So, Seen and Heard and Experienced in DMV (not verbatim)

Guy 1: I will not date anyone who makes less than 90K. If she has kids, she has to be a really good mom, but I prefer that she doesn’t so that she can take care of home, plus I have my own kids every other weekend.

Guy 2: Where are you going to meet a wonder woman like this?

Guy 1: I am sure there are a few out there, but they will have to work for hard my attention and loyalty because I am a catch and drive a Range.

Guy 2: Lucky her… Shakimg his head in disgust

(Unfortunately there are many many guy 1s in this area, I met quite a few in the past)

Friend 1: Hey, I have Wednesday free so can you meet for lunch then since you don’t work on Wednesdays?

Friend 2: I can’t, I now work 3 days a week instead of 2. Now that both kids can drive my husband said I should work more.

Friend 1: That’s a good thing! More money, and it will keep you busy now that the kids are older, and you still have free time.

Friend 2: That extra day is ruining my social life! Now I have only 2 days a week to lunch and hike with friends!

Friend 1: Awww. Sorry, I know it is a sacrifice (snark), but at least you aren’t working like 55 or 60 hours like I am.

Friend 2: I guess. But it will be a tough adjustment.

Friend 1: Yeah, I am sure it will, poor thing ( sarcasm and disdain dripping from her voice).

(I feel ya friend 1. Welcome to my friend circle, literally)

Feminist: I can’t stand that many women in this area are so bound to traditional family lives. So many of my neighbors are not going to the March.

Other woman: Well, I would go, but I have work and then I have to pick up kids from practice.

Feminist: What kind of feminist are you? You can’t get your husband to pick them up?

Other woman: What do you mean? We both work hard! He goes in late so he can get them to school. I go to work early so that I can pick them up for extracurriculars.

Feminist: I just meant that if you are really into women’s rights you would have taken off.

Other woman: You haven’t worked in 20 years and your kids are a part of a carpool. What are you doing for feminism? Your husband completely takes care of everything including with the kids. If being a feminist means not working and living a life of leisure, I want in!

(ME TOO SISTER, me too!)

I have tons of education and don't use it! I am non-traditional and traditional rolled into one person. I am a Christian, but need work! I am conservative fiscally, but I could care less who someone marries. My favorite things to do are: hang out with my kid, watch movies, read, write, sing, dance, love, live life to the fullest! I love: my kid, my cat, my best guy D, God, rain, chocolate, Christmas, friends, cats, animals in general, honesty, avocados, love, Hallmark channel, iced coffee, Harry Potter, NYC, England, Italy, D.C., Paris and autumn.
