To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do Not Resuscitate?

Sometimes I forget that Jackie is not Mormon. And, that she did not go to BYU. And, that although she says awesome things like "Is she in our ward?" or "Can we kick him out of the ward?", she often doesn't know all the Mormon vernacular that I assume she does.

The other day we were talking about something or someone and I used the acronym DTR, which, now that I think of it, is something I have only ever heard Mormons say. DTR = Define The Relationship. And, as you can imagine, guys HATE DTRs.

Anyhooo.... I said something to the effect of ' and so was having a DTR...' and Jackie said "Do not resuscitate?!?"

After much laughter, I decided that from now on, in my world, these so-called conversations where girls want to know what part of their relationships are of any use the them and boys just mainly want to run for the hills or as one guy said to me once "I feel like I am going to throw up!" will hereby be known as DNRs - because let's face it, that's basically what happens to the relationship after you have the DTRs.

Pretty funny and pretty true.

I love Jackie and I've never even met her. DNR is so true. Is there any way I can read your posts while I'm gone?! I love all of them.
