Sick Day XXV

I am sick of Auntie always saying my recent Sick Day posts are lame, bitch!

I am sick of cars that turn off their own headlights five minutes after you park them and turn them off. I warn people all the time that their lights are on, and they tell me they will go off on their own. I've now stopped warning people, so those truly in need of the warning will have dead batteries thanks to all the assholes that employ what they think is a cool feature. If I open the door to my truck when the lights are on I hear an alarm. That’s enough of a warning for me. I also can’t lock my truck if the lights are on. Isn't that enough?

Finally, I’m sick of women on Facebook that use a photo of themselves in a wedding dress. What are you, a bragger or are you that insecure? Are you just wanting to hang a No Trespassing sign on yourself? Are you saying, “I got a man legally and now I can relax?” I don’t care how many times you’ve been told that you are a beautiful bride, no one, and I mean no one looks good in a wedding dress. It’s like wearing a giant white Oldsmobile. It is a total man replant. I think that’s why they were invented, so guys at the wedding reception wouldn’t hit on the bride. I’m sure I have a few brides and brides to be pissed off at me right now, but hey it’s the truth regardless if you want to hear it or not. Wedding dresses are made for women for the purpose rubbing it in the faces of other women. I’m sick of it.

I for one agree with you on the wedding dress. I didn't wear one. But then, I didn't want a traditional wedding, either. We got married at one of my brothers' homes because he had a fireplace and I liked that idea. We had 25 family members and close friends, then a barbecue out in the back yard afterwards. I wore a long white dress with pastel smocking that I bought off the rack at Nordstrom's for $49. It obviously 'took' coz Dear Hubby and I will be celebrating 35 years together in June. And I no longer warn people about their headlights either which is bad because both our vehicles need to be turned off manually. Thankfully our neighbors know that, HA!

I hate weddings and everything about them (except the piece of paper that says I'm married). Cliff and I called up a preacher the day we decided to get married, had his mom and his brother's wife meet us at the church to be our witnesses, and that was that. My parents weren't told till later, because I knew my mom would try to finagle a way to turn it into some kind of big deal. Sure enough, a month or two later she made a huge tiered wedding cake and invited a bunch of relatives over.

Sheesh. No wonder I'm so weird.

Hey, I’m no girlie-girl but I loved my wedding dress. What’s weird is that so many women save them. Mea culpa. The drugged-up guys who burglarized our home tore it to shreds. Maybe they had a similar mindset to yours???

Just bought my wedding dress. Love it. But there are no photos of me wearing it online. I look better in jeans anyway.

And yes, though I'm a bride-to-be, I'm absolutely sick of brides rubbing their shit in other people's faces. She's getting married, BFD. So am I... except I'm not going into debt to create some overly elaborate image that I'm wealthy and showy. I'm in love, and money can't buy or show that.

I'm just sitting here and can think of absolutely nothing to say. Snap! Okay, that's one point for you!

Weddings and funerals are both scam industries and huge wastes of money.

LoL. I hate those cars that are so smart they can turn their own head lights off. I like to be nice and tell people "your lights are on". Big white wedding dresses are a big waste of money.

Kris you are such a Hippy.

Donna, You were a rebel even back then.

Beth, I guess there a lot more like me out there than I realize.

Jaggy I bet you will post one.

Darev, you are slipping.

Auntie, Bitch!

Rich, where have you been. Another waste of money is professional sports.

Moose, it's getting harder to keep the rage up at my age.

Gearhead, That's the point of a monthly sick day.

Weese, but you had a wedding hat. I really want to hear about that hat.

Trop I thought it was in June, but I'll be here when ever you come out.

g, that probably the reason you drive a Pious.

Paula, I'm getting past that nice stuff. It's somewhat more fun, though cars older than 20 years still may get a warning. It depends...

I'm sick of dark grey clouds spewing forth great quantities of white cold wet fluffy matter.

Peace, man.

I hope I'm not repeating myself. I left the same message earlier and it never showed up, haha!

When did you add word verification?!

Blogger The Guy Who Writes This said...

Loopy, it will soon be replaced by clouds of mosquitoes.

Kris, sometimes Blogger just loses stuff. I don't have word verify here, at least I hope not. Let me know if you see it because I don't get checked when I do an entry. I've had spam problems in the past and I'll use it for a week and then shut it off. I also have it so I moderate any comments that come to posts that are older than 15 days. Spammers usually go for older posts so it gets unnoticed.

funny i just posted in a group on facebook about weddings/marriage. as an only child, there is an expectation that i'll get married and have children (in that order, lol).

the thing is, i've NEVER wanted a big wedding - the size of my mother's family is prohibitive, and i have just never been into the whole foof-and-poof of weddings.

i watched SATC movie the other night, and carrie married big (finally) at city hall in a simple, vintage white two-piece number that was quite chic! i know it's only a movie, but her wedding is my dream! just me, him, and love. that's it, that's all.

I think it's because it's the culmination of months of unhealthy dieting to get into a dress way too small for what? Two hours? The dress will never fit again - that's not exactly my idea of a good way to spend money.

Dalia, you are about simple glitz aren't you.

Lori, I know you'd rather put your time into the reversal of Prop 8. Noble cause.

Well, it was there yesterday, Guy. But only when I'd come back the second time and saw my comment was gone. It isn't here this morning. Strange, isn't it. Another one of life's little mysteries.

Odd, because I didn't remove it and it never came to my email. I have all comments emailed to me.
