Do walls build prisons? Do iron bars make a cage? by Joelle Giappesi

Richard Lovelace wrote this poem in 1642, in the Westminster Prison:

“Stone walls do not a prison make,

Nor iron bars a cage;

Minds innocent and quiet take

That for an hermitage;

If I have freedom in my love,

And in my soul am free,

Angels alone that soar above,

Enjoy such liberty.”

Note: Joelle Giappesi or Julie, is a Franco-Lebanese who was put in prison, condemned for 5 years firm, for repeated heroine addiction at the age of 43. “Walls do not make the prison” is not simply a fiction novel.

Mouth mush intelligence?

I’ll give you some examples of this phenomenon in my life with a table.

What He Said

What I Heard

What He Meant

You didn’t even tell me you were graduating cum laude today; that’s great. Why wasn’t it summa cum laude?” my Dad Hehe. Summa cum. Latin is dirty. You should have worked harder. A stunning display of mediocre effort. That’s really going to impress someone considering you for a job. I’m proud of you, but I know you are smart enough to have graduated with highest honors.
Slap! (On the butt while I was picking up toys on Valentine’s Day, 5 months postpartum). “Your ass is getting smaller!” my husband I find you disgusting. Keep working on it. You are losing weight and I’m attracted to you right now. Let’s get naked.
You can’t be a slave to your kid’s schedule. They need to fit into your life.”my oldest brother You really let your niece down by not coming to her cheerleading competition. Your baby is no excuse. Don’t miss out on important events in your niece’s life because of a nap schedule.
When you wear your hair down, it makes you look 10 pounds lighter instantly.” my step-Dad The way you wear your hair every day makes you look fat. Your hair looks good down. Until it turns into a squirrel tail when it dries.
“When have you ever killed a spider in this house?” my husband You don’t read my blog much and I try not to get my feelings hurt about that because I understand, but when you do this random comment is the one you’re focused on, andyou’re calling me a liar? I kill them when you aren’t here. Good enough? I’m joking about spiders. Yes, I hate them, but you don’t kill them for me while I stand on a table. Can I have my balls back?

I won’t go into much more detail, I think these examples are enough for you to relate to them, and hopefully add your own in the comments section.
