max schulman's Love is a Fallacy (reaction)

The story love is a fallacy was a very interesting and a funny story. .It was very funny that the girl was already as clever as the guy in the end. Well,that story implied that patience is truly a virtue. I really appreciate the guy because of his patience that he showed to the girl. Though there is a time that he wanted to give up, but still, he continue teaching Polly Espy to make her his perfect wife to be and he really did a great job but he never win a date with Polly because he is already with Petey Bellows just because he had a racoon coat? What is with the racoon roat that made Polly Espy to date with Petey Bellows?It was also very funny that Polly chose Petey,who was very dumb than the Mr.Intelligent guy who is,obviously, intelligent.
In the story, the fallacies were defined and explained well. The story was really well organized. If you can read it, you will surely understand it well. You can really identify or define the characters in the way they are shown in the story. Like the Mr. intelligent guy who is really shown that he is a real intelligent one because as you can read the story, he teaches Polly Espy about the fallacies like Dicto Simpliciter, Hasty Generalization, Post Hoc, Contradictory Premises, Poisoning the Well and many more. as i said, these fallacies were really explained well.
I really feel sad for Mr. Intelligent who is really so patient in teaching those Fallacies to Polly Espy but he did not win her. He had a hard time teaching Polly Espy those fallacies but he did get the best return from Polly which is her. He also did something wrong because he was confident that Petey will choose the racoon coat because of his being stupid.In the end, Mr.Intelligent realizes that he made a mistake.But well, his mistake has done good to others. He made Poly Espy intelligent like him.
I was also amazed by the intelligence of Mr. Intelligent of course. as described in the story,his brain was as powerful as a dynamo, as precise as a chemist's scales, as penetrating as a scalpel. And as you read these descriptions, we can really see that he is really an intelligent one. He was just eighteen but he already knew about these things. Things to be used in reasoning out during court trials. Petey Bellows, for me however, really loves Polly. He wants a raccoon coat because he wants to be with Polly. I think, he already knows about Polly's interests- Big Men in the university so he decided to choose the raccoon coat instead of Polly at the first place because he already knew that time. Poor Man! He didn't know that Petey is somewhat wise. He used his brain well this time even though he was described in the story as dumb as an ok a nice enough fellow, you understand, but nothing upstairs, Emotional type, Unstable, Impressionable, Worst of all, a faddist. He is an oppisite person from Mr. Intelligent, right?
In this story, we can get so may thing. As I said we can get patience and most of all LOVE is not as easy as one....... two....... three....... and ABC. We need the brain to think.....and think.....and think the right thing to do.
