I am a car!
On Saturday something happened that has bugged me ever since. I was walking down the street when, for want of a better word, a child -though he was drinking a monster and if he’s law abiding that’s over 16, looked me dead in the eye and said to his friend “What do you think? At best, a 3/10” it took me a few paces to realise what he had said and by this point any witty or scathing remarks I may have thought up were a moo point. Now, I had just returned from a 10 mile hike in mostly rain and was wearing the sexiest of all garments, a pac a mac, my hair was in its classic pineapple birds nest and zero makeup because in a toss up between applying make up or sleep I chose sleep! So I knew that I wasn’t looking my best. It wasn’t what he said that bothered me but in what world is it ok to say that out loud to someone’s face. That my friend is bull shit. Girls have enough trouble battling the person in the mirror, they don’t need people like that voicing things that could potential crush someone.
I am a big believer in @wheatpraylove theory of being a car. You don’t need anyone to tell you how great you are because you are already a car. Some days I am a merely a Ford Fiesta, sometimes I am a sassy Nissan Figaro and sometimes, just sometimes I am an E-type jag in racing green. I am an e-type jag in this photo. It was taken at 1am, it’s blurry and even though I thought I was straight on to those damn wings I really wasn’t, but that doesn’t matter because I had an awesome dress on, I had brushed my hair and though you can’t see I was wearing flats! I could conquer the world. So ladies screw what anybody else thinks and be a car!
