There are some things people cannot know, because once they learn them, they are no longer secrets. “See, the problem is that God gives men a brain and a penis, and only enough blood to run one at a time.”

Recently, I entered into negotiations with the rest of my family, with regard to bringing in a digital cable box. Now I'd sworn I'd never bring one into the house because I believed it would cause infighting. My wife prevailed, we had it installed on one TV, but now we have to get another one. My oldest son needs to have one for his entertainment center, now. So our cable bill is going up substantially, my wife and kids won, and I caved in completely. All in all, I'd have to say the negotiations went rather well.

Hmmmmm....to begin negotiations common need/wants/desires must be found AND there must be some sort of flexibility, a willingness to compromise. The best I've able to accomplish is a great rate for my credit cards (2 1/2 to 4 1/2) Big deal.
But negotiations in relation to my near monastic non-sex life - I'm at a loss as how to get the intransigents to the table. Maybe it's too uncomfortable?. If you lived about 200 miles closer I'd feel confident we could negotiate into informal piece talks.

"piece talks - ha! snork!

no long distance dealie-bobs for me, nope, I'm into 7/11 convenient..."

SO you're nun in a part time convent? Well that explains a lot.
Actually, I had an LDR between Humboldt and San Diego that lasted about 6 gloriously frustrating months. But those long weekends we did get together, we had fun, fun, fun and kept the neighbors awake - say "Hallelujah!" Then she moved to Toledo, Ohio! We had negotiated a lot but couldn't negotiate Toledo - sigh. Don't blame ya for wanting the convenient - glorious frustration is good for only so long and then it's exile to Toledo.

"...nun in part time convent?"

Sorry. "7/11 convenience" into - part time(7/11) - convent from convenient. Proof that abstruse attempts at word play go THUD.

"nope, not alone, I don't reveal everything here"

Ahhh ... an element of Silky mystery added to the mix.

"Toledo? hmmmmm must have been work-related"

Sort of - She came into some money (quite a story in itself) and decided she couldn't retire with it in California so she bought properties in Toledo because they are dirt cheap and she would be near her family. The idea was to live on the rents. She found out that the properties were cheap because they are in a bad part of a not so nice rust belt city. I miss the fun we had together, but not Toledo.

Why does confusion always come at the wrong time? It ought to be against the law for anybody to have too little of anything really good.

    Quoting rm_silkditty:
    in the big scheme of things, confusion arrives at the time it should

    ya know?
Haven't you got anything better to do than attempt to communicate or negotiate?
