Men are like the take-home pasta. When you go out to eat these days, the portions are insanely huge. Especially if you order the pasta. It always leaves me incredulous, when a plate of spaghetti and meatballs arrives with a pound of pasta on it. Inevitably, it is boxed up to be taken home, where a morning-after decision must be made. Are you going to eat the leftover pasta for the next four to five days just because you had a hankering for a spaghetti dinner, or throw it out?
The one-pound-box of pasta sitting in the fridge waiting to be eaten is like many of my recent man-decisions. Why in God’s name did I think they were “take home?”
That part of your brain that causes obesity can also kick in when in the presence of a certain type of man. You KNOW they will not be good for you, yet you indulge anyway because your Girl “Blood-Sugar” is low.
“I just need a little something,” your Libido tells you. Next thing you know, it’s morning and he’s asking if you have an extra bath towel and a sweatshirt that might fit him as he eats the scrambled eggs and toast you made him.
Remember yesterday night when he was just a safe fling cause he was a friend of a friend meant to be a one-off? How did that lead to you staring at his kinda greasy face across your breakfast table?
Tsk tsk. Why are you home-wrecking your own home??? Here you are, the gal finding your new empowered Wonder-Womany life and you have just made eggs for a man you wanted out of your space last night! Do you see now how men are like the take-home pasta?
There are numerous lessons here. We are the culprits of our own life circumstances. Here’s the biggest “should’ve” in this whole story: I never should have taken the pasta home. When it comes to sex, let’s face it – there are no “never-ending breadsticks.” These are all decisions to be made before you leave the restaurant. When it comes to the pasta and the cute friend of your friend, please, for your own sake, skip the to-go box!!
