Just Because I Act Scared, Doesn’t Mean I Really Am

Every now and then we need to let these little bits of us play.

Scene: We see a spider and we overreact, calling for our hero to come slay the ugly beast! Hurry! Hurry! Come quick! GIANT spider!!!!!!! (there’s no such thing as a small spider, fyi).  Our hero dashes into the room, shouting for a tissue!  We toss a Kleenex in his (or her) direction and watch horrified as it flutters to the ground, out of his reach!  Hurry!!  It’s getting away!!!!  The hero dashes for the fallen tissue, spins, and squashes, er, VANQUISHES the foe!  We both sigh and look with disgust at the crumpled tissue.  Thank you honey, and you kiss.  Flush it, don’t toss it, ok?  I know! – end scene.

But it was just a little house spider, and though we feel a little guilty about its unnecessary death, we got what we needed, and that is reassurance that our hero still deems us worth saving.

Men, NEVER stop coming to your woman’s rescue.  Whether it’s a tiny house spider or a flesh eating zombie, always be her hero.

Women, NEVER stop asking to be rescued.  Men need to be our heroes every now and again and that’s a good thing.

Showing fear doesn’t mean you’re helpless.  Who shows up to calm your fears shows you who truly cares.

A man who won’t kill a spider for me will never be my man.

 

I should note, just in case anyone who knows me reads this, D kills all my spiders and centipedes if I ask him to : )

    I just found your blog and this bit of advice is pretty timely. I was planning on doing some minor household repairs my guy had promised to do and hasn’t gotten to yet. After reading this I’m reminded that he sometimes thinks he doesn’t contribute enough around the house, so I’ve suddenly become incapable of using a step ladder to get to where the work needs doing. 🙂

    My guy is more of the fixer type of hero, not the swooping-in swashbuckling kind. This is probably a good thing because I don’t do damsel in distress well. If I want a spider gone, it’s going to be gone NOW and there’s no man in the universe who can move quickly enough for that.
