Relationships & Elephants

Things are never as they seem.

Over the past few years I’ve discovered that new relationships are somewhat like opening presents at a white elephant party where only half of the guests know about the ‘white elephant’ part. Sometimes you open an ill-wrapped and slightly-crumpled envelope, not expecting much, and instead find that you’ve just been given up close and personal tickets to see U2 live (in Atlanta, on October 6 . . . not that I’m excited or anything). Other times, you reach for a package that has all of the markings of something great and you’re really excited about discovering what’s inside . . . and then sadly, you find out that it was yet another pretty box filled with toilet paper and old socks.

You win some, you lose some. Así es la vida.
