Feeling the Love

Man, there’s no way for me to share this and not seem like a freak, but I’m going for it…

I recently had a hilarious conversation about love and how we, metaphorically, feel it with this woman.

She, metaphorically speaking, wants to take those she loves, wrap them up like a burrito, squish them, and then eat them.

My mom, metaphorically speaking, always says she wants to squeeze people until their eyeballs pop.

Me, well, I have several levels I can take this to:

  1. If I say I want to put someone on a cracker and take them home I mean that I find this person terribly cute and endearing and that I want to take care of them. This is usually a statement made regarding animals, kids, friends, etc.
  2. Now, if I say I want to put someone in my pocket and take them home, well I’ve just upped the anti a bit. What this statement means is that I’m a bit more physically attracted to the person and think of them as more hot than cute and cuddly.
  3. But if I say that I want to put someone on a stick and take them home, well! The whole concept of putting someone on a stick sort of implies ownership, right? Like this person is the ultimate? Make sense?

What weird things do you say or feel about those you care about?

    Annie, this blog is so funny that I want to punch you in the face, kick you, wrap you in a burrito, smother you with salsa, stomp on it and then tear it apart with my fingernails. That’s how much I love you.

  2. I think this is just great. I’ve been trying to think of what I say but it’s kind of like when you’re trying to find an example and come up with blanks. I know that I’ll say I want to keep someone in my heart’s pocket if I just love them some much. If it’s someone who I want to take care of, I’ll say I want to mother them up. If I want to give a person stern talking to out of concern, I say I’m about to go all Mama Hulk on them.
