I hate people who wade in gradually, bitching about how cold it is.
How is this like (or unlike) your approach to other tasks or ordeals? I guess it is very similar to my everyday life. I don’t want to read instructions, I just want to do it. No time to read the back of the book, just open up and read. No time to read instructions to a new game, just start playing. Also, if you second guess too many things you will just stand still. There is only 1 thing I have second, third, tenth, 100th guessed about…just ask my husband.
When someone gives you flowers, are you more likely to let them turn completely brown and gross before throwing them out, or to discard them the moment they take on that sick-flower look? I never get flowers so if I am lucky enough to be given some, (my last birthday from my friend Bek), I hold them until they make a mess on the table.
How is this like (or unlike) your approach to other gifts, purchases, or relationships? Yup, I hold onto everything (just ask my husband). Love it or hate it, if someone gives me something I hang on to it thinking about the sentiment behind it.
Think of your favorite movie (or a movie you really like, if you can’t think of a favorite). Some people say that the reasons you love your favorite movie are related to what you value in romantic relationships. How is this true or untrue in your case? I agree with this actually. I want someone to declare undying love to me, so I mostly love movies where it seems the guy is totally in love with girl.
Thanks for participating, and have a metaphorical weekend! Is metaphorical a word?
