Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

When Water Overflows ... Nov 15, 2008

This is a joke between one divorced male friend and me. This is the strange terminology he has for his apparent celibacy ... not from the lack of potential suitors, but by choice.

Strange no doubt - a guy in this day and age choosing (rather like pulling toenails out with pliers kinda joy) celibacy of the most celebrated 'playing the field' rational that everyone seems to subscribe to (going by the He Said She Said segment on mix.fm some days ago). This buddy of mine, from my observation is a really nice chap. He's got a sense of humour, he's responsible and he'd go out on a limb for those who have a place in his heart ... a gem if you ask me, for the lucky female who does win his heart. (she'd have to be a pretty special lady herself and that's the tough bit me thinks)

The first time he'd said this wonderful analogy to his lack thereof sexlife, it stumped me for a bit, but when I got it, I was cracked up laughing ... so I take me digs at him now whenever possible ahahahah *evil me*

And then there was this odd desire to find something as suitably ridiculous as well as funny ... and while in the shower this morning I found the gem of a retort (or so I like to think) to that which also suitably describes my state of celibacy by circumstance ... My Well Is Dry ... ahahahhaahahahhaahahahhaahahahha

This sounds like a pretty funny self help type book title doesn't it??? His Water Overflows, Her Well Is Dry .(@ copyrighted ok!!! or I'll sue the pants off the one who plagarises this title!!!!) .. ahahahahah better than a Men are from Mars Women are from Venus .... me has to talk to this buddy of mine ... I think we have something here that might rake in the moolah!

What I have come to realise over the last years especially being 'technically single' as most people label me ... is that sex life and lack thereof is an immensely comical subject matter. And those of us who have it and those of us who don't can come up with really side cracking instances and anecdotes ... that really should be shared even in anonimity ... (some like others to think they have Richter scales busting sex lives when really stone colder than dead frozen is how their 'water level' is ....ehehehhe)

And this to me is funny. Why most people seem to think that celibacy by choice is such an insane option to undertake. Conquests merely for the number of bedpost notches and scratches is more sought after than connecting with the right person and then letting nature take its course. Anyways, if anything, I've learnt to let others pursue what appeals to them.

It may not appeal to me but that's just me. I'm looking for something else. I don't deny that the company of the opposite sex is missed, but I've always subscribed that sex itself is part of an expression of something more deeper and more meaningful. And yes no wonder I remain 'technically single' ahahahha ... people think I'm weird! I don't really give a toss anyways :) ... my life to live.

So next time my buddy says he's suffering from water overflow, I've got my clever reply ahahahahah ... although whether he understand what I mean is entirely a different story.

But I have to say, the openness of such friendships always leaves me smiling. I might not have everything I thought I needed to be happy, but I've been blessed with the best mixture of friends ever - they never cease to put joy into my heart.

For all whom I call friend, .ani just wants to say I love you all for the joy you bring to my life.
