Mini-Post Mondays: Dreams, Nate, Traffic, Marriage, and Banned

mini post


Things Holden has said right after he woke up (which I’m assuming are dream-leftovers):

I peed in my room! (He’s still in diapers)

I found Peyton in my book. (Peyton is his best friend)

*  *  *  *  *


me: I don’t want to get married when I’m 40. I want to get married while I’m still hot. Do you think they’ll let us have cameras if I marry you in jail?

Nate: You worry about some weird shit, babe.

I used to think no one in the world other than me knew how to drive.

And then the other day I started thinking, you know what? With all the dumb people, there should be a lot more accidents. Maybe there are more amazing drivers than I realize. So I started to think you were all amazing drivers.

But then I paid extra special attention over the past week while driving and realized you’re all just fucking lucky. Except the car that was flipped over this morning. That person’s not lucky.

Do people ever actually follow through with that whole If we’re not married by the time we’re 40 we’ll marry each other thing? Because I’m pretty certain I’ve made that deal with at least 5 people, and I’m not even sure how I feel about this whole marriage thing.

It’s Banned Books Week, and I couldn’t think of enough to write a whole post about it, but I am attempting to read Catch 22, so I’m participating.

  1. “…and I’m not even sure how I feel about this whole marriage thing.”

    Marriage is fulfilling if you are married to someone who expects you to be exactly who and what you are — and gives you the freedom to explore what that means.

    I am not a fan of conventional marriage for the sake of convention or tradition – if it’s what both partners want, that’s great … but in marriage it is so important to walk your own path, individually and as a couple.

    When I’m on my deathbed, I want having been in a successful, long lasting marriage to bring me peace and joy; it isn’t enough to merely cross the finish line still married, that would bring only regret. That I’m still married has to mean something … it has to have been real.

    Thankfully, I’m married to my best friend – a woman who feels the same way I do about marriage. Marriage shouldn’t be a sacrifice of self, and for too many people, that is what it becomes.


Tell me whatcha think about that!
