I also know to put off any surgery in the months ahead because I can expect an enormous VISA bill. The message went on to say that: "I will be visiting Chicago on the 16th or maybe it's the 28th, I can't remember, anyway I thought we could get together for dinner." Right here I know she went to a liberal arts college, has her mas- ters degree in something and is as clueless as he is, ergo compatibili- ty. And this is the part I like the best. In a deep breathless voice, the message goes on to again ask for his phone number. Yes, once again I am in control. Maybe I will erase this message or maybe I will forward it. Bingo, a successful voyage. AROUND TOWN and torn from surviving many shipwrecks will tell you there are two basic qualifications you should look for in a future daugh- ter-in-law. The first is the ability to look at a man wearing an orange striped tie with a yellow checkered shirt and put the fear of God in him by screaming "You are not going out of the house dressed like that, are you!l?" This should bring a smile to any future mother-in-law's face, who herself has spent years training her husband into thinking he could never set foot out the door any morning, without asking "Does this match?" The second qualification in a future daughter-in-law involves the ability of the young woman to look at your son and think of him as a black Angus steer who needs to be fattened up at every waking moment. It is universally accepted by all mothers that once her son leaves home, he will never eat right again and therefore for the rest of his life, he will always be too thin. Some mothers-in-law are reluctant to let go of this even after their son is married. You can spot them bent over and peering into their daughter-in- law's refrigerator and nodding at the lack of visible food. But, armed with these two tenets, you should have a successfulyoyage. It may come as no surprise that I have never met this girl that I have picked out for my son, nor do I know what she looks like either. I was introduced to her on my answering machine. She was a wealth of information; I've always had a special place in my heart for informers when it comes to my children, and she was a mirror image of my son. The message went like this: "Hi, my name is (future candidate) and I'm trying to get the phone number of (my son). I met him when he was in San Diego last month sailing and we had such a great time." At long last, I have found the perfect girl for my bachelor son. Of course, neither my son nor this girl are aware of my insight, but that will be the least of their prob- lems. If you are a mother and your son is not married by a certain age, it is your God-given right to take on this quest. Like the warriors of old in epic poems, you will set out on your ship to scour the seas, turn over every rock, prowl the wretched earth and endure the enemy until you can climb the mast of your ship and shout "Bin- go!" Naturally, the older the child, the longer the epic poem. Now, in their search for the per- fect girl, some mothers make the mistake of getting bogged down in frivolous qualifications such as appearances and personality. This is a huge mistake.
