|We met on Friday, he called on Saturday, I had to think about whether or not to call him back and eventually returned his call on Tuesday. Tuesday evening we met up and he took me for a walk and chat on the Vltava riverbank.
He's what we call in Czech an "umělec" [oom-yel-etz], for which there's no direct translation into English - the closest description would be artist/craftsperson. He draws, sculpts, takes photos... y'know, the whole "make a woman swoon" bit...
Conversation was mostly in Czech because my Czech is better than his English, though I give him material to either correct, fill in or lightly make fun of. Among the snippets though...:
Me: "When is your birthday?"
Him: "Third of the second. 3.2"
Me, converting: "Aquarius! Artist." [note to Paula: FUCKING AQUARIUS!!!]
Him: "And mouse, by Chinese calendar."
Me: "Me too! We're the same, same year!"
Him: "And normally, what is your other sign?"
Me: "Leo, lion."
He rolls his eyes and I laugh, asking him what he knows about Leos. His ex-wife was one, apparently. I don't tell him, but my last two relationships were with Aquarians. Say what you want about astrology, but with odds like these there's definitely gotta be something to it.
