Two's company and six is a crowd

Good thought from A.Word.A.Day:

"Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him, and each man as he really is."
-William James, psychologist and philosopher (1842-1910)

Have you seen the movie The Story of Us? There is a scene in the movie based on this principle. It's hysterical. I highly recommend the movie. Definitely not for kiddos, but a great one for married couples. Bring a BIG box of tissues. Thinking about the movie makes me cry.

I haven't seen the movie. I checked out some of the Amazon reviews. It looks interesting. I'll keep an eye out for it.
