whatcha ona bout girl??
A retrospective on the inner workings of love, flying pancakes, mensa disasters, dandelion cookies, number bending, super salt, bubblegum oysters, chicken spit, crystal kidneys, guerilla carrots, polychromatic tofu, paraphysics, tender vigilanties, black sand, phillastine placebos, wood soup, buttered shuttlecocks, apostrophe training, fish whips, bleeding speed, plastic fantastic lobster telephones, venus drug rehab, clowns on fire, kiosks on a leash, marshmello overcoats, bottled light, fried blood, unbridled hyperthyroidism, folding wine, amygdula tickling, fainting in coils, hamburgers for the apocalypse, plastic memes, and conjugal fritters.....well...the love parts true

boating, purism, and 8th grade love

I had a friend on facebook tell me my boat didnt count because it doesnt have a mast...... hehehehe trust me ...having airconditioning and surround sound on the boat make it all worthwhile... I like to be a purist sometimes but come on now!!!! I love to kayak but think better of criticizing his boat because it HAS a mast!

Being a purist about love though is fun....love in the 8th grade was best....... those butterflies....holding hands....... no job... no bills.... steely dan.....not worried about your paycheck.....a smile that just lites you up......thats perfection isnt it?

boats w/ and w/o masts are cool.

8th grade love was cool too... and you do trade some things for other things with maturity. so it kind of evens out.

love at any age is beautiful. love is eternal, and the cool thing is it gets better with time if you are willing to do the work required to maintain the relationship...

have a great weekend. enjoy the moments!

oh Mz. Coffman! You silly! Thats why I digress to the 8th grade.... That love was effortless.... like you said there are trades to be made... love as an adult requires relationship management....Im not complaining mind you.....agreed?

To be on the sea is such a treat...so it doesn't matter if you have a mast or not...however, at least us without masts, do not have to wait for the wind to go fast...AND we can anchor in shallow places...so...I'd much rather have a power boat over a sail boat. Just my opinion...being a First Mate and all. :)

I totally get this... remember when you used to kiss for hours, hold hands, and then run to tell your girls all about it? Never mind, sorry that was me... lol I remember setting up the perfect songs on my tape deck just to make sure I had a good tune to kiss too... Dang that 8th Grade Love...
