The Fickle Hell-Beast




Favorite things of this very moment:

  • Borders
  • Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer
  • Jane Austen books (and the movies made from)
  • Eyeliner
  • New shampoo & conditioner
  • Edward Cullen (and all pictures thereof)
  • Jacob Black
  • New books
  • When Jay and I trade books
  • "An Obscure Permanence" by Metasomatic

Recently Forrest was talking and he called something, I honestly don't remember what it was, a "fickle hell-beast." That...totally cracked me up. That term...it's brilliant. The question that when through my head then was: relationships.

What's more ridiculous and tormenting that dealing with the opposite sex? Seriously. Just think about it. Is there anything more tormenting (short of actual physical pain and suffering) than the struggles dealt with by those in love (or trying to head in that general direction)? I can't think of any. I think heartbreak is where the whole fickle hell-beast thing really shows it's true colors.

As my momma likes to say, "Love isn't just blind...it's also deaf, dumb, and stupid." We walk right into the open jaws of that monster, and many times we walk there willingly. What fools we mortals truly are...

Just a point to ponder.
