Does Strength Equal Stupidity?
So I was driving along yesterday and I happen to notice a nice looking, okay, Hawt! guy on a motorcycle next to me. Yes, I was quite lucky indeed. He wore jeans, a t-shirt, and sexy Keds on his feet. He had a firm chin, soft lips-perfect for long kisses and his hair was dark and wind-blown... He reminded me of my hero in The Challenge.
Wait... wind-blown? How do I know this? You guessed it, no helmet.
Now, this blog isn't about the foolishness of riding a bike, sans helmet. Nope, I'll let his significant other handle that topic. Today I was wondering - when writers of the paranormal creatures such as shapeshifters, vamps and the rest of our special heroes and heroines, give our characters indestructibility, does stupidity somehow sneak in too?
I know I'm guilty of making my characters somewhat fool hardy, at least in my mind I do, cause I really love to see a guy like Mr Hawtness on a sweet chopper bucking safety and society by letting the wind blow through his sexy, disheveled locks even though the road rash from one single fall could and would probably be deadly. Or maybe jumping from airplanes-free falling darn near to the ground and only then, hoping the chute will open, climbing mountains with big guns strapped to their backs, taking charge and kicking ass....Oh My!
Must get back on topic... My question then is this. If we give them all this strength, does it automatically infuse in them the stupidity to risk themselves, would a safety first male be as sexy or maybe it's not stupidity just the traits of an alpha male?
What do you think?
Have a great weekend!
