49. THANK YOU!!!!!!

ENOUGH with the “MUST be immaculately perfect” stuff.

There is no “perfect.” Nowhere in humankind. Why is that so difficult to accept? I can think of countless people of both genders who are still looking for “perfect.” And they will never find it. Because it just isn’t there.

I’m always reminded of that Lee Remick line in the movie “The Competition.” It was a film awhile back, also starring the then-young Richard Dreyfuss and Amy Irving as competitors in an international piano competition. Lee Remick played Amy Irving’s piano teacher/mentor. Spoiler alert: Irving and Dreyfuss fall in love. Irving then beats presumed favorite Dreyfuss in the competition. Angst ensues about whether their love affair is now ruined, and at the victory party, winner Irving mopes all alone in a side room. Remick enters the room to snap her out of it, telling her prize student: “it’s going to take another 100 years for Nature to evolve the kind of man you have in mind. So get out there and dance with what there IS!”
