Other Half .. August 9, 2006

Posted by stagedive in Idle Thoughts.

There’s not many things that turn me into a rant, but the term ‘my other half’ is one of them. In a conversation abut holiday choices yesterday, 3 co-workers all used the term, one of them used it four times.

There is no such thing as an ‘other half’, unless you cannot function without that part of your body – and your partner is not and will not be part of your body. In the case of the match.com advert where the couple are inseparable, you could perhaps make a case, but the vast majority of people that use the term are the same people that complain about couple-dom and married life and crave some form of isolation. So in effect, your ‘other half’ is only a critical part of your anatomy because you are too indecisive or lazy to do the basics of life yourself.

 .. and relax ..

maybe titles in general are a dodgey subject?
