But there was no duck. And now they want to kill Beau to cover up their mistake.
Please read Michele Kearns' post on this, and please share it.
Please. Please show that our country is better than this.
And now, here we are fort Five-Minute Friday , hosted by Kate Motaung. The challenge is to write for five minutes on a given "theme word", posted by Kate on Thursday night...and then stop when the timer dings.
We are also linking with The Weekend Brew.
Today's word is share..
Men do not like to share their feeling. No, really?
It's almost a cliche - "He won't tell me what he's thinking! I don't know how he feels!"
Well, there may be a simple reason. He doesn't know how he feels, either.
The male character is sometimes simplified to food, sex, and sport, and that is not entirely inaccurate. It's part nature, part nurture.
The nature part is in the designed role as provider and protector; Men are trained to act, and to react. Their feelings don't really play a role, and can indeed be detrimental in some situations ("Hey, I really shouldn't kill this lion...I mean, he has a family to feed, too, right?").
That really doesn;'t work, so the male mind has been designed with shutters that can effectively drop, shutting out feelings "for the duration".
And society reinforces this. I recently heard a Christian comedian - female - who said she was asked where all the handsome, sensitive men are.
Her reply? "They';re out there, and they all have boyfriends."
Kind of hard to overcome that. You're sensitive, you share your feelings, you're gay.
What's a wife to do?
Pick up on clues. Look at what you'r husband's reading; look at the movies he prefers. There are feelings there, whether he will admit it or not (dont worry, he won't).
And you know what? It doesn't matter, because once you can make that interprative jump, you can understand that beneath the caveman persona, there beats the heart of...
...well, a caveman.
But one with feelings.
