The Writer's Almanac

From today's poem on The Writer's Almanac, "Unwise Purchases" by George Bilgere, where a man is wondering if there might be a woman out there for him:

a woman who has always dreamed of becoming
the kind of woman the man I've always dreamed of becoming
has always dreamed of meeting.

For some reason that stanza makes me laugh and laugh.
