Turns out there’s something about guys and music. At least that’s what this article suggests.

Musical ability, along with other creative skills, are rather like a human version of the peacock’s tail; something that has no survival value, but has evolved precisely because it is found attractive by the opposite sex. That’s according to Geoffrey Miller of the University of New Mexico and author of The Mating Mind.

Hmmm. When I saw my future husband the very first time he was giving a lecture on electronic music (or some such thing: sorry, Dan, my mind was elsewhere). There he was … tank top, jeans, headband, long hair … and I leaned over to my friend and said, “What a fox!” (Yeah, I used that word. Really.) She looked at me like I was crazy.

But that was it.

So there you go. I went for the music guy.

On January 3 we celebrated anniversary #32.
