How I Have Changed In The Last 10 years...

I was having my hair done the other day and they had a great assortment of magazines to look at. I learned all about how the "Octomom" lost all her weight, what the best looks for 2010 are, and that Brad and Angelina have been spotted out to eat on several occasions this month. The article said that they have been known to choose a restaurant and get a table in full view of other diners. Reportedly, they spend the night sitting together and talking for hours.
I have always loved Brad Pitt. Not the Brad Pitt with the strange beard that he has been sporting lately - the beautiful Brad Pitt from years ago (picture Legends of The Fall).
My husband knows my feelings about Brad. He is very aware that I used to say that if I were to ever get an offer from Brad Pitt, all bets would be off. Just kidding...
Anyway...I got to thinking that if I were to be at the same restaurant as Brad and Angelina, I would love to go up to them and start a conversation. The thing is, I am a different person than I was a few years ago. Instead of drooling all over Brad Pitt, I would head over to talk to Angelina. I would be very excited to go up to her and tell her all about our adoption. I would tell her how beautiful I think her little girl from Ethiopia is and whip out our little girl's referral picture (yeah, I know...we don't have one yet). I am so happy to say that I have grown to be a woman who is more satisfied talking about the orphans in Ethiopia than simply stalking a good-looking actor.
After all, who needs to fawn all over Brad Pitt when you have a husband who is so loving that he has opened his heart to the idea of adopting an orphan child in order to honor the call that his wife and family have been chosen for?
