I was just thinking about the episode where Lorelai goes fishing with Alex. (Lorelai out of water. Yes, I actually looked up the episode title this time. Impressive eh?) Lorelai says she loves fishing. Sookie consoles her by telling her that she once told Jackson that she liked frogs & then Jackson started buying her frog figurines & all of Jackson’s family started buying her frog figurines & that is how she became frog girl. This inspired two thoughts:
1. Why do we always do that? Do we think a relationship will really come to an end if we don’t like fishing? Would we really want to be with such a guy anyway?
2. Why do boys think that the answer to such invitations will always be yes? I won’t go in the house if there is a spider in there. Yet, they always think I will love camping.
I have gone rappelling because some guy said “So do you like to do outdoors stuff?” I have gone fishing due to the same reason. Luckily when someone asks if I like hunting I can’t hold back an “Ewwww that is so wrong”. I’ve decided I’m not going to be frog girl anymore. From now on I’m going to say “No thank you, that is stupid.”
