Dear Uncle.

 I’ve said it over and over again.

I mean, how many times do I have to repeat it?

I have a particular uncle who loves to intervene in my life.

He’s Italian.

He’s also nosy.

They go together.

Let’s just get to the point, he loves to pry in my “relationship status” business.

He tried to hook me up w/ his friend months ago when I politely asked him not to.

Then I get some random email from the guy, like hey, let’s meet up.

Thank goodness our schedules didn’t work out.

I might have made mine not work out ;).

I was/still not looking to be in a relationship.

Do I look desperate?

Dear Uncle, why do you feel the need to ask me my age and then proceed to tell me you need to set me up w/ the exact same guy or any guy for that matter as if I need to be married off tomorrow?

Then I get another email from the guy at the beginning of this week.

Coincidence? I think not.

I don’t even have the heart to write the email back and say thanks for trying, but I don’t need to be my uncle’s project.

K thanks.

Dear Uncle, I’ve done pretty damn well on my own thank you.

I think I can manage.

I’m doing me right now.

While I wish I had the time for a committed relationship, I don’t.

I don’t have the time to worry about some guy that needs me to be there every second of every single day.

I’m headed to nursing school and that is what is on my mind.

If I happen to meet that special man along the way, that’s just peachy too.

I love my single gal nights.

Lately, they have involved chocolate.

Oh what’s that you say my imaginary boyfriend? You don’t like chocolate.

Thank goodness we are not together “for real.”

It’s great not having to worry about what a boyfriend would want for dinner.

It’s also amazing to be able to watch Real Housewives of Whatever I’m Feeling Like

and not get whip-lash while having someone switch back and forth between ESPN and Top Gear.

IMG_3104

Oh, wait…my dad does that.

IMG_3107

Don’t get it twisted.

IMG_3110

I can’t wait for the day I have a boyfriend/husband/whatever to love.

IMG_3113

But that is not tomorrow.

Gaaaaawd I hope he likes chocolate.

    Hello,

    Could I make this with another non-dairy milk, or is the coconut milk a must-have?
