I was saving this for a day where it actually meant something – but I felt like just posting it already. My brilliant metaphor. Boys – pay attention. I came up with this one for a guy friend, and I think the analogy finally made him realize what exatly was going on, and why he and his girlfriend would never get back together.
Relationships are like car engines. Love is like oil. Keep a good amount of reasonably clean oil in the engine, things will run smoothly. Let it get too low or too dirty, things will not run as smoothly, though putting some serious TLC into the engine will get it back up to snuff. However, if you let the engine run out of oil entirely, eventually it will sieze and be COMPLETELY UNREPAIRABLE. All you can do at that point is move on and replace the engine.
I don’t really have anything else to say. Funny how the blogging is prolific when life goes to shit, and when life is good, the blogging goes to shit. Ah well. C’est la vie.
