Back in the late 60’s my Great Great Grandmother Heloise worked as an Official Muscle Inspector for the state of California. She met and examined an ample array of shiny and musclebound men along the state’s most popular beaches, including a then unknown Arnold Schwarzenegger who so impressed her with his smooth-talking witty banter that she quit her job to become his full time campaign manager and live-in Bohemian lover.
The affair was short-lived however when Heloise, bless her heart, turned up her hearing aid and realized what she thought was witty banter from Arnold was not and that she “couldn’t understand a damn thing he was saying.”
Poor Arnold, his heart broken, then sought the bright lights and cheap tawdriness of Hollywood and the rest as they say is history.
I can’t help but think that Heloise may have sparked something in Arnold that led to his interest in Politics and him eventually becoming Governor. I know he took the breakup hard. He was quoted very recently in a “Rolling Stone” article that she “was his first and only real love and that he would get back with her in a heartbeat.”
The magazine tried to reach Heloise, who is now 108 and living in Boca Raton but she had no comment.
Ahhhh such is love and life…
