Teachable Moments vs Toaster Ovens

No one really loses on “Jeopardy” or “Wheel of Fortune.” Do they?

Thanks to media-hungry sponsors even contestants who fail miserably by consistently guessing wrong leave stage with a toaster oven, some Dr. Scholl’s foot inserts, or the granddaddy consolation prize of all – an Olive Garden gift certificate.

The same rules apply to relationships. Or, so says the blogger Nando.  Nando

Even those relationships that crash, burn and leave us tattered and torn, come invaluable lessons. He describes those insightful moments post relationship when you realize that you can’t be with someone who drinks, snores or supported George Bush and deserve happiness after all as “Relationship Parting Gifts.”

Hmmm… Why can’t the “Relationship Parting Gift”  be cash?

Still, reading this had me quickly retracing some eye-opening events of past relationships, searching for the teachable moments.

Nice thought.  But I still prefer the “Jeopardy” system.

One response to “Teachable Moments vs Toaster Ovens

  1. Yeah, the lessons learned seen kind of a bummer of a parting gift, but think of all the pain and suffering you won’t have to deal with. Now that’s a gift that keeps on giving, right?
