Over the past couple of months I have seen an interesting trend when viewing the statistics of this site. At least once a week, someone is redirected to this site from Google after having done a search for "meaning of running with scissors" or something very similar. Due to this phenomena, I wanted to be a good internet citizen and provide you with the definition you are searching for.
I was tempted to offer said definition at the end of this blog post and make you read through some things I really want to say to you, but I'm not going to do that. I will simply ask that you take a minute or two to check out some of the other posts on my blog, and maybe even leave a comment or two.
I also wanted you to know that I have prayed specifically for those of you who found your way here in this manner.
Without further ado, here is my definition.
Running with Scissors:
1. A common American colloquialism which means to live life in such a way that you coherently recognize the inherent dangers of your actions, yet you participate/perform said actions nonetheless. (see "You'll poke your eye out")
2. A recent book which passes itself off as literature but which really depicts the troubled young life of it's author by using descriptions of pedophelia and homosexuality so graphic that I can not think of this book without physical revulsion. Hollywood has of course embraced it and made an "award winning" movie.
