Being a woman is going to be a lot harder than I imagined. You have to be ladylike at all times– sophisticated and poised no matter how badly you want to act otherwise. Take today, for instance. I’m walking down the street, holding a conversation with my best friend via cell phone, when this woman on the passenger side of a pick up truck yells out of her window, “You look nasty!”
Let me assure you, I was not looking “nasty”. True, I did have on my short shorts, but everything was covered, and I only weigh 100 pounds. And besides, was it really called for, her response to my shorts? You see, she is what we call a “hater.” Just because she wouldn’t wear something, or she wouldn’t look good in it, she felt the need to comment on my attire as if she’s Joan Rivers reviewing gowns worn to the Oscars.
If I was anything less than a woman in training, I would have yelled back, “How dare you, you huge, masculine-looking human vacuum cleaner?!” This woman thing is going to be a trial by fire, and I’m not so sure that I can handle too much more of it, because, honestly, if she were here right now, I’d punch her lights out! Grrr!(Read the footer. Peace!)
Stay tuned for another misadventure of this almost grown woman…until the next time, keep it true, no matter how many feelings truth hurts!
