My friend see's herself as a "grenade." What do you say to something like that? Where did this come from?
All I said is I don't go the whole nine-yards when I get ready to go out anymore, and this friend of mine I met in college tells me that I should because girls like her supposedly are "the grenade," and she tells me she's accepted it as some sort of necessary persona. Like the social mingling order of college life would collapse if she didn't see the value in letting people walk all over her- so it seems.
She was telling me she had a really bad roommate experience before she moved into her recent living situation, but the damage is done. I was speechless, I had never heard of this in my life, and actually started nerding out on the subject thereafter, in a sort of Folklore research project. It was so depressing, I just had to stop. What on earth started this?
