I like this quote. It's fitting. Especially for woman.
I was at a function a week or two ago where there were a lot of people I didn't know. My husband and I sat with a group of our close friends and had a wonderful time. The subject of this blog "Denise's Dish", came up several times through the night. Some people came up to me themselves and told me they read my blog and that they really enjoy it and relate to it. While others, would rather talk about reading my blog (negatively) to other people, rather than myself. Of course, this all gets back to me. We are talking about woman here, duh. This isn't the first time. It's been brought to my attention before, that people either love reading this blog...or love talking about what an asshole I am. How I have no "class". The question that is always asked is: "I don't know her, but is she really like that????"..."I can't believe some of the stuff she says"....etc...etc... Here's the deal people, if you don't like what you read, then don't fucking read it.
Let's take that first question: "....is she really like that?" Like what? An asshole? A strict Mom? A foul mouthed Italian? Yeah, I guess I am. What's wrong with that? Who is it hurting? I'm also a lot of other things that you wouldn't know about, unless you're my friend or family. And, what the hell do you care anyway? Is it any of your business? I don't see these people tying to get to know me, so why judge? Woman are great for that. Judging. They just love to sit around and talk about people they really don't know. Why is that? Does it make them feel better about themselves?
Here's my advice to you woman who don't know me, and who enjoy talking negatively about my blog:
1. Stop reading my blog. Go read something else that falls into your perfect lifestyle....like some old Little House on the Prairie books. You can skip around with your lunch pail on the hillside, while all the little birds chirp and think about how perfect life is.
2. Quit wasting your energy on me. Use that energy for something more useful...like exercising and eating healthy, so you can shed a few pounds (cause I'm sure you could).....and while you're at it, think long and hard about how "perfect" you think your life is. When you and your husband never fight, when your children all graduate from exceptional colleges and have great careers, when you never have financial troubles and when you start shittin rainbows.....then you can talk about all of us who are "beneath" you as much as you want. Asshole.
