I Believe...

(The Divorce Edition, topic courtesy of Mr. Hall)

...There is no such thing as "The One" when it comes to relationships. There are people you are compatible with and people you are not. "The One" is the one you choose to commit to.

...Women are more freaked out about marriage than men are. In spite of what sitcoms and lame Matthew McConaughey comedies tell you, men are more amenable when it comes to building a partnership with a woman. Women fear losing their identity, becoming a housewife, being held back. Most men want the woman they fell in love with, don't want a housewife and want to see their partner succeed.

...I remember in my late 20's-early 30's noticing that I knew a lot of people who had already been married and divorced. Many with kids. Now, I know a lot of people who have been married and divorced twice with a few more kids thrown into the mix. I find dating expensive. You guys must all be fucking broke!

- Anybody want to buy a ring? Seriously. Make me an offer. No takers and I hit the diamond district on Thursday.


Yesterday, I asked...

"Students in Harrold, Texas will be the first in the nation to have teachers legally doing what this year?"

27% said "monitoring their e-mails and text messages"
- No child's privacy left behind.

9% said "sending troublemakers to school jail"
- That's called detention.

9% said "dating seniors"
- Some teachers can't wait that long.

54% got it right with "carrying guns"

According to The Associated Press, along with normal first-day jitters and excitement, students in this tiny district (Harrold, Texas) started school Monday wondering which teachers might be toting firearms. Several parents said they had no idea that employees of the K-12 school were allowed to carry concealed guns on campus until recent publicity about the school board's policy, approved quietly last fall.

Match class should be fun...

I know what you're thinking. "Did he take away six apples or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. You've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, Bueller?
