Sensitive New Age Guy

Okay, time to come clean with y'all - Chrissie already knows this about me (and has known for some time).  In fact, I believe I have already proffered a glimpse of this previously:

I'm a bonafide, card-carryin', dyed-in-the-wool, full-fledged, blue-blooded, Sensitive New Age Guy!  

I'm the companion to Chrissie's "Sap".  You know us as those people who start crying at the first strains of the Hallmark card commercials, or at the end of movies like "You've Got Mail" or "Field of Dreams".  Fortunately for me, I've have cultivated over time the ability to cry like Demi Moore in "Ghost", with those big crocodile tears that gently flow down my cheeks, still leaving me my capacity to see and or speak as necessary.  Chrissie, on the other hand, can quite literally become a sniffling mess (sometimes) where she is left bereft of speech. 

If this idea is still too alien for you to fully comprehend, I'll share lyrics of a Christine Lavin song from her LP, "Attainable Love":

Spoken: Sing along, it will help you with your male bonding kind-of-thing...
