|01:25 pm - Everybody's sad and dreamy|
I've been thinking too much lately. I've been thinking about bizarre things, like
In romance novels, how can a woman consider a romance with a man who's had a child with her sister. It's just, ew. I must have read dozens of these romances and the squick factor never really hit me until I was reading one yesterday. About midway through the book, though the woman actually had the same thought, but it didn't stop the romance from happening. Or really contribute much to self-loathing, I think I would be self-loathing.
My head isn't really in the game today. I saw something this morning that, well, doesn't necessary surprise me as much as it stuns me. I'm terrified that a day will dawn when I don't look at hoppie and think, "I love him." I don't even mind the moments when I look at him, "I'm going to kill him (but I love him)." because I know that underneath it all, I have a basic respect, and you know, a softening whenever I look at him. I really do look at him like that. With that stupid, amazed, awed, drooly look. And there are days when I know I could never lose that. (After all, I haven't yet), and then other days when I'm sure it's just a matter of time, so I should savor our love while it lasts.
I hate knowing I don't have all the answers.

yer so silly. over 10 years together and you seriously think that's a problem? :) I'd give lots to have a relationship like yours..*hugs*
also, I hate books where the 'hero' is old enough to be her father..or knows him in some way. ICK. I read a book recently where the two were cousins..COUSINS..second cousins, I think, but it's still just so so icky. Or if the two were raised together for some reason..
I think dating brothers is weird enough. The strangest thing is that the brothers don't seem to mind. I mean, it's way more personal than wearing your brother undies..and would you do that???
But they're men. They don't think like that, and each is sure that they're "better." I mean, I don't want to sound stereotypical, but most men are encouraged by society to score early and often, and so the more the merrier. I'm guessing they don't think when they're touching, "Ew. My brother touched this!" Can you imagine how that would have scarred JFK and Bobby?
I, on the other hand, would scarcely be able to think of anything else.
