From my own experiences, in addition to other people’s, from what I read on blogs and the like, this proverb becomes intensely relevant to our relationships with our parents.
Me: She’s an ice queen. She’s scary because when you look into her eyes, it’s so cold that you see penguins.
Him: Penguins are cute, though.
Me: DEAD PENGUINS.
Me: Penguins that have frozen to death because THAT’S HOW COLD SHE IS.
Me: IT KILLS PENGUINS, which are acclimated to very cold temperatures.
Him: Okay, I got it, stop making me think of dead penguins, that’s depressing.
I find that I often put off blogging a lot because I don’t want to write something bad
This happens especially when I have a big post in mind (super fun weekend, lots of opinions…) and I know it may take a little more work to do things like inserting my photos, getting links in, etc.
I’ll try to focus on JUST UPDATING. I hope the quality of my posts doesn’t suffer in the meanwhile… =/
(Also, I will finish that letter challenge! Honest!)
