date with his wife. Nick is not as racy as Frank but I detect the old Hot Monkey Love in his marriage as well.

I wanted to write this post to talk about how wonderful I think these men are but also to encourage people about the possibility of finding love and staying there.

I am 49 years old and SO and I just celebrated our 7 year anniversary. I know you can do the math but that means I was 42 years old before I met the person who will most certainly be who I grow old(er) with.

It can be sad and crazy making when you long for a person to make your heart smile, someone you can have Hot Monkey Love with. Once you find them the real work begins. I'd say if you'd rather be bored with them than doing something "exciting" with anyone else, you've got yourself a keeper.
