The simple way to do this is to choose 3 words to describe him or her.
The complex way is to write a 300 page biography.
The artsy way is to write a poem.
And the Grumo way is to invent a new genre called the “spontaneous chorizo stream of consciousness prose”.
It’s fun, it’s unique and a lot easier. All you have to do is spend 10 minutes writing the first thing that comes to mind when you think of that special person.
A while ago I did that to describe my wife, Beth.
Here is what flowed out of my neurons…
Beth is a nocturnal free dancing spirit living in a beer bottle made of semi transparent indulgence.
Her long body, fluorescent white skin, small green eyes, sensual smile and strong yet feminine jaw are all majestic in a Renaissance kind of way.
As the night unfolds, this cosmopolitan princess transforms into an abstract mixture of nonsensical words and gestures which only seem to gain a seducing sinuous coherence when entranced by their musical muse.
Once on the dance floor, Beth becomes a mesmerizing queen oblivious to the lusty gazes of suitors hoping to conquer a bit of her queendom.
In the morning, and only after a due dose of caffeine, Beth will struggle to be her elegant self again and blend into the land of the living. Yet, even when immersed in her daily routine, she won’t be able to stop herself from daydreaming about cute baby elephants, adorable fluffy kittens, and baby orangutans which she would love forever and ever.
If only proven by her addiction to cheesy romance TV, mindless Internet games and of course lots and lots of chocolate, Beth perfectly embodies what could only be defined as modern hedonistic royalty.
Her competitive nature makes winning another of her addictions be it games, sports, or arguments. Although sometimes her desire to win can get the better of her, it’s that same competitiveness that motivates her to perfect her passions, being one of them running.
Running is the healthier counterpart of Beth’s struggle to clear her mind from the weight of the past and frustration of her present…
[…Bzzz Whirrr Bzzz.. this part of Beth’s definition has been lost.. or censured by marriage saving leprechauns]
[…3, 2, 1.. Resuming transmission..]
…Finally, another day is about to give its ghost and as hot water fills up the tub, now she just looks forward to simmer in her fantasies with a good old book in hand.
And now it’s your turn…
How would you define someone you love the Grumo way, or the… You way?
Peace, Love, and Cookies,
P.S.: This exercise is designed to force you to think about someone you love. If writing is not your cup of tea then just close your eyes and try to remember 3 happy moments you shared with this person and then… tell him or her about them!
