Away

I think we all know that I have rather… strong opinions about men, right? How real men act, and live, and treat others? What makes them so amazing and so horribly rare?

I’ve had my ipod cranked all morning today, which I don’t often do at work because it distracts me, because I need to drown out someone who will not. shut. up. This song came on, and it’s always funny to me how it says exactly what I’m “looking for” in a man — to the extent that I’m looking, which is to say, not at all — even though it doesn’t really say anything at all.

Maybe it’s just where I want to get myself back to.

I only have half a dozen country songs on my ipod. It’s not my thing. And I know, it’s the Dixie Chicks. My general dislike for the genre and the band (Why, Nathan Petrelli? Why?!) is completely washed by how much I love this song. (Unofficial video linked because Natalie Maines is just odd looking, and even worse in a pink bra.)

    Much easier for a man to find a good woman that fits the job description than the other way around. Men’s needs are simple and don’t change. If Mr Right comes along, you’ll know it right off, because you’ll start out by hating him.

    You do fine on your own, and that’s a very good thing.

    That’s exactly the thing. I can take care of myself just fine — so while I’d love for someone else to take care of me instead, I can’t let anyone just try, because they get in my way. It’d have to be someone who could do it without trying.

    Indeed. Don’t sweat any of it. You are a whole person.

    That’s not an un-similar place to where I was when I met the Hubs. I was content with where I was in life…I was taking care of myself and the kiddo with no help…didn’t need anybody. And then he showed up. And you know? It was just right. So…don’t compromise, and I guess eventually you get what you’re looking for! As discussed earlier, sometimes you just have to squish a few frogs. I mean…kiss. That’s right…Kiss.

    UNsimilar? WTF? Dude, the baby is ALREADY stealing my brain. Boy will it be sad when it finds out there’s nothing left.

    DISSIMILAR. Jeez.
