Bryce Gruber’s Thoughts of the Day (sexual deviant edition)

Today’s thoughts are powered by Trader Joe’s cookies…

1) My Friend Josh Told Me I’m a Sexual Deviant. So here’s the back story- Josh and I take a philosophy class every Tuesday night that outlines some pretty cool life principles. I got to class about 15 minutes late last night only to find out that I missed the section outlining what qualifies someone as a sexual deviant. Crap- I’m a sexual deviant. I have a private meeting with my teacher tomorrow so I obviously plan to ask how I can remedy this. Truthfully, if the answer is something like “missionary style ONLY, and only after an exchange of vows,” I’m going to have to stay sexually deviant. Let’s be clear… if I ever exchange vows I’m going to be having sex with the same person for like 50 years. You better believe I’m going to try all sorts of stuff.

2) WHEN DO YOU LOVE? I’ve had an open discussion for some time now with my friends Christophe and Melody on the idea of love. Melody’s feelings are that love is a slow-growing process like a gradual mold, only to be exposed after several careful months of growth and facilitation. Christophe, on the other hand, thinks love is like spontaneous combustion- you never know when or how it will occur. So, I look at both of these delightful friend examples and wonder who is right? Melody is happily married to the man that took 5 months to say “I love you,” to her (and only after some prodding), and Christophe is happily in love with a woman that he said the L word to after only 6-7 weeks. Is there a right answer?

3) Rich Girls. I’ll tell you anything I know… any little thing I know.
