When two people are under the influence of the most violent, most insane, most delusive, and most transient of passions, they are required to swear that they will remain in that excited, abnormal, and exhausting condition continuously until death do them part.
I have another quote that sticks in my mind and has for the past twenty plus years, however it is not of the "inspirational variety". I will, however, share it here because we're all friends now right? It requires a small bit of back story. I had a tight group of guys that I grew up with that lived in my neighborhood. We hung out every day in grade school and high school played football or basketball every day after school and all summer long, basically until dark. As we got older and discovered girls, we started to date. One of my buddies (we'll call him J to preserve the guilty) was dating a girl (named M) and she was one of the first girls he had sex with. Apparently M was also dating my other friend (we'll call him C) and was sleeping with him as well. Apparently J found out that C was doing the nasty with M when J thought he and M were in an exclusive relationship. Needless to say, fireworks erupted between my two good friends upon the discovery that M was sleeping with both J and C, and doing quite a few nasty things with each, sometimes on the same day. After much discussion (with me trying to mediate to avoid said friends beating the shit out of each other), J got a rather puzzled look on his face. C looked very concerned.
"Dude, look, I just have one question" said J to C, after much pondering.
Looking rather perplexed, C waited with anticipation for said question, wondering what on Earth could be coming next. Is the friendship over? Has he permanently destroyed the brotherhood? "Sure, anything man" replied C.
"How the hell can you kiss where my dick's been?" Boom, mic dropped. C then realized, not only had he been kissing where J's dick had been, he'd been licking and sucking there too. Awkward silence followed....Neither one of them ever slept with her again. Perhaps a bit of a long story, but that quote has stuck with me from that moment on and the story still comes up now and then when we are all together and it happened over 20 years ago. I hope you found it a bit humorous as we all need a laugh now and then.

caballotierra: Hey all, I setup a new account since my W figured out my login and was using my posts against me. Since we're going through divorce, I thought it would be safer to remove my old name. Although I feel attached to it.
