heart broke? nope...

Kaia asked me yesterday...

"What does it mean when someone breaks up with you?" (remember her boyfriend Anthony)

"It means you aren't boyfriend and girlfriend anymore. Why?"

"'Cause Anthony broke up with me the other day." (she is coloring, perfectly happy)

"Oh! Why did he break up with you?" (do I really want to pursue this conversation?!)

"He doesn't love me anymore" (still coloring, she says this quite nonchalantly, still quite happy)

"Oh. Well. umm... you okay?" (shouldn't I not being having this conversation until she's, oh, say, THIRTY!?!)

"Yep! How do you draw a bunny?"

I think it is in the human nature to always want to improve on your self and the things around you. There is a line from "Fight Club" "Self-improvement is masturbation" and I think this applies to everything weather it be going to the gym to look batter or buying that shiny bobble to adorn something you already treasure it is a means to feel better about yourself and your situation. I am very bad about always wanting to buy something new or get some new training to improve my knowledge about my job. If we didn't constantly strive to improve we would all still be living in caves and running around naked because we wouldn't wouldn't have had the intuition to make clothing!
