I grew up in a family of smart Aleck's, though that is not the word we really referred to ourselves. I don't think my parents realized just how much sarcasm, biting whit, and humorous indignation they bestowed upon their offspring's mind. I like to think some of my children's and niece and nephews cunning and humorous intellect is part of their lineage. Conversations are never dull on my side of the family at get togethers.
I've tried to stay apolitical in Facebook, but darn if there hasn't been a few pretty funny photo's circulating that tip their hats to my point of view. I honestly thought I would "share" in my timeline more as a memory for myself, (I tend to use Facebook for). I shared a picture of a women holding a sign saying, "With out immigration, Trump would have no wives." I started a "$h&%t" brigade of comments on Sunday, led by a former classmate, who one might think from her statements that she believes she literally sits at the right hand of God. I never responded to her comments, but she went after anyone else who dared to find the picture equally ironic.That after this, I had to take her off my friend list (sounds so juvenile) so I wouldn't have to see her posts, and have her reply 10-15 times against every left leaning thought. I get it, she has her convictions, but I want to be entertained, not badgered.
I know the issues in the world are serious business and I too lose sleep over them, cry about the atrocities, and will do my role to engage in solutions. Sometimes though, a little humor needs to be used to at least get people to see well, people. Here was my favorite, and thank you to my niece.I don't know where she first found it, so if someone knows the original source, I'd gladly give it credit. My share included the following statement, "If you're going to piss people off on Facebook, you might as well make sure it is funny."
Come on, regardless of your political convictions, one can admit it is funny. It was
also refreshing to just have people either just hit like, or the smiley
face, including people who I know have very different stances on the current climate, and not got phonetically nuclear in the comments.
In other acts of naughtiness, I ate a Big Mac, and had a small strawberry shake from McDonald's. I had to run DD2 to school for an hour, and I didn't want to drive home, only to turn back. I could have done something productive, but instead, hearing the radio folks talk about the new bigger Big Mac, and not having had supper yet, nothing sounded better in that moment. Eight dollars later, holy buckets did I have sticker shock, I was over indulging with every bite. It was horrifically delicious, and will probably be my last for another half a decade. I didn't even fess up to either DH or DD2, my secret. That was my Monday. Over whelmed at work, starting fights in social media, and eating three times the calories a normal human should eat in a day. How was your Monday?
