I promise that I am working on some posts. I promise I am sorry, but last week life kind of got in the way. So, I leave you with a little humor to entertain you while I write. This pretty much sums up my summer motto.
I found this the other day on YouTube. Now, I have to say that I am not entirely sure if it's real. Though I also have to say that I have known women like this so it wouldn't shock me if this did actually happen. It's a great example of why women shouldn't jump to conclusions. You know the whole idea that if a guy doesn't call you at a certain time then he must not be interested, a jerk, or any other insult you can think of (something that I will talk more about later).
Is it strange that he didn't call her on his trip? Probably.
However, I will say that I would think that if you hadn't heard from your boyfriend in a few days you would be more worried about his safety and well being (you know, being his girlfriend and all). Which is why this is quite entertaining and why I say women should be careful when they automatically assume a guy is a jerk.
Sorry it's a bit long. It's highly entertaining, I promise.
At the Lincoln Park Zoo over the summer. And proof that he will in fact where a Michigan State shirt for me.
Kids are fantastic. I mean there is nothing like a kid's perspective on the world. They tell it like it is with brutal honesty. Plus, they rock at giving compliments to make your world a little better when you feel like it just plain sucks.
Case in point, my seven-year-old nephew. Who found out that I would be "dateless" for the Michigan vs. Michigan State game and offered to come along. He even said he would wear a Michigan State shirt and cheer for them, with me, even though his mother (my sister) is a Michigan fan. Now that boy is going to make some girl really happy someday.
During all of the holiday festivities, my sister and I had a little talk about boyfriends and crappy dates (she's been married for a while, so she mostly just listens to my stories). She asked my niece and nephew about how they felt about me someday giving them another uncle. They, of course, seemed confused by this. I mean they have plenty of fabulous uncles already. And they have always known me as their cool Aunt Jess that lives away from them.
My nephew doesn't really seem to like the whole idea at all. He informed me that he didn't want me to get married because he wouldn't be able to see me as much. It's sweet really. Of course I told him that just meant he would have another really cool guy to hang out with which made him sort of like the idea. Actually, my nephew would really like all of his family to live in one big house with him. I have no idea where he gets that idea from at all.
My niece, who is five and very diplomatic about things was a completely different story. She flat out said that she doesn't think I will ever get married. In fact, I think she even laughed at the idea as if it was that crazy. To her, it seems like this idea is totally insane and ridiculous.
Now, on the one hand I would like to think that she's just always really only known me as her single Aunt Jess. Oh and the fact that she is only five. Once she had a whole conversation with my mom about how someday she will be older than her brother. So maybe she is not a reliable source on the future here. After all, the two adults in the room still had plenty of hope. On the other hand, it's a little sad that she's totally given up hope here. I mean come on, really.
