I Cried Like a Little Girlie-Man-Girl

...Again.

I've become a veritable geyser. A salty geyser. Which goes well with my other status as a temporary ho.

Here's what's caused my latest eruption:

John Mayer's "Daughters"

I know a girl
She puts the color inside of my world
But she's just like a maze
Where all of the walls all continually change
And I've done all I can
To stand on her steps with my heart in my hands
Now I'm starting to see
Maybe it's got nothing to do with me

Fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Oh, you see that skin?
It's the same she's been standing in
Since the day she saw him walking away
Now she's left
Cleaning up the mess he made

So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Boys, you can break
You'll find out how much they can take
Boys will be strong
And boys soldier on
But boys would be gone without the warmth from
A woman's good, good heart

On behalf of every man
Looking out for every girl
You are the god and the weight of her world

So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

I never read lyrics when someone pastes them on a page. If you're the same, here's the gist: Daughters are as Fathers do.

I was talking with my mom and she informed me of a study that recently came out. It proclaimed that fathers are as important in a child's life as mothers.

Who the hell thought otherwise? Who the hell said that the role model of a man is not as influential in how the child interacts with the world in their present and future?

How sad that this is a revelation.
