Why you should not try to psycho-analyze your friends. Ever.

Friend: What’s your favorite animal ever?
Me: Why?
Friend: Just tell me.
Me: But, seriously, why do you need to know this?
Friend: I’m going to show you a cool psychological trick- trust me!
Me: Fine, a lion.
Friend: Great. Why?
Me: They’re brown and furry, love. love. love. the furriness. And the big fuzzy head of hair. Plus they’re the ruler of the animal kingdom and they have this quiet calm, like they’re so mafia. It’s like you want to give them a hug even though you know if you did they’d eat you up and spit out the bones. I mean they’re cats, but they can kill you. Awe-inspiring and frightening. What’s the psychological twist to this?
Friend: Um, they did this study that. . . you know what, never mind.
Me: You have to tell me now!
Friend: The traits you assign your favorite animal are the traits you um, possess yourself.

Aisha: Furry. Fuzzy. Frightening. Hug at own risk.
Yep, that about covers it.

Psycho-analysis: #FAIL

  1. Wow… now I am trying to think what my favourite animal is. I do like the tiger (but of course) but I also have a soft corner for monkeys… and I am a cat person…. hmm.


  2. Susan, its how I'd want to be remembered, lol πŸ™‚

    Mezba, Tiger's not favorite?! Shocking!!

    Aamina, you be quiet you. I'll be seeing you soon. Don't want to suffer the consequences do you??? >:< <-- That's my scary look. Thanks Anon! If anyone is reading these comments, I was considering putting up a picture on the side bar so people know I'm who I am and not a man named Frank or something. You think I should go with this pic perhaps? Or aim higher?


  3. wow! you're beautiful! (not that you're writing makes me think otherwise…but, i dont think i've seen a photo of you on here recently…err…) let's just go with the first statement!


  4. OK i definitely clicked subscribe to this comment and nothing went to my gmail. That comment luv thing you installed, is it still there? Maybe it's messing it up. I saw some other posts on my reader too that isn't there on this blog.


  5. Really? That's so weird. Intense debate is HORRID. They have great customer service and they tried to fix the problem but I had the same errors in my other blog too- stay away from anything like that. I hope that this isn't because of it. I checked my settings- everything appears as it should. Thanks for letting me know!


  6. This cracked me up! And I believe every word of the analysis πŸ™‚

    A friend of mine said his favorite animal is a chicken, because it's delicious. And that was pretty much true about him as well. πŸ™‚


  7. Julia, yes, fun to think about but not to live by! lol. It was just funny because she then asked other people the same question, but they were all actually dead-on. Go figure πŸ™‚

    Awomanmyage, lol! Thank you, you're so sweet πŸ™‚

    Baraka, do you now???? Great. My cousin and one of my dearest friends concurs wholeheartedly with my unwitting self-appraisal. Ah well. LOL @ the chicken remark!


  8. no! not furry and fuzzy! and lucky to have the privilege of being hugged by!! what a ridiculous way to analyze someone's personality. usually when i think of lions i think of strong and big hearted anyway, not necessarily furry and fuzzy.


  9. Murgdan, lol, yes this is getting ridiculous, our kids will be off to college at the rate we're going. Sniff. College. I'm not crying. It's allergies. Really. Will e-mail you but please e-mail me if my scatterbrained self forgets somehow!

    Kate, lol, thanks πŸ™‚ And I totally should have said strong and big-hearted. D'oh πŸ™‚


  10. And that's a great pic – perfect for the sidebar.

    And thanks for the comment about my kitties on my blog – I really appreciate hearing I'm not the only one who's had to do that!


  11. Banshee, lol glad you did πŸ™‚ Thanks for your input on the picture πŸ™‚ I'm sorry about your cats 😦 I can relate and its one of the most painful things I've done.


  12. Also, I don't know why it is, but when I comment on your blog from work, I always have to try to post my comment about three times before it actually works. I didn't have this problem at home…before my computer died, of course! This probably says something about the lack of security on my home computer!


  13. lol Raising, when I saw “Hang Over” I was jealous at the hangout they got to do with the Tiger- not a lion, but close enough I say! As for commenting- what happens? Does it eat your comment? Not let ou post it at all? And, is this a relatively recent thing or always happened? I installed a commenting system a few weeks back [you might recall a silly amount of RSS feeds about it showing up] and I've heard people are having some issues since. . .


  14. I meant the graceful, adorablicious, huggable, fiercely loving parts of a lion. Though you *know* we Pakis are hairy, my mafia friend. We gotta just own it!

    You look beautiful in the pic, btw!

    Hugs! (Hope I don't get eaten πŸ˜‰


  15. Yes. We must own the truth. I remember your post years back on the topic of desi manes. Ah well! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the sweet comment on the pic! πŸ™‚ No bites, only hugs for one of my favorite people πŸ˜‰


  16. Hey Aisha…I think that it is a security issue. It always says that my credentials aren't recognized. I have to hit preview and then post several times, and then it works. It never did this on my home computer…just work.
