Two Kinds

All that stuff about two kinds of people in the world. Harumph. Then again, I suppose there are people who believe that there are two kinds of people in this world and those who don't.

There certainly are folks who fall in love and folks who don't. I am convinced that we all believe fervently that we are a part of the bunch who do. I mean we've all read the novels, seen the movies. Everybody knows how to act, what to do.

Accuse someone of lacking the capacity for romantic love and you've insulted them. It's as though you imply that you're a better human being. Fact is, though, those folks get off avoiding a whole lot of suffering. There's a reason all those songs and poems about love hurting are out there.

Okay, there are two types of people. The ones who seek thrills. Roller coasters, hang gliding, mountain climbing. Lots of us don't.

Maybe I should have gone in for bungee jumping.
