Peas & Buckets .. February 7, 2007

Posted by stagedive in Idle Thoughts.

I had a phone chat with a friend earlier and he was enquiring about my love life. We chatted and his closing line, in the style of an old Chinese proverb, amused the hell out of me (the context being that he is in a very happy long term relationship) ..  I quote .. 

‘Just remember that for every time you have sex in the first year of your relationship, put a pea in a bucket. Then for everytime you have sex after the first year, take one pea out … it will never be an empty bucket’ …

So is there someone somewhere selling peas and buckets for this purpose? .. his girlfriend whacked him round the head at that point ..

An interesting analogy but one that doesn’t really hold water (unlike the bucket) if the relationship is truly worth having.

Wast; here here I agree .. in fact I didn’t even think that philosophically about it as he was laughing his head off & just trying to wind me up .. was quite funny though ..
