Melissa and I have been cracking ourselves up lately with the “problems” we are encountering this summer. We fully recognize our stereotypical whiteness and the supposed “issues” we face in our terribly difficult white middle class world. I’m sharing them with you so you can (hopefully) get as much of a giggle out of privelege as we do.
“OH NO. I just smudged my OPI Get in Lime nail polish for the second time. I’m going to have to do another coat and it’s going to take forever to dryyyy.”
“My hair will just not hold any curl in this NC summer humidity! I’m going to have a terrible hair summer, so why am I even trying!” (verge of a 23 year old temper tantrum)
“If I’m making all of these fabric flowers, I should start an Etsy shop! Oh but what in the world would I call it! I would never be able to make a decision or come up with something cute enough….”
“Which nude pumps should I buy that could transition throughout all the seasons and go with the majority of my clothes? Should I get the ones with the wooden soles? Or the ones with the platform toes? Wedge? Peep toe? Slingback? Too many choices!”
“Ugh. The apartment complex is out of creamer again! I mean you would think with the rent we pay we could get some creamer in the morning! (With our complimentary Keurig individually brewed coffee)
Ya’ll. I need to clarify, we are not as bratty as this makes us sound. After these comments (most of which are made in jest, promise) we have to giggle and then say a quick prayer for the less fortunate of the world. All of these trivial matters only serve to remind us that we lead extremely blessed lives and that our time and efforts can always be put to better use (than stressing over nail polish and shoes). If nothing else, these comments bring us back to earth as soon as they are uttered and remind us to CHECK OURSELVES. Nevertheless, enjoy our ridiculousness. We do.
