A Relationship In Trouble

Esquire’s second annual The Big Black Book (which is red this year) enlightens the modern man with a list of “10 Things You Never Say To a Woman.” Upon reflection, I realized I’ve said 8 of the 10 to Blythe, including the following:

“Is that what you’re going to wear?”

“You look [anything but ‘beautiful’].”

“You were hungry, huh?”

“And you’re not invited.”

“Do you have any cash on you?”

“It’s my money.”

“Let’s walk. We [you] could use the exercise.”

“No.”

But I don't think this is going to score you any points in Blog of Love.

Poor Blythe!
Most of those things aound reasonable to me, though, depending on the context...
But I am pretty bitchy myself.

Poor Blythe. She deserves so much more from her, from her... uh... longtime platonic male companion/combatant.

Or maybe she doesn't. How would I know?

*snort*

I was just about to bug you to post again, when you come up with a chestnut like this. I think Blythe is very scared that, should we meet, we will run away together and have a platonic love affair wherein we tease her all day long.

You game?

blythe said...

please don't. i already can't afford my therapy bills.

Mr. Shain said...

is that what you're calling your alcoholism these days, therapy?

The Yellow Dart said...

Oh my god! SHAIN! I feel like defending Blythe, but Blythe, I don't really know you so I don't know what to say. Except that...SHAIN! You're so MEAN!!!

p.s. This is the only blog where I check the comments as regularly as the posts. Draw your own conclusions.
