Influence

I noticed that Diana says "fuck" a lot more than she used to. I remember when we first met I was cautious about using it around her, because I know not everyone is comfortable with its frequent use. (Fuck them, right? ;)) But over time, I know I use it a lot more around her, and frankly for me it just helps me blow off steam. But it's funny to hear it come out of her mouth, I guess because she's too cute to use such naughty words.

Diana suggests that she causes me to slack. However, I've always been pretty good at just doing that on my own. Usually when she influences me, it's for the better. Like she talked me into getting my lazy ass out to spread fertilizer this morning. That was a big win.

People affect people in all kinds of ways. I guess the hardest thing to do is realize when someone affects you in a negative way, or thank them when it's in a positive way.

She used to say, "God Bless America" in place of swearing on the courts. Haven't heard her say that in a long time...it's been replaced with Fuck. Now, personally, I don't mind, but this could cost us points in league play. I think we need to do something about this before it becomes a real problem. Perhaps we can write a letter to the leauge suggesting they change their fucking rule.
