No One’s Gonna Love You – Cee Lo Green
Those of you who are afraid of commitment, I have one piece of advice for you. Stay away, far away, as far away as you can from weddings. Don’t get me wrong (BATMAN), weddings are a beautiful joyous event that should be celebrated, I love open bars, dance floors, and free food. O man do I love free food.
But for those people who have been in a relationship for a lil too long and are at that age… you know what i’m talkin about, weddings are the worst place to be. Nothing good can come of it. Let me explain how this works. (BATMAN) I noticed a recent trend among my friends that had recently got engaged (I feel like I’m in scooby doo explaining how we caught the bad guys), that many of the couples themselves had recently attended another persons wedding. In combination with my recent thesis topic, I’ve realized that it’s this little thing called “Salience” that is triggering the spread of this virus. And yes it is a virus, see for yourself:
What starts out as simple shampoo, conditioner and body wash spreads into body lotion, shaving gel, razor, facial moisturizer, face wash, leave in conditioner, and a stuffed pig? But again, my ADHD is taking over, how does attending a wedding lead to your own wedding? Easy, Salience (I think I said this already). It’s like inception, except you’re awake. It plants this little idea seed of weddings and marriage in your head, one that you can’t really get rid of, the more you try to not think about weddings, the more you think about it. “pink elephant”, those simple words make you imagine a pink elephant. Same thing, after you attend a wedding, you’ll be thinking about weddings more and more and then you’ll think, (BATMAN) “Hey, I bet you half of my stuff that I can stay with one woman/man the rest of my life” (how’s that for gender equality, I put the woman first!). Friends don’t like friends gamble away their awesome entertainment system unless I’m the one getting half your stuff But let’s see salience in action, I’m sure you’ve noticed the randomly placed “BATMAN”s around, not look at the photo below and tell me what you see (this is rhetorical, I cannot actually hear what you’re saying):
Most of you likely saw the two batmen facing each other first, even though the image of wolverine if front and center, and that’s because I’ve been making “batman” salient in your mind making it much easier to conjour up the idea of batman instead of wolverine.
How’s that for a psych lesson! (FTEW)
