THAT'S WHAT YOU GET FOR RUNNING WITH SCISSORS are absolutely, truly fabricated distortions of choices women can make in relationships with other people (PARTICULARLY MEN). At times, WE, the People (WOMEN), in order to form a more perfect union of love, create the idea of what WE (WOMEN) want because of the potential WE (WOMEN) think we see. In fact, the whole purpose of this book is to make you laugh at how truly fabulous our (WOMEN) imaginations can go. I mean really, do WE (WOMEN) think that WE (WOMEN) can change people? The only thing WE (WOMEN) can change is our underwear and some people (NASTY WOMEN) don't like doing that. WE (WOMEN) adapt to situations but it does not change who WE (WOMEN) really are.
The women in each story are people that can be recognized. Either you are one of the women or you know someone like one of the women. These women are NOT, I repeat, NOT VICTIMS. They are just people who are not totally in touch with reality due to temporary insanity caused by some outside entity that creates the illusion of love. There is no MALE BASHING in this book. All the men in the book presented themselves with honesty. They give each woman an opportunity to make mindful choices about how totally jacked up they are. (.was that a male bash? NO!)
Driven by lust and control, each woman forgets the advice given by our mothers and grandmothers that you CAN really get hurt by running with scissors. Applied to real life situations and see the warning signs. And if you still decide to run with scissors, well, then.that's what you get!
