Well, I can say with absolute certainty that it reared its shimmering head with the hilarious, unholy union of Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly on “Match Game”, for whom I would race home after school every day to wistfully watch. From them, I learned the genius that true love could be.
And then, it all exploded into ten thousand sequinned suns with the even UNHOLIER union of myself and my GLORIOUS, GLAMOROUS Gusband, Miss Jackie Beat, several decades later.
But, for me, a lifetime of longing for the company of my other FABULOUS HALF started here, in my childhood, in a book…in a snowy wood under a magical lamp post…with Lucy Pevensie and Mr. Tumnus, the most elegant, delightful, “Confirmed Bachelor” in all of Narnia.
This is where it all began.
