      • My initial reaction was that obviously Belloc had a brain beneath his physical beauty, but the fact that I’m commenting about a man that I knew 25 years ago indicates that there must have been more there than I thought!

      • Ha, nice. I wish that there was a man from my past with Belloc’s particular looks. Of course, if phantom boyfriend lacked a brain I would have sent him to the curb. You are correct: your ex must have had something else going for him, too.
