You can lead a horse to water...

I may have mentioned the conversation my girls and I had a couple of years ago regarding what can only be referred to as “The Dating Horse.” I don’t remember the exact conversation – so girls, set me straight – but the gist was that they were trying to get me to move on from my boyfriend. To “get back on the horse,” if you will.

In true A-List style, we couldn’t just leave it at that. There were references to “beating a dead horse” and other increasingly inappropriate horse and/or riding references, and when the conversation ended, I was standing up, shaking my fist in the air at the imaginary dating horse and yelling “F*** you, horse!” Because frankly, I did not want to get back on at that particular time. Again, one of those moments that you really just had to be there. And at the same time, a moment when maybe you wouldn’t want to be there.

At any rate, it’s been a recurring joke/theme ever since. Anyway, in honor of the recent, ahem, adventures that we’ve had in the dating realm, I thought it would be appropriate to do a stick drawing of what I feel depicts each of our experiences. Therefore, I present to you “The Dating Horse.”



So yeah. Wish us luck.

That's no stick drawing. That's better than I could do after paying 30 grand a year for art school!

That's why I'm never getting married again. I'll just find a, um, horse I don't like and buy her a house.

Marie said...

LOL! I am a huge fun of your stick drawings. You summed it up so well here. And believe me, I'm not a fan of the dating horse either. lol

Miladysa said...

I have posted your interview questions :)

I beleive mine would have a horse crapping on me.

Amanda said...

wait, this is awesome. i love the rendering, is this your work, amber? i'd be the one either being thrown by the really handsome stallion; or the one who has totally broken in the gentle but not too exciting horse, then never wants to ride him again. erg.

Giddyup! (I would tell you to ride 'em, but that might be construed as vaguely pornographic and rather naughty.....but there it is, a moment too late to retract!)

Alice said...

that is GREAT. i vote you bring us at least one new stick figure drawing a week :-D

hmm.. i guess my relationship with the horse would be one of sheer terror for a long time, until i'd had enough and manhandled the damn thing until i was on top. yeah. :-)
