Long, Long Ago In A City Far, Far Away
Pittsburgh, a city known for being a hard-edged, bitter-cold, steel town is the birthplace of one of the hottest men in America. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this beholder has had his eyes on this red-bone, guy-next-door for over 12 years. It all started back in 1995 – picture it, a crowded Washington, DC cafeteria, a saucy Puerto Rican twink holding court with the ladies who lunch, and a freckled, svelte and obviously arrogant man who didn’t have the good sense to use the words, “Excuse me…” before interrupting a conversation. What could have been a very disruptive moment was instead a rude awakening of all my senses that captivated my essence. Through the years he has been my heart’s greatest joy and most excruciating pain. Today, he continues to be the man I compare all others to – but most important, he remains my closest friend. He is a man who has been tried in the past few years and has emerged a better person – someone I admire and am proud to call a piece of my soul. Happy birthday Robert. My prayers are that you are blessed with your heart’s desires and that I never know life without you.
