Unless you're planning on a divorce, wouldn't severing your husband's genitals sort of be self-punishing as well? Unless he's really bad in bed? Or impotent anyway?
It just doesn't seem likely to me that she was thinking long-term.
Which may be something I wasn't doing earlier today, as I critiqued a short story written by evilkev. I typed out comments like, "Put a period at the end of your sentences, or something" and "He pauses a lot. Shouldn't you just say it was like he was stuck in neutral, with the occasional spasmic jolt forward?" and after the words 'with a thoughtfully look' I had to ask if it was fully thoughtful or just thoughtful?
Of course, I had to point out some missing words and some grammatical oopses as well.
Its actually a very good story. Born out of spousal frustration that he keeps bringing me ideas that I don't write into stories.
It's like I've been trying to tell him - you have to write the story that's calling to you, and right now my mind's on Fucked.*
But maybe I should have passed his story over to someone else to do a critique? I guess if there's a sudden shortage of blog posts and you hear rumours of my untimely demise, we'll all have the answer!
I had to put up an extra blog post today, because James was so late with his, and then it was virtually a copy of my other post. So yet another man I've had to compensate for. Sheesh. It's so frustrating when you rely on a guy to meet your needs and he's off reading your manuscript or biking or having painful urination or something.
And, because every day should have a little treat to it, check this out. Sound on. And if you have a problem with procreation, you might not want to watch the last teency little bit.**
