Musings on Being Me

Sometimes it’s strange to be a middle aged white female American. People make all sorts of assumptions about you. You look like a conservative so they assume you are one, “Don’t you think SCOTUS made a stupid decision today?” Ugh, no, I really don’t. I’m not anti- gay and I haven’t been since I was 12. “That Bernie Sanders is too radical! He’ll never win.” Ugh, I have followed his type of ideology since I was 11. In case you can’t see, my formative years were, well, formative. Then they have the nerve to say something stupid and racist and that’s when I go off. My best friend is African American. I’ve known her since I was 13. Because of her I’m a lot more sensitive to things than some other white folk.

Today was a rough day for our nation. Hell, it was a rough week but we got through it and I think we will be better for it. Kudos to Deb and Susan, Eric and Russell, Dale, Miguel, Bruno, Gavin…wherever you are….this is a day to celebrate.

I may get mad at the POTUS sometimes but I am glad that I saw him give that eulogy and start the singing “Amazing Grace” in front of that congregation. It’s nice to know that the leader of the free world is more afraid to sing in public than me. With some training he could sound really good but till then he shouldn’t quit his day job! Lol!
