WTF Thursday - Dear Diary, I Named an Elephant Today...
1) Next week is my 30th birthday, but I'm boycotting it because I am not ready to leave my 20s behind. What has been the toughest birthday for you so far? None of them, not as an adult. When I was 13, my mother turned 40 and had a total meltdown. She just went nuts. I refuse to be that way. I see it as this or being dead, so give me birthdays, please! I also love my birthday and feel it should be a national holiday.
The closest thing I can think of as the toughest birthday was when I turned 13. I wanted to wake up and have breasts and a curvy woman's body, not the board that I still looked like. Keep in mind that none of us looked like we were growing into women right then - some were showing small signs and some nothing, not like kids today who are starting menarche at age 9... I was very disappointed that I woke up looking the same as always. I also wanted to get my period when I was that age, again because it was a sign of womanhood. I'm so glad I'm done with that age range!
3) Recently the Oklahoma City Zoo held a contest to name its newest elephant baby. With today (Sept. 22) being Elephant Appreciation Day, what would you name an elephant if you could name one? Peanut Butter. I don't know why, it just seems fitting.
4) On Sept. 22, 1920, the Band-Aid was invented. What is something you wish you could cover up with a Band-Aid? My fat stomach. Wouldn't that be cool? One band-aid and you can go to the beach looking svelte without having to torture yourself to lose the weight.
5) Other than gasoline, what do you frequently purchase at a gas station? Nothing. I very rarely go into the store that is part of it. I only ever buy fuel. Besides, the mark up in those places is an outrage.
7) Today (Sept. 22) is Dear Diary Day. Finish this sentence: "Dear Diary, I wish I knew ..." ...when my Long Term Disability is going to come through from the state."
8) Would you rather have children and make a decent salary or have no kids and make a great salary? I think you know the answer to that. The latter, please. Although I never cared how much I made so long as I was happy, and I was very happy. But I'm much happier living my child-free life. So the accurate answer is "I'd rather have no children regardless of my income."
