Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend have made quite the literary name for themselves with their Boundaries series, in which they detail the. . .uh. . .boundaries that people ought to draw with significant others such as spouses, bosses, kids, etc.
I’m all about making, or even swindling, a literary name, and while I was reading Boundaries in Marriage for class today, I started daydreaming about infringing upon the Boundaries series with a list of titles that would be more appropriate for my particular stage of life, such as:
1. Boundaries with Homework: Learn how to spend your Saturday nights doing something non-academic and enjoying it.
2. Boundaries with Chocolate: Fruitless.
3. Boundaries with Music: How to stop listening to crap.
4. Boundaries with Bedtime: Or, “Just have one, already!”
5. Boundaries with Grammar: Stop texting people who use phrases like ‘ur’ and ‘lol’.
6. Boundaries with Sweatpants: Give your other clothes a chance.
7. Boundaries with Jobs: Five. Is. Enough.
8. Boundaries with Peanut Butter: Homegirl, you gots a problem.
9. Boundaries with Discontent: Your life is plenty green on this side, baby girl.
10. Boundaries with Procrastination: You’re never going to write these books, are you?
