Sentence of the day

From Lance Mannion:

Here she was again, fifteen years older and several thousands of degrees hotter, more proof that women in their late thirties and early forties are the sexiest creatures on the planet, a fact Weeds offers weekly proof of anyway in the persons of Mary-Louise Parker and Elizabeth Perkins, a sad fact of life for men around their age because, unless we are really lucky in the woman we married—lucky being she still enjoys our company and can bear the sight of us naked, and I don’t mean for a good laugh---we can’t enjoy their late blossoming without a messy divorce somewhere in the equation, theirs or our own and the emotional and logistical fallout from one or the other or both, which leaves the field open to younger, handsomer, unattached men sexy and beautiful forty year olds can have, and would rather have, with a snap of their fingers, but nevermind.


Oh, also, I agree. And this makes me want to start watching Weeds.

Hmmm. I'll have to think about this one. I mean, I'd agree that the late 30's early 40's woman is an absolute prize, but Lance seems to romanticize it. Being as I am happily married, I can't say what kind of cougary luck I'd have with the younger set, but methinks it'd wind up being all boot knockin' and less likely looking for the LTR, if the knockin' happened at all. Sometimes 20's boys are scared of the older lady and with good reason.
Mary Louise Parker is a beaut though, and Billy Crudup was a jerk and a half for leaving her pregs and single.

I'm glad you think "women in their late thirties and early forties are the sexiest creatures on the planet" but no messy divorces, OK? Let's just skip that whole part.

Well, mostly I think that's Lance Mannion sucking up to his wife in that post--I just really love that twistedy sentence and the fact that, yeah, women in their 30s are are sexy. Not necessarily all, but also not none.
