I’ve noticed my boyfriend and I go on a roller coaster within our relationship that we just continue to ride over and over and over again. It goes a little something like this:
The Happy Bunny Love Stage: I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE TOTALLY AMAZING, HOW DID I EVER LIVE WITHOUT YOU?!?!?! LETS SHARE ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING SUPER THAT HAPPENS IN OUR LIVES AND ABSOLUTELY EVERY WONDERFUL EMOTION WE HAVE ABOUT EACH OTHER!!!!! GGGGAAAHHHHH, DID I MENTION I LOVE YOU?!?! WE’RE HAPPY BUNNIES!!!
The Neutral Stage: You’re totally AOK dude. I really enjoy our time spent chillin’ together. Lets rent a video and order Pad Thai tonight.
The Please-Don’t-F’in-Talk-To-Me and How-Did-We-Ever-End-Up-Together? Stage: Yeah… I know I said it was cute when you did that last week, but it’s really starting to annoy me now. Actually I think YOU’RE just starting to annoy me. Can you, like, go stand outside for about an hour while I have some me-time? No, no you don’t have to talk to me as you go, just go.
So as you may have guessed, my dude and I are currently in the most hostile of the three stages (and have been for the past two weeks) and I’m wondering if the Happy Bunny Love Stage will ever show its floppy ears again. I’m starting to worry the bunny may have been shot in the crossfire of one of our recent arguments and then baked by me in a stew (because I hate to waste anything – especially food) and then insulted by my boyfriend (because the stew was probably too salty, or not salty enough, or something else nitpicky and ridiculous).
Stay tuned to see if we both make it to next week or if one of us will have murdered the other and cooked them in a stew with the bunny by then.
