My sister Julie never ceases to amaze me with her taste in men.
She has dated a lot of creeps in her life, and she seems to attract weirdos most of the time.
I think it’s funny how she will never date someone with a white collar job, though. She tends to stay away from guys who are doctors or lawyers or professions like that. Nope, Julie loves hard working men with calluses on their hands. She always dates mechanics, plumbers, farmers, and HVAC technicians. I make fun of her because I always say if she has an appointment at her house for some type of repair or maintenance, she’s actually looking for a date. This all came to a climax last year when her air conditioning system tore up and she called her local HVAC company to schedule a repair appointment. I joked that her knight in shining armor was going to be showing up in an HVAC truck. But little did I know how close to the truth that was! After the guy fixed her air conditioning unit, he asked her out to dinner. She actually ended up dating him for six months and then he asked her to marry him! She laughs about it now, but I always tell him that she only keeps him around to fix her heating and cooling systems in her house. He likes to say that he likes to cool her off and then heat her up again. I think that’s TMI, but he thinks he’s really funny. I guess if she had to marry one of them, the HVAC technician ended up being the best choice for her.
