Montecristo Captain Quixote

With apologies to Bonnie Raitt

Don't worry Baby,
It ain't nothin' new,
That's just wisdom,
Sneakin' up on you.

Question: What is more sobering than the realization that one may be leading a woman into temptation?
Answer: The realization that she is in no danger of succumbing to it.

Sometimes, Reason wakes up and pads back into the consciousness center, still yawning and rubbing her eyes, and kicks over a few empty bottles of ambrosia and looks at Mr. Heart and asks: "What the heck has been going on in here?"

Is it wrong to giggle?

That's a cute and sweet entry!

It sounds like you have a unique situation on your hands.

I mean there you are "tempting" this poor, helpless creature, and it turns out that she has noted that you are appealing, but has strength that you didn't account for.

Whatever the case, life is funny sometimes. We tear ourselves up for all sorts of reasons-- when there is NO NEED to tear ourselves to begin with.

I could learn a lesson from this too!

Be NICE to yourself,dear. And I'll make you a promise I'll be nicer to myself too. It'll be a pact.

If it's wrong I don't wanna be right! Heh. Giggle away; you'll be in good company, myself included. Your gentle advice has always been good for me, even if I don't always have it figured out immediately. Even so, I never figured the woman for "helpless." Sheesh, far from it. Who wants helpless? I don't think I was underestimating her; I'm well aware of her admirable strengths! I was just misreading the circumstances. I know, I know, you told me so! As Paul Simon sang:

All lies in jest,
Still a man hears,
What he wants to hear,
And disregards the rest.

As for your last three sentences, they sound like a good deal too. Heh.
