Earlier this week, I hit you with my knowledge of 70’s TV by revealing the sitcom moment that makes me laugh. Today, I’m going to give you another moment of knowledge garnered from my misspent youth sitting in front of a 25 inch Magnavox sans remote.
The Odd Couple- Felix Unger famously states:
Never ASSUME, because you make an ASS out of U and ME
Do people assume things about me?
I am short so people assume that I am weak. While I might not be your go to person for opening a jar of pickles, don’t underestimate my inner strength and resolve. Actually, try it. See how far that gets you when dealing with me.
I was a stay at home Mom so people assume I never had a tough job and that I am stupid. I quit my intellectually challenging 5-9 job (that’s am to pm for clarification) in order to be a Mom. Do not think that this means I was not competent at a job. Do not think that I have the IQ of a gnat. While I know that I am not the sharpest pencil in the box, I am not the dullest either. And I’m one whole pencil- not even a tiny bit broken. But again, if you wish to underestimate my intelligence or competence, just come at me…
I wear black all the time so people assume I’ve got a depressed EMO, goth, Elvira thing going on. I just like black clothing. I prefer dark colors because the city is dirty and I can be a little messy. It’s easy when doing laundry. And black clothes make me feel confident. It’s my thing.
Do we even go into what people think about the things that I like to do?
I like foreign films so I’m a snob.
I like romantic comedies so I’m an idiot
I like Impressionism so I’m basic.
I like champagne so I’m above myself.
This list can go on and on if I let it, but I figured I’d give you a few examples.
People assume, People judge. I can’t control them, but I can control me.
So I just keep on being me.
