This getting old really sucks. PMS is here almost as often as Nice Amy is lately. Honestly, there should just be an off switch for when you know you’re done with certain body parts.
That said, I’m in a mood and you should all stay out of my way. For example, the parents I sat next to at Andy’s football game this evening. First, let’s be clear, I despise adult women who try to carry themselves as children. The woman in question has long, long hair (actually, it’s kind of beautiful) that she ties with a loose ribbon that matches her visor, her short shorts (sorry ladies, if you’re past 40 and you’re not Demi Moore, short-short shorts are not your friends) , matching cuffed ankle socks and even sneakers with matching stripes – she also affects a weird pigeon-toed thing when she walks, but I’m not willing to go into that. Okay, that’s enough reason to hate her and her pretty hair and her over-exposed cottage-cheese thighs. BUT . . . I was sitting all of 18″ away from her. I said “Hi!” when I sat down. I tried to be friendly, but she was having none of that – I’m thinking my super-short hair might have freaked her out???? I held in my “whatever feeling” at her absurd outfit. WHY could she not keep her own mouth shut????
If Andy was 46 and a woman, he would look a LOT like me – we look that much alike (he’s just way prettier). STILL, I have to listen to her b*tch and moan about the coaching and how unfair it is that some kids are taller than others and that her son hasn’t had a growth spurt yet. (Have I mentioned that Mike is the coach????) I have to defend her husband here. He kept trying to interject things like “Honey, life isn’t fair.” and “Kids grow when they grow … it’s not X’s fault that he’s not as big as some of these kids, but, then again, I’m not as big as some of these kids’ dads!” Nice, sensible guy. She stopped talking to him altogether. :::sigh:::
I bit my tongue. This is the 9-11 age group – HUGE stretch size-wise. Guess what, lady, it gets worse in the 12-14 group!!!!!! In this woman’s mind, Andy is a giant. Andy has not had a true “growth spurt.” He’s just a big kid – doh! Look at his dad or even me, I have the shoulders of a Division II linebacker. Anyway . . . if you don’t know who you’re sitting amongst, shut your mouth. If the coach is a volunteer – duct tape your mouth. If your kid is a spaz who cannot even catch a snap from the center – go home.
Honestly, this woman was so ugly and so critical of Mike and every single kid on the field but her own . . . I was grateful for half time and a chance to move without making a big deal of it. Be nice to the volunteer parents in your lives. Be really nice to them. They try so hard.
And that’s all for tonight. Nice Amy should be back sometime soon.
