Really excited to go after work tonight. A return to the norm at least… a Texas Summer norm. :-)
This goes for men too. You can’t change a man. Any easier than you can make the sun stop shining or the rain stop falling. The sooner women figure that out, the better off they’ll be.
I thought this was really humorous considering the number of men I’ve dated that were six foot and above. ;-)
I, of course, have faced
this problem before.
In dorm bathrooms,
hotels, a friend’s house
here or there,
and I have come to the conclusion
that there is nothing
quite like showering
with a shower head that only
reaches your shoulder blades.
I’d rather not start my morning
by doing a back bend
to wash my hair.
I don’t want to be on my knees
to shampoo up.
But it certainly is a good excuse
for a grown man
to take a bath.
Something yummy to keep you cool in this Texas heat!
Thanks Julie (aka Mommie Cooks) for today’s awesome sorbet recipe!
Hey there! It’s Julie from Mommie Cooks taking over Pinch of Yum for the day. I was thrilled when Lindsay asked me to stop by and share a recipe. I adore her blog and her creative dishes never fail to get my mouth watering. Seriously, this girl knows her way around a kitchen. I’m sure you can agree.
I feel like people come ready made at this stage. I don’t want a man that I’ll want to change, I want one that I’ll love anyway despite whatever annoying/asinine habits he may have.
Because I suppose I feel like if you can change someone, you run the risk of changing some undefinable thing that makes them who they are and I’d never want to run the risk of changing the reason I want them in the first place.
That being said, change isn’t always bad. But people change for a reason. I’m not saying that quitting smoking, doing drugs, being an alcoholic are things you shouldn’t change since they have a rather important impact on your health and safety. I just think that attempting to force someone to change when they don’t want to is just going to lead to a lot of frustration.
Sure small changes and concessions are often made in relationships or friendships out of consideration for the other person, but I see that more as compromise and not change. I view it like they used to tell you in math, every square is a rectangle but not every rectangle is a square. Every compromise can be a change, but not every change is a compromise.
Basically, I don’t want to change someone just as I don’t want to be changed (unless it is for the better). I believe that for someone to change, the internal force is what makes it happen and not external forces.
Just my random thought process. :-)
