Odelia is a middle-aged, overweight paralegal who specializes in corporate and business law. Hmm, who else do we know who fits that description? Oh yeah … me! She dislikes okra. Same here. Loves most animals, especially cats. Yeppers to that, too. She adores Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. Here I am, raising my hand high.
Whenever I’m asked what the differences are between us, the reply is easy. Odelia dresses better and swears less. Trust me on this. It’s true. And she’s married. Other than that, we’re pretty much cut from the same cloth.
Even when it comes to crushes, Odelia and I are on the same page. We both swoon over the actor Alan Rickman. Rickman first came to my attention in the 1990 film Truly Madly Deeply, and even after all these years, he still tops my list of men I’d do in a hot minute. Even after Odelia married Greg Stevens, she still had a thing for Rickman.
I’m sure if Odelia and I spent some time on the couch, we might get to the root of that predilection.
