Your Side of the Bed or Mine?

First of all, I feel that people should be shot in the head if they call sex, “making love”. I think our new wonderful president should enact a law or even an amendment calling for immediate castration if someone refers to the act of boning as other than that. Instead of making love, we will use terms like “sex”, “fuck”, “doing it”, “getting some”, “buttering the pancakes”. I fell that this sweeping legislation will almost immediately ebb the raging divorce rate in this country.

I’ll choose love for 200, Alex

Last week’s post on Thursday regarding relationships like corporations wasn’t very romantic. But let’s face it, society has built up love and couplings to be this biochemical explosion that can only be understood with a periodic table and a Bunsen burner. People talk about “having chemistry” with someone else as if that is the litmus test for all attraction. If they aren’t using scientific terms for pairing up with someone, then it becomes some magical mumbo jumbo of how a person saw fireworks or heard the perfect sonata when “the one” kissed them.

SolarQuest

Long ago in a land called California, before the twenty years of marriage and even before the courtship to that marriage, we bought each other the same Christmas gift. It was a cheesy little board game called SolarQuest but for us it was validation of our burgeoning love.

Ebb and Flow

Young love. First love. Do you remember the first time you felt the flutter of love? Do you remember the one who took your breath away? People have written us saying that it sounds that we don’t believe in love. What we don’t believe in is the enamored clinginess that passes for love these days. What we don’t believe in is the packaged, fast food love that people swoon over and we all lap it up like the ideal. What we don’t believe in is being in love one day and not the other.

Love, children and more coffee, please.

Last night, at 2:38am, I was watching Ricky trying to fall asleep. He was in our bed and doing whatever he could to stay awake. I watched as his eyes would slowly close and he would quickly open them in an effort to keep his parents awake. Paul and I have a strict rule of no children in our bedroom but, at 2:38am on a Monday morning, rules are less mandates and mere suggestions. At one point, he reached over and took hold of my arm which made his resolve falter and he drifted off. All the while that I watched his little face, I could see Paul falling asleep next to him.

Young Love, Dumb Love

Another Monday and we are gearing up for Summer at CoupleDumb. There is so much to do and so little time. Next week we will be doing a special radio show for Father’s Day because we believe in equal time. We are also planning a trip back to the motherland to see some old friends (no they aren’t old). It’s an exciting time for us with the Dysaffirmation book out, planning book signings and marketing, it’s almost like falling in love. But will it last?

Celebrity Smackdown: William Shakespeare

Love is a many splendored thing. Many artists have tried to capture the essence of love but few have succeeded. Even today, romantic films often fall into the morose category and leave love somewhere on the cutting room floor. Few artists have had the impact on this four letter word than one writer. So this weeks Celebrity Smackdown is a little different. It will be a posthumous smackdown in some part. I wonder if they have internet in heaven and if Shakespeare is on Facebook?
