Everyone in my neighbourhood is having trouble with their lawn. The grass is either being eaten by grubs, or overrun by dandelions, or just plain dying.
I won’t spray my grass. I don’t care how many dandelions I get. I just think, why are we fighting it? We want our yards to look nice – I get that. But to have this huge expanse of green perfection, it’s almost like we are going against nature by trying to keep it that way. Is there some sort of standard that people are supposed to have lawns? Who made that rule?
It’s kind of the way I see relationships. For me, it’s less about control, and more about figuring out ways of allowing what is to exist. I love this quote from Jada Pinkett Smith. I think her and Will probably have a marriage much like my husband and I do.
Note: what I am about to say will be a little out there for many of you readers, but if I’m anything, I’m sarcastic, liberal, and honest. You don’t have to agree with me. This is just my opinion.
Now, go read my article over at Huffington Post entitled “Breaking All The Rules: A New Way Of Thinking About Marriage“. You can comment/slay me here or there. Either way, I’ll answer back. I was a philosophy major remember? I like discussion and debate.
Lots of food for thought this Saturday. Have a great day everybody!
And if you don’t know who Dan Savage is, you will find out in this next article. It’s a bit long, but wonderfully done. Well worth the read.
OK, relax Mom, and all her friends. I am not getting a divorce. This is supposed to be a funny piece. I tend to be very sarcastic. You raised me. You should know that by now.
I am on Generation Fabulous today talking about king-sized beds and how wanting one would could potentially mean I’m headed for divorce. The article is aptly entitled “Does Wanting a King-Sized Bed Mean That My Husband and I Are Headed For Divorce?” God, I hope not. Check it out.
