THANK GOD FOR BOYS… I cannot say that enough! I love how males can hate each other one minute and then be best friends the next. Gerald and Ronald can be beating the crap out of each other and literally stop in the middle of their World War 3 to go outside and throw the baseball or football back and forth to each other. We females, on the other hand, looooove drama. And holding grudges. It seems like women’s love for drama doesn’t improve with age, either. For example, I have an acquaintance [I’m using that term very loosely] who is almost as old as I am, and I really believe that she loves conflict. She’s one of those women who smiles in your face and tells you what a great friend you are and then tells her other “friends” behind your back all of the terrible things about you (that may not even be remotely true). I’ve racked my brain trying to figure out why the heck women do this, and the only conclusion I can draw is that their self-esteem is so low that the only way they can feel better about themselves is to bring others down. Why do we, as women, automatically try to make ourselves look better at someone else’s expense? Why can’t we do like my boys and just talk about how awesome we are?! Men pride themselves on having a giant penis… Why can’t we be that simplistic and pride ourselves on having big hair or a big mouth or making the world’s best cookies??? Why do women have to make everything a rivalry? Again, any rivalry between Gerald and Ronald usually consists of one good sucker punch while the other isn’t looking, and then they’re back to being best buds again. I watch them as they’re getting older, and their rivalries are seeming to get smaller. That’s freakin’ awesome! I wish I could say the same for some of the women with whom I’m “friends.” Why can’t we just BOTH be awesome?! Okay… rant over.
