Punching Your Weight

John and his wife have convinced me to meet a woman tomorrow. She’s a hairstylist who cuts the family’s hair. So while John’s getting his haircut I’m going to meet her. And if that isn’t odd enough, John thinks she’s the prettiest of all the women I’ve showed interest in. (I actually haven’t showed interest in her. We’ve never met keep in mind.) Now I mention this to my new boss at work tonight and he tells me something that struck me in a funny way.
“One thing I’ve learned: you gotta punch your weight.”
I laughed so hard at that. It tickled me, as anything does, because it’s true. You can’t date someone that you perceive to be prettier than yourself. You just can’t.
