Zero to Sixty

Last Thursday, while sharing dinner with AI and LA, AI shared this bit of wisdom about relationships (as told to her by our mutual friend DB).

"Relationships are like driving a car. When you try to go from zero to sixty in two seconds you have to grab the wheel hard and really work to control the car. When you are going that fast any pebble or bump in the road can make you swerve off into a ditch. When you accelerate to twenty, twenty to forty, and forty to sixty...the little pebbles and bumps in the road are easy to deal with and don't affect you much."

I thought this was pretty wise stuff and I thought I'd share it with y'all.

Counterpoint. Had a dream last night I was test driving a Ferrarri. The G Force was incredible, as we took the turns in Italy at a whopping 80 mph but have to say that afterwards I got out of the car unscathed and wondered what the fuss was all about.

It's all down to the bodywork and the engine but above all the driver is key. If you have a good mix of the above, it doesn't matter! ;-)
