Musings From A Musical Mind

Two different Species…

Kid’s sayings on Love, Dating and Marriage:

Love is like an avalanche where you have to run for your life

John age 9

I think you’re supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn’t supposed to be so painful

Manuel age 8

Once I’m done with kindergarten, I’m going to find me a wife

Tom age 5

Most men are brainless, so you might have to try more than once to find a live one

Angie age 10

Shake your hips and hope for the best

Camille age 9

Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other.  Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough

Lynnette age 8

Don’t forget your wife’s name.  That will mess up the love

Erin age 8

Be a good kisser.  It might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash

Erin age 8

Well it finally happened.  My dear husband and I had a little – shall we say – “snit”?  Yes – even us.  I know what you’re thinking – how could something “mess up” the love?  But it does happen occasionally – even to us.

I am still expecting him to really get me – after all these years together – and most times he’s pretty good – and then….it happens.  And I realize, sadly – that he DOESN’T.

So we’re in the middle of something last night and everything seemed fine  TO HIM – until – I just suddenly burst into tears.  Now of course he was perplexed and concerned (mostly for himself) wondering how in the world something so out of the ordinary could take place!  Now for me – it was gradually building up inside of me – slowly – slowly – festering and becoming bigger and BIGGER – until…I couldn’t hold it in anymore!!

Well of course he then inquires – (like a dumb guy) “What’s wrong”?  And I of course answered in the most predictable way possible – “Nothing”.  And I’m thinking to myself, “if he doesn’t know what’s wrong – I’m NOT going to tell him!”  and also thinking, “he doesn’t really GET IT at all – does he????”  *sniff sniff*

And you’re thinking – that’s hilarious – that would NEVER happen at MY house!  But I bet it does.  In ways that are very similar.  I’m starting to think that no matter how long I live with this man – he will never really understand me – and my way of thinking.  I know he’s exasperated   and will occassionally say, “Do you HAVE to be so…..FEMALE”??  Yes.  I do.  That’s what I am.

And to that I say, “Do you have to ACT SO DUMB”??  And he will say, “It’s NOT an act”  Dumb is a default setting for most guys – and Greg openly admits this.  Just when he thinks he has it ALL figured out – he realizes that he didn’t account for things like – mood – emotion – stressed out day – worry or fatigue.  And then let’s NOT forget about “that time of the month” that all men EVERYWHERE just DREAD.  It can bring a  grown man to his knees – where there is weeping and wailing involved.  He gladly “heads for the hills” – not to be found for about a WEEK.  And he is so RELIEVED when he isn’t the one in trouble – but walks very softly around the house after that.

And so – this is the mystery of love – and the agony.  It is two completely different species trying to live together in perfect harmony.  It is what makes the world go ’round.  It is – in fact…..Love.

I wish you and yours a day and evening of understanding.  Good Luck.

God Bless
