Steve Martin did an SNL skit years ago, declaring a poetic-ish ode to the woman in his life.
Oh what a wise man indeed. He interprets what love is about in such an eloquent way, I couldn't help but share it. So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, Steve Martin.
"Ode to My Woman
When a man meets the woman he loves, everything changes. His heart races, his head spins, and suddenly all the dozens and dozens of women he's sleeping with no longer matter. A few years ago, I found the woman I love, and I've put some of my feelings into this little ode.
Every man needs a woman, and I need you -- to lift me when I am sad, to comfort me when I am down, to clean me when I am drunk, to walk beside me when I want to look like I'm not gay, to walk in front of me when I need someone to act as a human windbreak, to kiss me when I am horny, to massage me when I am tense and/or horny, to make me horny when I am not horny, and then to watch me fall asleep.
I need you darling to clean between my toes when they are not cleaned to my satisfaction, to pick the nits out of my hair when I have head lice, to try milk for me when I am not sure of the expiration date, to be there when I need you to be there, and to be out of town the rest of the time.
My darling, although it may seem sentimental, I want to take this moment to tell you I love you -- because I don't want to lose half my stuff. And even though you are far away across the ocean, I always have this [pointing to ring finger where there is no wedding ring] to remind me --[realizes the ring is not there] sorry [and hides hand].
