Reasons I like Richard Loomis

Have you ever seen "Sybil" with Sally Field?  I have.  Over 100 times.  Psychology 1 classes end with a viewing of the movie describing one worman's battle with Dissociative Identity Disorder from the 1970's.  I have actually uncovered some previously unknown facts about the real life Sybil, but that's besides the point.  If you've watched the movie with me, you'll like this list.  These are the reasons I admire Richard Loomis from the movie.

1. He’s a firm disciplinarian and caring single father

2. He makes lots of tax free money

3. He has a horse, and is not afraid to use it to get the ladies

4. He owns has an autographed picture of Lawrence Welk

5. He doesn't mind walking on dates (through seedy parts of town nonetheless)

6. How quick his shirt comes off given the right opportunity

7. How he can make his wife's death cute and touching at the same time

8. His persistence (some may call it stalking)

9. How he wears a sports coat with no shirt underneath and makes it look natural and awesome

10. He makes "mind if I undress" sound like a smooth line

11. He can make anyplace romantic by saying, “it’s New York..nobody cares”

12. his musical abilities (Juilliard trained)

His showmanship

He can walk on his hands

14. Judging by his make-up choice while performing, he’s probably not afraid of clowns.

15. He has a habit of reminding people he dates that he's a congenial liar thereby setting up future lies

16. His gymnastic abilities

17. Makes hot dogs and beef sandwiches seem more romantic yet less creepy than they are as date foods

18. He takes things from woman to get them to talk to him

19. He makes stalking seem not so creepy

20. A date ending in the phrase “burning kisses” doesn’t deter him (what did I do?)

21. He can make "sometimes its nice to be quiet for a change", sound good

22. His colorful patches on his jeans (inability to let go of damaged things, which is a good quality if you know what I mean)

23. He wears a top hat when necessary (and looks good in it)

24. He saves lives

25. He uses his ex-wife's death to get closer to other women
