You know how girls like guys
that are bad for them?

It happens to me too.

I have an unfortunate penchant
for guys who are

1. smart
2. cantankerous, and
3. haughty about how smart they are

(This is a picture of William Faulkner.
But it seemed to embody those points.)

Set someone like that in front of me,
and I'm sure to swoon.

I like trying to make them laugh.
When you manage,
it's a stamp of approval in the best way.
Like they're saying,
"Not only are you intelligent,
but you're _____ enough 
to break through my crusty exterior."

I'm not sure
what adjective
should go in that blank.
