Dog's Relationship to a Car - 07/24/08 07:12 PM
Thinking on the topic of love, and how people 'yearn' for love.....I read something recently that cracked me up. Someone was relating people and relationships, to dog's and cars. First, thy cry because they want to get in the car.
Then as soon as the car starts to move, they cry because they want to get out.
And of course, as soon as they get out, all they want to do is get back in as soon as possible.
Good thing for us, dogs aren't especially musical or just imagine....all the annoying songs there'd be (51 comments)

I'm sure you've heard it said that the people that irritate us the most are the ones who expressing the same qualities that we have! Hmm...... No wonder our own family can be so annoying - we see ourselves in them! And I guess that goes to say, the see themselves in us!

Chronic Apologizing or is Love Never Having to Say You're Sorry? - 07/01/08 12:44 PM

I don't think its in the typical 'saleman's' ego to do that........But you've probably all met someone who in the 'interest of keeping the peace'......will chronically apologize? Now this is a different take from the Jenny's (Ali McGraw) with Oliver (Ryan O'Neil) in the infamous Love Story - where she says "Love is never having to say you're sorry".
