Today's the last day in the "Do's & Don'ts" series, featuring tips on things couples should consider when in a relationship. I'll bullet these for clarity and emphasis.
1) Avoid riding in zeppelins. I hear exploding helium is not in vogue these days and I would hate for your relationship to go up in flames. Ha ha ha. [Serious face]
2) I'm not a big advocate of picking a song that couples can share. Most of the time it's "A Lifetime's Not Too Long To Live As Friends" or some bullshit like that. Play that at the divorce hearing, I say. No, but really, if you must pick one, okay--fine. But don't pick "I Love You Like A Love Song". That just doesn't compute in my cranium. Or you're just plain lazy. Could Shakespeare have inspired future generations with "Shall I compare thee to one of my previous sonnets?"
3) I don't have first-hand experience with this one, but don't let your mate pick your nose and vice versa. I ran into this cat at a Bay Area sporting goods shop who said she and her boy-toy do that. Seriously? Find a good book. Go and paint your own clay pot for an afternoon. Polish up any brass around the house.
4) Make sure your partner is getting enough fiber.
