food is always a good analogy

"When's your first date?"

"She's really busy this week, and then I'm going home for Christmas, so it might not be until January."

"That's a long time from now."

"I know, but I already waited this long."

"Wei-chao had a good analogy for this. Think about when you're hungry. If you wait three hours, you don't feel hungry any more."

"[laughing]"

"Or you go find a snack."

"Did you know that scientifically speaking, humans want food, but don't need it?" - Dr. Spaceman, "30 Rock".

(I know, not really related. But I've been itching to quote 30 Rock for some time now.)

Well, I suppose if you're not married yet you're still in the "test-drive" phase! (see previous post)

Women are not snacks (see previous post)

(Totally related - not that anyone here would be a tasty donut :)

But women are snacks! See Sarah Lee, Little Debbie, Ms. Freshley, Betty Crocker, Aunt Jemima, et al. Given a five-gallon bucket of insulin, I bet I could get to 3rd gear with every last one of them! Why do we eat those we love?

It must be me, but when I am hungry, I stay hungry. If I have a lot of sushi, I can be full, but still hungry after an hour.

I wouldn't suggest "snacking" if you're in a committed relationship, whether or not you've "test driven" your relationship or not.

Hey Nin!
I'm on blogger now! Yay. I'm actually going to use it, too. How the heck do I save you on, like, a "blog roll"? You see how you have that "Author's Favorites" column? How do I get that so I can easily put all my fave links in one place?
