when i told a friend of mine recently about a guy i dated who was absolutely gorgeous, but had all the depth of a mud puddle, his response was “well, sometimes you have to go through a mud puddle”.
wish i’d thought of that. but i didn’t, so i will just steal the idea and write a blog about it. pffft.
remember stepping in a puddle while wearing tennis shoes when you were a kid? terrible feeling. one that sticks with you for a while. it’s probably been a bit since you’ve that done again, if ever. lesson learned right?
yes? no? mostly?
we’ll go with mostly.
well, except for that phase when you’re jumping in every puddle you can find just for fun. take that as figuratively as you want.
if you haven’t already, you will most likely step in a mud puddle at some point in your dating career. what is a mud puddle, you ask because i wrote the question that way? why, let me tell you!
1. shiny on the surface – mud puddles can be really purrtty. especially with that rainbow oil slick on the top.
2. shallow – there’s just not much there. enough to soak your sock and leave you full of regret, but that’s about it.
3. murky just under the surface – the muck is easily disturbed with even the smallest rock. it can be as confusing as it is swirly.
don’t beat yourself up too much. it happens to most everyone. go home, strip off your soggy sock, air out your pruney toes and start fresh the next day. the good news, unless you’re the type to invest way too long on something that should have run it’s course in a week, you’ll get out of the puddle almost as fast you got in. if you are that type, stop it. boo!
have you fallen into a mud puddle, literally or figuratively?
ever gotten the bottom of your jeans wet in a puddle? ugh, that’s the worst!
