…and enjoy the sunshine.
It is my one day off this week so I decided to walk Marty farther around my neighborhood and over to the turf (Marty loves turf!). I put on my pink camo leggings and headed out. We were enjoying the sunshine and turf and suddenly some creep wold whistled at us as the drove by in their truck. At first my brain wrote it off as no big deal but yanno what – I think it’s time as women that we STOP writing this stupid crap off as normal. It’s not normal. I don’t wolf whistle at strange men (or strange women). Back before my BF, when I thought a dude was cute I would say wave or say hi or strike up a conversation. Or if I was driving I would do nothing – because I was driving. Men don’t get wolf whistled or randomly called at for just wearing cool leggings and taking their dog for a walk. I don’t know a single woman who has NOT written this kind of stuff of. We exchange stories and call it normal. Nope, nope, nope. Not normal – not okay. Let’s stop thinking this is normal and writing it off. Let’s call a spade a spade and say it’s not okay – never has been. Whose with me?
…not only my 4th grade nemesis but the nemesis of this country.
I have a clear side and opinion on this election – Ridin’ with Biden! BUT that doesn’t mean I think it’s the miracle bandage that’s going to solve this countries issues. We the People need to do that. This division has become too much. We are so Red vs. Blue focused I think we’ve forgotten we will play for the same team – team USA and Human Race. So let’s work together to address what needs addressing and fix what needs fixing. We can disagree about things and still find a comfortable middle ground. Don’t listen to those urging an emotional and potentially violent response so this election *cough cough that’s not what good President’s do* (there goes my opinion again). Let’s mend the division, work together, and address the systemic racism and sexism in this country, do our best to save the environment (because we need it and it’s great), quell this pandemic in this country, and get our economy back on track. Let’s work together through love instead of dividing through hate. The only thing I want to hate is division (both in our country and math).
