Why, you ask?
A few days ago I've stumbled into a conversation. It's those times when you're not supposed to hear people talk but overheard them anyway. Here's the meat of the topic...
Guy 1: Girls are weird, man.
Guy 2: Yeah.
Guy 1: I was with my girl, we were really cool, and then suddenly she acts like she does not care. I mean what's going on? We were having fun and a few minutes later she became cold and distant. I tried to comfort her but she ended up worse. What happened?
Guy 2: Maybe she wanted something?
Guy 1: I don't know, man. She was cool but she went 180. It's really weird. Girls are weird. They say what they want and then change their minds faster than a blink of an eye. It's hard to keep up with them.
Guy 2: Agree. If only we knew how to work our way with these "obstacles" they place. It would be easier for us guys to deal with all the "mind games" that they play.
My brothers, if you're too much concerned with what and how women think, then you're on the wrong side of the field.
If you still don't get it, as with those "whiners" above (God I hate guys who constantly whine about girls this and that and so and so), let me share to you a story about two animals. Read on.
The Scorpion and the Frog
Suddenly, he saw a frog sitting in the rushes by the bank of the stream on the other side of the river. He decided to ask the frog for help getting across the stream.
"Hellooo Mr. Frog!" called the scorpion across the water, "Would you be so kind as to give me a ride on your back across the river?"
"Well now, Mr. Scorpion! How do I know that if I try to help you, you wont try to kill me?" asked the frog hesitantly.
"Because," the scorpion replied, "If I try to kill you, then I would die too, for you see I cannot swim!"
Now this seemed to make sense to the frog. But he asked. "What about when I get close to the bank? You could still try to kill me and get back to the shore!"
"This is true," agreed the scorpion, "But then I wouldn't be able to get to the other side of the river!"
"Alright then...how do I know you won't just wait till we get to the other side and THEN kill me?" said the frog.
"Ahh...," crooned the scorpion, "Because you see, once you've taken me to the other side of this river, I will be so grateful for your help, that it would hardly be fair to reward you with death, now would it?!"
So the frog agreed to take the scorpion across the river. He swam over to the bank and settled himself near the mud to pick up his passenger. The scorpion crawled onto the frog's back, his sharp claws prickling into the frog's soft hide, and the frog slid into the river. The muddy water swirled around them, but the frog stayed near the surface so the scorpion would not drown. He kicked strongly through the first half of the stream, his flippers paddling wildly against the current.
Halfway across the river, the frog suddenly felt a sharp sting in his back and, out of the corner of his eye, saw the scorpion remove his stinger from the frog's back. A deadening numbness began to creep into his limbs.
"You fool!" croaked the frog, "Now we shall both die! Why on earth did you do that?"
The scorpion shrugged, and did a little jig on the drowning frog's back.
"I could not help myself. It is my nature."
Then they both sank into the muddy waters of the swiftly flowing river.
Self destruction - "It's my Nature", said the Scorpion...
There you have it. No need to explain further.
Did you guys get it? I hope so. One way to know is to tell me what you think, in the space below.
Comments are welcome.
