9 March 2013

And on that dark note, we kick off another Sardonic Saturday on The Daily Quota - where every silver lining has a cloud!

Today's Daily Quota is a short piece by Charles Warnke titled You Should Date an Illiterate Girl.
He provides advice for young men looking for love - avoid a girl who is well-read, as she will make you feel inferior, she will force you to grow as a person, and she will force you out of your comfort zone.
Instead, you should opt for the scripted life - a shallow mutual interest, a brief chase, a cliched proposal and a blissful life of work, mortgage, divorce and death.

This work stands as a satirical omen against pursuit of the easy, the ignorant. 
Pursuing the girl who challenges you will pull you, reluctantly, out of your comfort zone.

Are you man enough to pursue the girl who reads, or do you settle for the easy path into the scripted eulogy?
A very Robert Frost-like dilemma. Will the road less travelled by make all the difference?
Here is a great extract from this piece:
A girl who reads lays claim to a vocabulary that distinguishes between the specious and soulless rhetoric of someone who cannot love her, and the inarticulate desperation of someone who loves her too much.A vocabulary, god damnit, that makes my vacuous sophistry a cheap trick.
Well, shit. Ain't that the story of my life.
Back to the drawing board.
