now, would i actually slap someone in the head?
yes. yes i would.
yes. yes i have.
here’s how it happened….
a friend of mine flew in from his town to my town and was staying with Craig and i for about 3 weeks while helping Craig make a record. occasionally he’d stay home with me if Craig didn’t need him that day or just didn’t need him first thing in the morning. it was also baseball season and he’s a huge Red Sox fan, so we watched the games when he stayed home. he had a girlfriend at the time, who i had never met.
they weren’t getting along…
lots of fighting over the phone.
lots of long distance neuroses.
it had been going back and forth for about an hour. at least half a dozen phone calls.
he answers the phone (again):
him: i’m not at the studio!
her: *more yelling*
him: yeah, she’s here. we’re watching the Red Sox game.
her: YOU’RE WATCHING BASEBALL WITH HER?!? (this i heard, and you would have thought he just told her we were spooning on the couch)
him: calm down! geez! you need to be more like Sharideth.
i got up off my couch, walked over to the one he was laying on, and slapped the crap out of his pointed head.
boys, i don’t care how much you feel like it’s justified, the best time to compare your girlfriend to another girl is never ever.
now don’t get the wrong idea about his girlfriend. she may have been acting like an in-patient, but plenty of it was his fault. by the time i met her, she was terrified of me. the extremes i had to go to to break the ice and get her to relax were truly epic.
then i had to do the same thing with his sister.
you heard me.
we are all one big happy family now. some of my best friends. but it wasn’t without plenty of work.
comparing one girl to another is always going to cause a dating fail. don’t do it.
you will get slapped by me.
girls: ever been compared to another girl? tell the boys about how much that blows.
boys: ever done this? did anybody smack you?
