I do, however, feel like this must be a metaphor for something
This is not germane to anything. Just so you know.
Nick asked me to hand him the scissors the other day.
And I know the proper way to pass a pair of scissors. You close them. You turn the blades toward you. And you hand them to the person handle first.
I know this. I do.
And yet, somehow, I thought it would be helpful to open then, and hand them to him, blades splayed apart, me gripping the handles. Like he'd be able to cut the box open faster this way or something.
Honestly. I gave this conscious thought. And went out of my way to open them first.
He was, not surprisingly, all, "Why are you doing that?"
"To be help...ful?"
Also, I had to try approximately 72 times to draw a pair of scissors that didn't look like testicles with two penises splayed in opposing directions. The drawing skills, they are lacking. In me.
