Love on Hubpages

Didn't you get my e-mail?
Didn't you get my e-mail?

One of the things for which I have come to be grateful to Hubpages, is the opportunity to meet so many different NICE people from different backgrounds who force one to raise one’s appreciation of our species. I have met here so many intelligent, kind, talented and wonderful people whose behaviour and ideas have forced me to raise my appreciation of our common humanity and increased my hope for the future.

To the inevitable and innumerable merchants may I just mention in passing that though there is not an ounce of conceit in our composition, the De Greeks generally wear size 8 hats and this is necessary to accommodate their huge brains? In fact a Spartan helmet found in an ancestor’s tomb recently, had the number 8¼ clearly stamped on the inside rim. So when you become fans and out of courtesy we visit your site in reciprocity, headings like “How to Buy Used Tin Cans” tend to stump us. We look for something that will allow us to comment genuinely and impartially. If we do not find anything, which is often, we quietly move on without making a comment. If we do find something that is in any way acceptable, we try to make a courteous comment as a gesture of reciprocal appreciation for your trouble to visit us and become “fans”. However, we know that the true merchants will rarely if ever make the effort to visit us again. They have left their advertising leaflet on our site and they are on the way to pastures new.

But the behaviour of the merchants makes the kind and supportive behaviour of the genuine people so much more powerful and so much more appreciated.

Gypsy Willow and Lee B. with their kindness, lisadpreston and sunflowerbucky with their enthusiasm, Zsuzsy Bee with her knowledge, _cheryl_ with her surprise that she found something she liked, the gifted Nellieanna with her intelligence and her modesty, Feline Prophet with her deep knowledge, ladyjane1 with her eloquence, Joy At Home with her many skills, JamaGenee with her enviable subtle humour, habee with her flattery, IzzyM taking time off her business to offer support, akirchner with her humour, the more recent msorensson. Shalini Kagal with her ability to see the most carefully disguised humour, and others who are more recent and might be embarrassed with my emotional Mediterranean reaction until they get to know me better.

I have deliberately left the men out of this, because this is a story of Love on Hubpages and I value their friendship too much to risk it by including them in this list, even as a joke.

Because I like to read and because I search Hubpages for stories to read which will give me pleasure, I was recently rewarded by coming across the site of Pam Roberson. Her last story, uploaded 13 moths earlier, was titled “Seduction in a Construction Zone” and had me in stitches through her brilliant use of the language.

“he began to undress my car with his eyes. Very slowly, he peeled away every inch of the vehicle until there was nothing left but me and a steering wheel”.

I howled with laughter. I left her a message of admiration and one thing led to another and we are now married.

There are times when even the De Greeks cannot think deeply without having a headache and so in the excitement inseparable from the process of getting married in such a hasty manner, I had unfortunately forgotten to tell my wife and that is where the matter became slightly complicated.

However, I think that I had better let Pam Roberson tell you the facts, here.

I would very much appreciate it if you will leave your comments here about your thoughts on this marriage and any new marriage proposals shall be gratefully received.

You've done it again! How do you manage to get so many odes written about you, DG? Must be that size 8 head! :D

Congratulations on the hasty nuptials anyway...may you be the father of a thousand kids! (That's an ancient Indian blessing by the way....so fitting, don't you think, for one who can trace his origins back to the Spartans? :D)

That Indian blessing is, apparently, taken literally in India! :D

So when do YOU plan to write about me then? :D

Love and peace

@ Tony, one does not want to deprive the womanhood of the world and this is a body that must be shared :D

@ Brother Sabu, why don't you suggest to Pam taht a honeymoon on a donkey might be a good idea? We might be able to utilize our investment! :-D

AND ARE YOU GUYS PLANNING TO GET ME DIVORCED? WHY DID YOU NOT LEAVE A COMMENT ON PAM'S SITE??? :d

You! I adore you!

Is your wife okay with me being a wife? Tell her I don't cook or do windows. Okay? I promise to not take up too much of your time, but I'm getting impatient over the whole honeymoon thing. Also, you two need to work out details about my monthly support. You have discussed that right? ;)

Thank you! :)

Well done!

You're perfect together! It's so cute! Better than a Harlequin Romance! But let's hope the "Honey do's" don't set in too swiftly.

I did read Pam's delightful hub! I love her enthusiasm!!


