Dormi asa cum ti-ai asternut

Azi am realizat ca petrec de 2 ori mai mult timp cu colegii, decat cu fiul meu. Imi vad colegii mai mult decat imi vad fiul sau sotul. Nu, nu iau in considerare timpul in care dorm (de ce l-as lua?).

Da, stiu ca ar trebui sa ma bucur ca am un job, ca am colegi pe care sa ii vad zilnic, dar nu asta e problema mea. Problema e ca am ajuns sa traim intr-o societate in care ne falim ca familia e pe primul loc desi, incet-incet o impingem tot mai jos pe lista. Ne vedem tot mai putin si cand ne vedem suntem preocupati sa ne citim mailurile  (ca doar avem smartphones cu totii, sa le si folosim), sa ne uitam la televizor (avem si o scuza buna – trebuie sa fim la curent cu ce se mai intampla prin lume), sa ne intalnim cu prietenii (doar suntem fiinte prin excelenta sociale), sa facem cumparaturi, curat, mancare, sa reparam masina si multe, multe altele.

Si timpul cu familia? Se reduce cam la 2 ore pe zi daca stai sa faci niste calcule, poate si mai putin. Cred ca din cauza asta a si aparut vorba aia ca “nu e important cat timp petreci cu cineva, ci cum il petreci”. Bullshit I say! Traim intr-o societate unde accentul nu se pune pe familie!!! Suntem niste animalute ce suntem dresate sa muncim tot mai mult si tot mai bine. Altfel nu imi explic cum familia poate sa ne ocupe o parte atat de mica din viata.

A fost o vreme in care ma tot miram ca nu apuc sa vorbesc cu ai mei cand vin in vizita, sau cand mergem noi la ei. Cum sa apuc, daca aveam cu totii cu totul alte prioritati? Parca suntem programati sa incercam sa inghesuim cat mai multe activitati intr-un timp extrem de limitat, incercam sa ridicam asta la nivel de arta si ne mandrim cand inregistram cate un succes pe partea asta. Oare chiar asa ar trebui sa fie? Ma revolt impotriva celui care decide ca asa ar trebui sa fie! Sigur este ursuz, lacom, egoist si SINGUR!

Traim in lumea pe care ne-am creat-o… si asta ne ocupa tot timpul. Literalmente.

Sex la prima intalnire

Recunosc ca nu asta aveam intentia sa postez azi, dar daca s-a nimerit sa dau peste articolul de la Adevarul… n-am putut rezista sa il impart cu voi 😀

Pentru cei care sar peste detalii si trec direct la “fapte” (mai precis la schema aia draguta cu femeile si barbatii care sunt mai usor de bagat in pat din prima), sa stiti ca cercetarea asta “savanta” a fost facuta de un site englez. De ce-or vrea englezii sa stie treburi de-astea… ma depaseste complet…

In alta ordine de idei, fetelor, daca sunteti casatorite cu un barbat de vreo 28 de ani, atletic si care bea si fumeaza doar asa, socially, sa-i legati GPS-ul la mana, cu tot cu un microfon si eventual si o minicamera de luat vederi. Sau sa-l paziti bine. Sau sa-l insotiti peste tot. Sau sa nu va mirati!

In rest, ce sa va mai zic? Las imaginile de aici sa vorbeasca de la sine (in cazul rarisim in care nu ati dat click pe primul link) 🙂

“Best before” relationships

I read a post yesterday (you can find it here) that made me think: what if we had expiration dates on relationships, like we have on any product, when we go to a store? You’d walk around and see a guy and instantly know that the expiry date of your “everlasting” love is 2 weeks from now. No questions, no doubts. You just know for sure that it won’t last more than that. Would it be better or would it spoil the fun? Would we suffer more or be more in love? I bet we would try to prove the expiry dates wrong. We’d do anything to make it last one more day, just to see if it is possible. God forbit that from happening. We’d never trust another expiration date again – imagine the chaos in a perfect “best before” world!!

Of course, there would be guys and girls with a “lifetime guarantee”. You’d know they are the ones you can spend your entire life with. Now I know you’re thinking this would be too easy.  The funny thing about love is that it is a two way street. It’s not enough to love, you have to be loved too, and the other way around. So it woudln’t really be that as simple as it seems.

Also, you are well aware of the fact that any product has some usage and storage instructions. Those would not be available, of course, so if you do not “use” the “product” the way you are supposed to, or “store” it in places that are not recommended, the expiry date instantly changes. What would life be without the surprise factor? But, really, girl, what were you thinking when you left your man with his friends (“product” will degrade faster if left unsupervised),  at a beach party (too hot for the “product” to preserve its qualities), right next to a group of Russian belly dancers (“product” should not be left alone near hot dancers)? No wonder the expiry date changed!!

I imagine break-ups would be less difficult to bear. Less people would make scenes, less slammed doors, less broken plates, less tears, less feelings of “the end of the world is here and now”, less “let’s give it another try”, less “I don’t understand”, less drama queens, less throwing clothes in the street (I guess people would have the decency to pack them and put them in a safe place when they know the storm is coming)… We would still not understand “why” but we would know “when”.

We’d be able to plan our “mend my heart by finding someone new (preferably in a club)” dates a lot better. We’d know not to turn down a coffee invitation for next week. We’d know not to plan a trip for two for the weekend, but rather a drink with the boys. We wouldn’t buy ten bottles of his favourite drink, two days before the expiry date. We wouldn’t cook his favourite dish on the expiry date… or maybe we would. Maybe we would do all that, hoping that we would change something. We’d get our hopes high, fighting for the impossible dream.

No, expiration dates and traffic lights would not change how we feel, not too much. We would just find new means to have it our own way, to go around the rules, to break them or prove them wrong, we would suffer and love with the same intensity. Human nature won’t change just because some details have been slightly altered. But the imagination exercise was good 🙂

Any ideas on funny things that would make life more interesting? Let me know.
