Meet Piya (pronounced, Pia).


The second night of the trip, she sat down at our dinner table and though we’d been having fun, everything got a bit more fun. She’s lovely, and refined, with a bit of an edge. For instance, zoom in a bit on that elegant necklace she’s wearing. See what I mean? Those silver things are skulls!

Piya and I were both traveling solo, and we wound up hanging out together a lot. The great thing about her is she’s totally independent, so while we enjoyed each other’s company, there was no pressure to buddy up every second. As a person who craves a lot of time to myself, it worked out just great for me. She was born in India, but she’s lived in London a really long time so she has this cool accent, and a slightly raspy voice. She’s one hot little tamale! 

We spent a couple of evenings singing our hearts out in the piano bar.  Then Piya decided to shake things up a bit and went topless. KIDDING! Strapless dress. Ha, ha! Weird camera angle.


We hung out together on the beach in the Bahamas and visualized the perfect future for me and my family, and the perfect man for her, down to the smallest detail. Circumcised or not? After thoughtful consideration, she has no preference. I had to ask. Just so we’d be clear on what we were attracting for her.


Like Deb whom I mentioned earlier this week, Piya is a life coach, but her specialty is bankers. She loves coaching. Though I’m not a banker, she spontaneously started coaching me! She could not help herself. She had a million incredible ideas for this blog. Look out world! Here I come!


I’m going to pretend the dude in the background of this photo is a guardian angel, for all I know, he’s always at my back like that. Saluting my decisions. Let’s name him. Hmm? He…looks…like…a…

Aside, “Riley, pick a boy name. Any boy name.”


…Johnny. That’s my angel. Johnny. I like it.

 Anyway, back to Piya.

She is an absolute delight. She even got in Abraham’s “hot seat!”

It was awesome.

I love making new friends. Even really photogenic ones.  

I’ve no doubt we’ll be old friends one day.

    Johnny Angel, how I love him…. I believe that’s a 50’s song. You need to share that with Riley.

    How can you not swoon at that song?
