one could say that settling with one's first love is much like wearing the same dirty (yes: pooped in) diaper for one's entire life.
discussion: is this comparison accurate? what comparison would be more accurate?
bernadette: oh, come on. the idea that you can find a diaper that you really like when you're only in high school is very romantic.
omnicollective: That's a good point. And if it's one of those cloth diapers, you can wash it.... but you'll never get the stains out.
bernadette: and isn't that the best part? the stains will always be there through everything.
brett: I think it's more like getting your leg stuck in a bear trap. And then celebrating the day your leg got stuck in a bear trap year after year.
omnicollective: Also a good point. I should have guessed that you would show up and bring bears into this mess. I was going to counter you by asking 'but what good is a bear trap?' But then you could have countered saying 'what good is a diaper.' Then I would have said 'Touche, my friend. well played. Any fool can see, a bear trap is good for the one who sets it - just as wearing a diaper is good for the one who shits it.'
joel: Always thinking two or three steps ahead in any discourse... that's my dear Aspen. Let me ask you: What's the difference between the same old pooped-in diapers of your youth and a brand new pair that you'll poop in the first chance you get?
omnicollective: um..... do you still wear diapers?
joel: Only when I'm making love...
stacy: life is like a dirty pooped in diaper. you poop, you change it because it stinks, you feel great about the change, and then you poop again....it's a vicious cycle, but the change part is always the best...it makes up for the poop.
