Here's to the Mens

Crazy as they are beautiful, no amount of simple or complex thought is ever enough to figure them out, and yet sometimes there's nothing more straightforward. When they're good they're very very good, and when they're bad they're horrid, but the good ones are good enough to redeem the whole gender and sometimes the horrid ones are delicious. Yerp. I'm on some different kind of mid-month dragon this weekend. A much nicer one, who still makes my brain do strange things.

Saw Little G last night and had the first frank sex talk I'd had with a girlf in awhile, which was different of course because there are ways one can be a little more frank and funny with a girl than with a boy, whose more tender sensibilities must always be protected.

I used to think sex talks were great fun, and then decided they were pretty inappropriate, but now I'm thinking they're mostly useful because they can point to common patterns - little clues about where such and such a thing might have come from, insights about some behaviour thing or other - extra dribs and drabs of information that help one, in the long run, to be an easier person to live with.

Not much other news as the weekend breaks over us - I decided yesterday should be Friday so today I'm pretending it's Saturday and I'm having to go to the office to clear up a backlog of work. I will commit myself accordingly, that is, hardly at all.

Boys are great fun. And nothing should be taboo.

Have a loverly weekend.

Funny, I mistakenly spent a lot of yesterday thinking it was Friday. So I will enjoy Saturday with you today as well. :)

I haven't had too many sex talks myself. But strangely enough, some of the most frank conversations have been with my Oma Bear! Which you'd think might be really awkward, but it wasn't. Dutch = frankness.

That always struck me about you people, Mel. All the frankness. Must be nice. All my granny's ever taught me about da sex is that some couples sleep in twin beds instead of one big one.

You ladies also have lovey-dovey weekends, even if in one case it's from a cruel distance.

No no, he's here this weekend. He's here until December 4th I think. But it looks like he caught a cold from the little 'uns.

You have a nice weekend too! I'm not in the mood to post anything today..

As for the frankness, all it seems to do is get my Oma into trouble with her daughters-in-law and hair stylists!

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Little ones are filthy creatures. So are older ones, if Mel's Oma is any indication.

So she scandalizes her daughters-in-law . . . that's awesome!
