My Major Was Party-ology
In this month’s issue of Playboy, my alma mater, Miami University (commonly referred to as “Miami of Ohio” to distinguish it from Florida’s University of Miami) was named Honorable Mention in rankings of party schools. This leads me to remember why I chose Miami U. My older brother (who had attended both Miami and Ohio State) told me that even though Miami had fewer than one-third as many students as Ohio State (MU 16,000 students; OSU 50,000 students), there were just as many hot women at Miami as there were at Ohio State. He was correct. The only drawback about Miami is that student body was predominately Republican. That didn’t deter me: one woman I went out with told me that Miami U. was a place her Republican father wanted her to attend in order to avoid people like me—-looks as if the joke was on him!
I have gone out with Republican women but I do have standards when it comes to dating and politics. I was at a social event in Santa Monica two years ago and I met a particularly fetching young woman. We hit it off until she told me she was a volunteer for the Green Party candidate who was running against Diane Feinstein. My eyes rolled (I know it was rude, but I just couldn’t help it). She became defensive and asked me why I wasn’t taking her choice seriously. Since I blew any chance with her, I gave her a straight answer: "I have the same chance of being elected to the Senate as your candidate and I’m not even running."