De Greek profile image

De Greek 6 years ago from UK Author

@ Lorie, what's with goats and piglets? These are women who are worth private islands in teh Med! And I am surprised at you. Poor Pam writes after 13 months and you don't comment on her site for support. I don't love you any more :-)))

@ Shalini = just my youthful innocence!

@ Nellieanna, thank you for your support. I shall judge the seriousness of your comments by teh wedding present :-))

@ BJ you are being your kind self as usual. I am 62 Child! But I can still take a joke, even at my age, at my expense :-) Thank you for your support :-))

@ Lee, I WAS about to say that it's good to see you, but I cannot REALLY see you with that contraption over your face, Child! Thank you for your steady support from the first day of my joining Hubpages :-)

@ Minilady any friend or FP's... :-)) So are you joining her in pulling my leg with all this "legion of fans" stuff? :-)) Thank you anyway :-)

DG you make every greek male proud, knowing that their fellow country man has two wives, can't wait to hear about your first fight being a married couple, it should be a riot and god forbid there should ever be a divorce, they will crush any hub I have written on the subject, hah.


De Greek profile image

De Greek 6 years ago from UK Author

@ Hi Cris ... I thought that you were a Christian too? :-) Thank you for passing by:-)

@ Brother Saddlerider, I am having second thoughts. The bride in this instance just looks too young for someone my age and it feels embarrassing :-)

Petra Vlah 6 years ago from Los Angeles

Knowing that you are a man of impeccable taste and great refinement I had to check out you new bride. To say that is a match made in Haven will only begin to tell the story. The interesting part will be however the enforcement of your previous marital contract and the lawyering skills of the one that unexpectedly became “the other woman”. Keep us posted

Ah my DG. How jealous I am! Now that you are officially a bigamist (or at least a cyber-bigamist) know that I am forever waiting in the wings, panting with fragrant breath for the happy hour when you decide to add another flower to your harem. I have, of course, faithfully obeyed your command and have read the other woman's hub.


De Greek profile image

De Greek 6 years ago from UK Author

Brother Saddlerider, this joke feels as if has gone a bit too far. Come ON now! Everyone knows that other than my wife, there is only Nellieanna and Green Lotus for me!? Surely they can see that it is jus a joke? Oh of course, I forgot msorrensson and Habee, but in the exitement, that's understandable. Naturally, Gypsy Willow with her angelic face and Lee are my favourites, but that is all! Enough already!

I understand you! I have long been trying to find the perfect hub mate. I had a hasty hubmarriage, but he started writing Latin, and that got me lost in the translation. I have nothing against Latin, it's just that I so prefer stories to dictionaries, and told him so. I am clicking back and forth, story to story, yours, Pam's, yours... I am hooked on this marriage, and will live vicariously through your marital success.

Dude: "However, we know that the true merchants will rarely if ever make the effort to visit us again. They have left their advertising leaflet on our site and they are on the way to pastures new."

THat is an F-ing truism if I ever read one. Really, really well put, man. I know that's not the point, but that just stood out as well written.

You know that hub of Pam Roberson's was awesome. I was compelled to write a spoof of it I was so moved, so I totally get why you picked it too. It's good stuff. Speaking of which, hmm, maybe I should spoof this one! Muahahaha!

Oh my heart! Oh my weak, weak, heart! Be still my heaving bossom! My tears flow like a muddy river on a dark, dark night because my eyes are caked with makeup! What shall I ever doooooo??!!

Darling? Can you wear that interesting Croatian helmet that Tatjana mentioned when I Skype you for the honeymoon? Wouldn't that be fun? I'll dress up too. :)

Okay, I have to go to sleep now!


De Greek profile image

De Greek 6 years ago from UK Author

@ Shades, I know that you are intellignet enough to realize by now that I consider you to easily be at the top of this here tree and not only. So your comment here is a pleasure for me and your praise... What can I say? Thank you :-)

@ Lady G, nice to see you here and thank you :-))

@ Pam, you are a De Greek now woman! Learn your place and show a stiff uppoer lip! Did you get the blow up version of me I sent you? I had it specially made at great expense, though why they made my mouth like that I'll nver know. I think there must have been a mix up in the order.


Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 6 years ago from Virginia

Alright, I'll save the melodrama for our more private moments then. What I won't do for you. Yes, I received the lovely blow-up picture of you! How thoughtful of you to have it done in cardboard so that it can stand in such a commanding fashion in a room. It was a bit difficult to get it into the house though--it's so large, and the ceilings aren't quite high enough, but I'm taking care of that. :)

I do hope you've received the DVD I sent you of me singing karaoke at Cousin Boogie's Bar and Grill. What a night that was, and it was my pleasure to sing our special song in Joan Jett fashion. Please try to look past the fact that I nearly choked on a rose as I tried to blow it seductively out of my mouth. Oh, and don't worry about all the chicken wings that are getting thrown in my direction--that's a good thing! Um, and the guy who's dancing with me while I'm singing...the one who appears to be smacking my bottom...he's a special effects dancer and back-up singer. I think you'll love the whole thing! :)

De Greek profile image

De Greek 6 years ago from UK Author

@ Pam, I knew there was a screw up! No, no, no, it was a plastic INFLATABLE me they were supposed to send to you, NOT cardboard! I shall have to get them to send the correct one beofre the first night, otherwise this will not do!

@ FP, I don't know how a civilized, caring person like you can laugh at her friend's misfortunes, I really don't!


Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 6 years ago from Virginia

OH! Well that explains so much! I was contacted this morning by a rather rude gentleman from your country exclaiming that they don't make inflatables in my size. I beg you, sweet muffin, tell this gentleman that my measurements are NOT 63, 62, 63!

@FP, I know you mean no harm, but your fancy words hurt my brain. Now I must go look up the meaning of "farcical." ;)


De Greek profile image

De Greek 6 years ago from UK Author

You are a confused child, Child. The inflatable is supposed to be a copy of my six foot manly figure, which can be easily stored under the bed when an argument takes place and reconciliation is temporarily impossible. When you inflate this, you will be able to put it in the bed next to you and cuddle. Tsk, tsk, I think of everything and I am not appreciated! This is really hurtful!


Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 6 years ago from Virginia

Perhaps I am confused (btw, I don't appreciate you suggesting I'm a confused simpleton in public!), but I could have sworn the man said you ordered one of me for yourself to have on hand for the very purpose you just mentioned. Hmmm. Are you sure you're not confused? Who else would have gotten the numbers reversed? Of course there was that British sailor last week I assisted with directions...perhaps he was dyslexic too?

Oh well! I will await the correct shipment with great anticipation although I'm sure we won't have any arguments!

Petra Vlah 6 years ago from Los Angeles

Dear Greek,

I can’t thank you enough for introducing Pam to me. Now she is competing with you for my favorite hubber and I am having a “hard” time deciding who am I to read first thing in the morning. It is like choosing coffee over cigarettes, (an impossible choice for my vicious and tormented soul). I have to have them both, just like I have to have you and Pam in not specific order, since good things (or not so good) always come in pairs.

You and Pam are the golden pair of Hub Pages and I love you both to pieces!


De Greek profile image

De Greek 6 years ago from UK Author

Whoooooaaaaaaaaaa, Young Petra! I have been through that kind of thing in the past and I have had my fill of it! Just One Mrs De Greek is more than enough for me at this stage of my life! :-))))

So the Greek Lover will chicken out now? You have seduced Pam and you are just about ready to abandon her before the honeymoon is even over?

Why am I not all that surprised? It may have something to do with the Mediterranean clear waters and the reflection of a self adoring soul (LOL big time)

I made my displeasure known in no uncertain terms to Ms. Adorable - yes, that is what I call her in our intimate moments - and I'm sure she will act accordingly.


De Greek profile image

De Greek 6 years ago from UK Author

Your unquestionable jealousy has inspired me to just coin a phrase which goes:

"There is a tide in the affairs of men.

Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune"

(Rather good I thought, especially on the spur of the moment) so I decided to show off by posting it. I don't know how I do it, but thees things just come to me).

Sooooo - You have missed your chance my friend, so eat your heart out!

If that be the case, the De Greeks are men enough to know when to bite the bullet. Oh, the pain, the pain.... Excuse the trembling, but a man will react strangely in moments of intense emotion... I had so many high hope on that dowry, though.... Tsk, tsk, ....

Pam Roberson 6 years ago from Virginia

First, Petra, YOU are my coffee now! You've captured my attention and my heart, and I thank you for the kindest words I've heard. I'm honestly humbled, and I thank De Greek for introducing me to you. :)

De Greek! I cannot believe that such a man of steel would relent so easily! This is very telling!! Not that I want to see a brawl or anything...I'm just saying...I cannot say...my heart...I feel such drama filling my heart and soul!

Christoph! My adorable adorishish one! YES, the key to my heart is rather large, and I hope it hasn't been too cumbersome for you to carry. Thank you for keeping it so shiny. :)
