So there I was at Walmart after dark.
Not my fav.
But as I was walking out I saw two girls talking excitedly.
As they walked past me I heard,
Friend of Girl: “So how bad is it?”
Girl: “Well see for yourself.” as she pulls her hoodie away from her neck.
Full on hickey.
(Usually at this point I would do a “Spinster’s definition" but this is just too awkward.)
Girl: “He bit it.”
Friend of Girl: “I know. I can tell.”
Excuse?! Is this real life?
1. In what universe would a girl let a guy treat her that way? Gert and I are big on chivalry and (trying) to be classy so this sort of thing outrages us. Just because a guy may treat a girl like she’s second-hand, doesn’t mean that she should prove him right. Want to know why he’s acting like a tool? Because she’s letting him. You set the bar. The men will come.
Ladies! Stand up for yourself!
2. I am a firm believer that you should do another Spinster a solid in the way that you treat boys/let them treat you because the odds are you will not end up with your boy of the week and that he will end up dating/marrying a fellow Spinster.
So if you stood up for yourself and didn’t let a boy treat you like laundry lint, maybe he’d think twice before going vampire on the next girl.
Stepping off my soap box,
Wait- not yet….
Vampires these days are considered sleek and hot. But seriously, biting people is still weird.
Okay, now I’m done.
p.p.s Yes this is Harry Potter font. Judge me.
