Some random chick I wish I knew

a funny thing happened to me while in college.

i started dating a girl named rachel. no big deal. we dated. and it ended.

so i started dating another girl named rachel. not on purpose either. just happened.

there were other girls i dated. other girls i knew. elaine, erin, and deleese stand out in my memory. but there was always a rachel hanging around.

then i joined the navy, and the rachel thing looked like it was done. i just didn’t know any.

’til i got to spain. i was a little sweet on an irish girl named rachel. i have pictures of her packed that i’d post for y’all, but you have to wait.

but she had to go home on bad circumstances. so ‘rachel’ left.

oh but not so fast! i started dating an english girl named ….. rachel. then she moved to hawaii. so i dated another irish girl named rachel.

it was a veritable rachel fiesta.

they were everywhere!

sure there were toher girls in spain, mari angeles, kelly, and ally, but….

it got sooo bad ……

Rachel Weisz

we used to take a road trip every now and again, and one of our favorite spots to visit was a little town called torremolinos on the costa del sol. just south of malaga.

nice place.

this rachel thing got so bad, and to tell y’all the truth, i had never noticed it until this point, that we were out drinking, and met a large group of brit chicks.

they were running through their names. emma, claire …. blah, blah, blah, rachel.

and my friends just laughed and said, there ya go mlah.

and the bad thing is, we hit it off.

Some random pic I found

i worked with a girl named rachael in maryland that i was a little sweet on. just wasn’t to be though. but again. rachel!

the girl who did my site is rachel. i read rachel lucas all of the time.

yeah i read others too.

this name just keeps popping up though.

everytime i meet a girl named rachel, i always look at her a little sideways now.

i guess i’m rachel shy.

i worked out with a couple of gorgeous girls named rachel in crofton. way too young. but gorgeous nonetheless. and my friends who knew, teased me all the same.

rachels, rachels everywhere!.

so here’s why i thought about blogging this.

i’ve been in san antonio for almost a month now.

no rachels!

what gives?


  1. You just got there!!! Geez, give it a week or two, amigo!!! You’ll be sippin’ a margarita, and some Rachel will pop on by and mess up your world. Just give it time…

    Man, it’s like you can’t wait to have your world all hosed up again….


    But at least there’s only one Madame!!!!

  3. You forgot to add Rochelle to the list of those you knew in the Navy……of course, maybe that’s because of her SEAL boyfriend?
