What A Man Wants
Once upon a time, two little couch potatoes were sitting in the living room doing their most favourite routine, watching TV. Lets call them A and B. Extreme Makeover was showing, much to the delight of B, because that means lots of interesting scoop with lots of boobs! And true enough, it was very interesting. However, it was thought-provoking too, with many women requesting nose jobs, chin lifts, boob jobs, tummy tucks, face reconstruction and the works, supposedly to make themselves feel more worthy of their spouses' love. A was obviously distressed. Whatever has happened to all the cliche one-liners, Love is blind, I love you for who you are, and all the very hyped up discussions about inner beauty?
So, A turned to B and said,
"Isn't it ironic? What if you have a girlfriend whom you love very much. She is ordinary looking, not that pretty, but still, you fell in love with her for who she is and how she looks. She is perfect as she is. Then one day, she goes and get herself a complete makeover and comes back looking like Angelina Jolie. What would you do??"
A was very distraught. She was hoping that B could give her some kind of an answer that would at least restore a little bit of her faith in the goodness of mankind.
B looked at A and said,
"If she comes back looking like Angelina Jolie, then what's the problem??"
