Whenever I read your nice posts about Potemkin I imagine him blushing and thinking 'How am I supposed to respond?!'. It makes me smile every time. Anyway, good luck with overcoming the British reserve.
I tell you Kaiser, I am puzzled by how Potemkin acts. I think there is a cultural divide. I truly do! He talks about women in Scotland throwing up from too much drinking in Scotland. Women with no charm and no 'joie de vie'. What kind of 'locas' do they have in Scotland? Someone like Potemkin would have been swarmed with totally beautiful women in Puerto Rico! I had strictly intellectual friendships with a couple of brilliant Puerto Rican men in other websites in Spanish specifically about Puerto Rican politics. All of them had too many women in their life. Haha! True. And these Scottish brilliant, gorgeous men like Potemkin here that I have been reading for YEARS---have been relegated to throw up in taxis and semi conscious superficial crap relationships?
I think it is hard for someone like Potemkin in Scotland. He is not a mainstream man by any stretch of the imagination. And I think he lives alone. He has reached a certain age where the pickings are getting slim. Or maybe he doesn't want too much complication. I don't know. All I know is that PoFo has retained him. Despite so many other brilliant communists who used to post here have moved on. I think he cares about this website. And he is attached to his writings. I know he is!!
What a sweet, delicious creature he is Kaiser!! In all ways. But I bet he doesn't believe so. He thinks he is jaded and a little cynical in certain ways. The truth? He is not. Young and vital and boyish down to his soul....such a naturally beautiful soul!
I am starting to think the Scottish culture is not big on emotion....whether highlander or lowlander....the Scottish don't trust flattery. They see it as suspicious I am sure. For my culture Kaiser? It is not about flattery ever. It is about letting people know how you feel about them. We as Ricans live for today above all else. And for us? Letting those we love and care for and admire and feel enthusiastic and passionate about? It is our obligation to never leave them in ignorance of the fact.
It is one of the most beautiful aspects of boricua culture in my opinion. Good night Kaiser! You rascally woman wanting to see Potemkin blush! I wish I could kiss the man. He is quite kissable.
