I have never been one to intentionally hurt someone's feelings. On the contrary, I go out of my way to NOT offend or hurt or maim or diminish or demean or . . . well, you know. It's just not in my nature. However, it's also not in my nature to do the PC thing. I've been known to say "that's so retarded" (I know, I'm sorry). When I see something stupid, I just can't seem to keep my tongue from moving. I'm working on it, but so far no luck.
So, today, just a couple of thoughts . . . .
Happy Singles Awareness Day??!!!! Seriously????????? I'm sorry if you're single and don't want to be. I feel for you. I was single into my 30s and it kind of sucked. But . . . today is Valentine's Day . . . NOT "singles awareness day". Try to picture a second grade classroom today, happily and giggily passing out and getting valentines and candies to all their friends, and then putting them into these groovy bags that they decorated just for that purpose. Eating heart-shaped, decorated and awesomely delicious cookies. That's a happy vision dancing around in my head. Happy Singles Awareness Day?? Phffff! Get your own day.
And since when did we, as citizens of this great country, stand by and let the media manipulate and distort "news?" Since when is it "news" when someone takes a sip of water because their mouth is dry? Since when does msnbc show someone taking a sip of water 138 times on a single day??!!!!!!! Holy crap, people!!!! Go chase some REAL news, will you??
That is so retarded.
