Wish I Had Gas

My new way of letting the ladies down gently: "I'd suggest going back to my place, but we don't have heat." Yes, my roomies and I ran out of oil two weeks ago. I think we might be able to make it through these last five weeks of winter, but ya never know.

Robbing Society

It's been a long time since my last relationship, more than two years, to be honest. Now before you start rolling your eyes and say goodbye to your good mood, understand I don't look at this as a negative. If anything, it's a good thing. Relationships change people, no doubt, as they adopt each others quirks, laugh at each others stupid jokes and realize they've always got someone in their corner, someone who'll be there to listen to rants about a shitty day at work or jubilation over a promotion.

But maybe that comfort level is a bad thing. Is any level of comfort good, or does it breed complacency? Think about it. When you're in a relationship, you work out less often. You practice guitar a bit less, you drink a lot less and you don't see your friends as often. Sure, the regular sex and cuddling is nice, but at what cost? Imagine all you could accomplish if you didn't have to lend part of your focus on a significant other. We'd have a cure for AIDS if some schmuck hadn't gotten married after graduating med school. Astronauts would've visited Mars by now had a woman not wed her high school sweetheart after graduating MIT. Is that fair to the world?
