two truths.

1) i have any man of mine by shania twain on my ipod. and i like it. on one level, this horrifies me - it is corporate-packaged country, it has lyrics that manage to cram every female stereotype into four minutes of music, and christ on a bike, it's shania twain. and yet, i cannot help myself.

2) it's really creepy when a guy walks down the street with his girlfriend, and instead of holding her hand, he holds the back pocket of her jeans. creepy on a "too much PDA" level, and creepy on a "unneccessary control of personal space that isn't his" level. creepy all around, boys, so stop it.

Is it any consolation, re: #2, that my ex-girlfriend sometimes did that to me? Le sigh.

I was just going to say something similar. When I'm feeling spunky I do that to MY guy.

What I hate more than the hand-in-butt-pocket move, is the hand-around-neck move or arm-around-neck move. Notice I don't say "shoulders," but "neck." Makes me want to put my hands around their necks...

I only do that to screw with my girlfriend, because she agrees with you. But yeah, I wouldn't really do it seriously. It's just kind of weird.

Love the expression "Christ on a Bike." Am already trying to work it into conversation. Thank you!
