You know why women often say “nothing’s wrong” when something is definitely bothering them
It’s because men have been belittling, minimizing and mocking our emotions forever
And we are socialized to be as passive and undemanding and selfless as possible, and not to run any risk of bothering or angering a man lest he abandon or hurt us It’s not passive aggression, it is fear
Last night my dude and I went out to dinner, walked around downtown during the First Friday art shows, saw a bunch of people I like but forgot existed, then went to a play.
My sister-in-law bought us the play tickets for Christmas. She has bought play tickets for Christmas for us for the last 5 years. They have mostly been bad. We left at intermission. It was a fun night even though the play was lame because we got to talk shit together, and that’s always a good time.
I went and got 3 barred rock and 3 amaracauna chicks today. Something to make the long winter worth it. We were planning to get some more layers anyway. Why not now, after the wretched weekend? Because chicks make everything better, right?
Ever get a school bus stuck in a snow bank after sliding down a hill? I have now! This morning it took me, a bucket of gravel, 2 shop guys, chains, a pick up with a tow rope, and 45 minutes to get the damned thing free. I recommend if you want to try this, ditch the broody high school kids first. They just ruin the mood.
