When life throws you Virgo– and you’re feeling averse to actual work– read advice lists.
I’ve just discovered a new guilty pleasure: the lists at men’s health dot com. Oh, the laugh out loud, squirmy goodness of it all, and not ecause they’re wrong either. There was one particular passage prefacing a list of what not to say to women that may live on my desktop forever: “Women freak out. Often at you. Often for no discernible reason.”
There are bits where men give advice and ones where women give advice. As far as can tell they can all be replaced by advice from the movie Field of Dreams:
Shoeless Joe Jackson: The last two have been high and tight, so where o you think the next one’s gonna be?
Archie Graham: Well, either low and away… or in my ear.
Shoeless Joe: He’s not gonna want to load the bases, so look for low and away. But watch out for in your ear.
I’ve always thought baseball movies contained the best relationship advice I’ve ever seen but your mileage may vary.
