Why I’d prefer you penned down your argument …

Wouldn’t it be great if we could argue on paper instead?

Imagine that.

If you could just yell at me in prose, it would be so wonderful.

I could watch my favourite show without the constant bickering. And you could watch yours. Why do we always have to pick the time we want to watch TV to relate how much better the other one could be?

We could actually think before we spat out the venom that we do. Writing often makes us think before we unleash the poison within.

You and I could make up before we actually fought. Imagine that.

We would be forced to give one another the benefit of doubt before we pounced. Maybe we’d have enough time to reflect and realise the other one’s not the only one at fault.

Now, don’t you wish you could write our argument instead of using our vocal cords as well?

Maybe we could go to the beach and read each other’s qualms while we sun bake.

I’m a Girl, you’re a Boy …

This has supposedly been my quirky retort to any argument I couldn’t quite solve since I was a child, having used it on my granddad at the ripe age of three or so when he was unable to comprehend something that was obviously extremely pertinent to me at the time I was “discussing” my stance.

Yesterday, I found that this simple statement still often makes sense in many imperative circumstances. Please allow me to explain:

1. Arguer – “Why do you need as many handbags as you do?”

My answer – “You wouldn’t understand – I’m a girl, you’re a boy”

2. Arguer – “Why do you always have to be so melodramatic?”

My answer – “You wouldn’t understand – I’m a girl, you’re a boy”

3. Arguer – “Why do you always read between the lines when I tell you something I believe is really quite simple?”

My answer – “You wouldn’t understand – I’m a girl, you’re a boy”

4. Arguer – “Why do you always think you’re smarter than me?”

My answer – “You wouldn’t understand – I’m a girl, you’re a boy”

I have more, but I think you get the gist 😀

Have a wonderful weekend my “sweet as pie” everybody-ies!!
