Trim The Bonzai

Jewel was commenting that I'd still be in honeymoon fever for the next 4-5 months. "Good time to 'trim the bonzai'", she said. I was like, "what bonzai????"

According to Sue, this "proverb" was invented by Jewel which basically conveys the following message :

"To mould your husband to what you want him to be now, just like how you trim bonzai trees. When they grow their little pucuks, you trim, grow then trim, grow then trim until you get a perfect looking bonzai tree. And bonzai is just the way you want it to be. but remember you can no longer trim bonzai trees after they mature, as the branches get thicker and the stem grows outwards and out of control."

Hehehhee... Now how's that for an original proverb? Damn cute. But I have a problem. My bonzai tree is tall and built. How to trim ahhh??
