Dancing with wolves

Posted: April 26, 2007 in Quotes, Random

Dancing with wolves is better than sleeping with them.

Does that make any sense? Well it does if you know the how it is referenced. There are often things that are said in life that you will not understand unless you are in on the whole conversation or know the regional dialect. This particularly the case with everyday living here in the south.

My aunt taught me the saying, “The devil is beating his wife with the frying pan.” The first time I said this to my wife she had no idea what I was talking about. At the time I said that phrase it was raining and the sun was shining. Hence the frying pan is the clouds, stove fire is the sun, and the rain is the devil’s wife’s tears. Now I not sure who came up with that saying or when it was first said, but I bet some people had the same look of bewilderment that was on my wife’s face the first time it was said.

This leads me into what I wanted to talk about. I want people know that just because you don’t understand what someone is saying does not mean that it is not valid. I see a lot of people that get angry if you don’t want to conform to the mainstream way of thinking. If you have an independent mind it is not a bad thing. Some of the bright people history has known often thought outside-of-the-box and their brilliance is only realized months and years after the fact.

Now I’m not saying that the person that who thought up the frying pan saying is a genius. I am saying that once you break down the meaning of the phrase it seems very artistic in nature. It is not be the loveliest picture because it talking about domestic violence. It is a good example of creativity that may get misconstrued for backwoods ignorance, but now that you know the real meaning who is really ignorant?

Dancing with wolves is better than sleeping with them.
