Drawbridge officially down

I recently had a little Gchat with a friend of mine that has been stuck in my head for a couple days. To give you some context, this friend is a man who is married to a close girlfriend of mine...How we got on this line of talk isn't important.

Me: I'm ready for my knight in shining armor :)

Friend: haha. well, while you're looking for that knight, it's always best to let down the draw bridge....I have no idea what that means. it's probably a metaphor

Me: oh the castle door is wide open

Friend: hahaha. i heart your rhetoric

Me: i even drained the moat.

Friend: hahaha

Me: I'm done with the frogs. the single world is a treacherous medieval wasteland.

Friend: grass is always greener on the other side. single life is easy...i'm not saying married life is hard cuz [wife] is the balls, but I'm trying to be optimistic for you.

There are lots of things I love about this conversation:

1. Speaking in fairtytale metaphor about my personal life. Let's just go ahead and pretend its going to be a fairtytale.

2. My friend's husband refers to her as "the balls." Hilarity for lots of reasons.

3. I got the piece of advice to "let down the draw bridge." I don't know what that means, but I think it's a debauchery free pass.

So single women of the internet, I have it on good authority that we can all let down our draw bridges. Interpret it as you will, but that's what I call VALIDATION.

Perhaps a be-spectacled, semi-sarcastic princess is the type I'm emerging to be...

Well, just thoughts. Happy Wednesday night!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
