The women in this town are "different." I'm not sure any of you guys ever saw or heard of the reality TV show Big Rich Texas, but the women they featured supposedly lived in Dallas. It was an embarrassment to Dallas women (we were once Dallas women ourselves, and I never saw that type of behavior), but it could totally fit the women in this town. Excluding our friends who we love!!
Last week (I think it was last week... it all tends to run together), when I took the kids to get their passports, I had my first glimpse of this, but didn't really think anything about it at the time. I was going back into the office because I had to drop something off so the clerk could get our paperwork finished up. As soon as I walked in, I saw a woman sitting there with her "man." That woman gave me the look from Hell, and did this little head thing, you know, kind of like a snake. Well, sadly I'm not one to just ignore these things, so I did it right back, and continued on my happy little way to the desk. Pfffttt... I just figured I looked extra good that day, so whatever, right?
Well, we had a party Saturday for the wife's tennis peeps, and we heard stories about the women in this town that made our mouths drop. I thought back to the woman in the passport office, dressed beautifully, nails done, pretty enough if she hadn't been such a b*tch, and I considered myself lucky I didn't get my a** jumped, because apparently that's what they do around here. Wow... Oh, and lets not forget everyone around here knows someone you know!
Today was a beautiful day... so beautiful I decided to put the top down on the car while running my errands. Right now, due to total reconstruction, we have the road from Hell as our only way in and out of our neighborhood and town. The crews will normally stop traffic in order to let the big trucks pass, and today, they stopped traffic on both sides, putting me right next to cars going the opposite direction. I glanced over at the woman in the car next to me, just because I feel stupid sitting still, and looking directly ahead, and she did the snake head (again!!!)!!!! Well, me being who I am, glanced down at my playlist, and played a song I downloaded for an occasion such as this. I just like the first part, the chorus... the rest of the song, I don't care much about. Luckily it started out exactly how I needed it to, and the road crew on my side of the road, loved the song making it a win-win. Plus I figured they were on my side had "snake head" come after me. Yep...
Seriously though... what is up with these women?
