Hax of the Day  

I am stunned and amazed by this metaphor.  Carolyn Hax, talking about whether or not married couples should avoid the friendship of attractive singles and their tempting hott dating stories:
If the only way you can keep your boat from sinking is to put it in dry dock, then that's a choice you and your husband need to make together, I would suggest after as open a discussion as possible.  If your boat really is leaking, I also wouldn't suggest blaming it all on the ocean.

Screw that. We just boink other people together.

I hate to have to be the one to say this, but...

Wow, I could stand to lose a lot of friends if the married couples I know started doing that. I mean, I'm carefully quiet about the nonmonogamy but I'm not secretive... clearly I'm a threat.

And yeah, don't blame the ocean if you haven't a) waterproofed your damn boat or b) come to a mature and truly consensual agreement about, er, scuppering other people.

*giggles* Scuppering. Heh heh.

Eek! I don't want to be scuppered!

I've heard it as "Don't curse the breeze if you can't keep your trousers on.".

Although for other commentary with regard to the *positive* merits of leaky boats...
