Is it just me, or does North America feel a bit, um, hotter these days? With this week’s election of Justin Trudeau as Canada’s new prime minister, the leaders of the free world that happen to reside in North America make my heart beat just a little faster. Not to be crass, but damn, they are some fine looking politicians.
As the busy mother of two young sons, I work from home and have taken to soft pants more days than I care to admit. Most of my verbal interactions are with children under age six or the occasional cashier. Long story short, my best flirting days are probably behind me.
But just because I am firmly entrenched in middle adulthood does not make me blind. Or impervious to the charms of handsome, powerful men that just happen to lead the nations of Canada, America, and Mexico. We’re talking some heavy political slam, bam, thank you, ma’am here.
I mean, come on. If there was a Tiger Beat magazine equivalent for middle aged liberal moms, these three would be fighting for both cover and centerfold space. Swoon with a capital “S,” my friends.
Sigh. Yes, I can be a political wonk. Smart men are my jam. Smart men with charisma and power? Yes, please. Barack Obama, Enrique Pena Nieto, and Trudeau all fit that bill. Politics aside, we can agree that these are three exceptionally attractive cool cats, right? Cool cats that just happen, ahem, to lead their North American countries.
I have to laugh because just a week or so ago I got invited to go to a Chippendale’s performance with some other bloggers. Um, no. I politely declined, truthfully admitting that huge, muscular Hulk like men did nothing for me. Nada. Not a thing.
And then, today, when I put two and two together and realized that this trifecta of manly perfection was leading both the country I live in, then the countries directly north and south of me, well, now that held my interest. I am fairly certain that if these three gents were doing a one night appearance at Chippendale’s, I might not be so quick to decline.
Yes, gentlemen, talk politics to me. I’m listening.
