Am I the only one who looks back in the past and think, “what if”? I have quite a few what ifs in my past. I am sure we all do. Of course, we cannot go back and change what has already happened, but we can change how we look at the future. A little while ago, I decided to venture out more. No, not jumping out of planes. For the most part though, I have become a yes man. Just like the movie starring Jim Carrey. I now will say yes to things that in the past, was outside my comfort zone. So why do I bring this up? I am glad you asked, because a couple months ago something totally out of the box happened. I usually get a few emails every month commenting on my articles, and I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to write me. One email in particular did not comment on my article. This email was inviting me to be a part of a Gala. Not just any Gala, it was a fundraiser for a great cause. I was very honored to even be considered for this, and at first I was thinking should I or shouldn’t I. Then I remembered I am a yes man, and agreed to do it. The event was put on by the SISCV, which stands for Soroptimist International of Santa Clarita. They called it Gentlemen for a Cause, because they were actually auctioning off gentlemen for different things. Most guys were giving eight hours of work for free. There was a painter, dentist, plumber, personal trainer, guitar lessons, etc., and of course me. I was offering a date night at the Odyssey. I arrived at the Gala ready to go, and anyone who knows me, knew that it just would not go smoothly. Of course I wasn’t there five minutes, when I sat at a table with a couple nice ladies. Then one got up and introduced her self, and as I got up and reached over to shake her hand, I knocked over a margarita right into her lap. Yeah, that was pretty smooth. She could not have been nicer about it, and I could not apologize enough. Now that I got that out of the way it was time for the auction. Women were bidding feverishly, and then it was my turn. I was really nervous, and when it was over, a very nice lady had won the date with me. I have to say the date at the Odyssey was one of the best.
