Who I want to be when I grow up, part 2
Awhile back, I wrote about a volunteer whose passion and spitfire I admire quite a lot...I wrote her an e-mail telling her that when I grew up, I wanted to be just like her.
I had a shitty evening last night, upset about an encounter where I was bullied by someone I thought I had to listen to...and the great news is that today, my boss essentially said, "Fuck him."
I'm never a bitch just for fun, but I believe we should squawk when we need to. On that note, today, Mr. RK encountered the SECOND sweet older woman I want to turn into, if I get to live that long...
Because life is short and we both love to laugh, every day we ask each other, "Did anything funny happen today?"
Today, he spotted a grandmotherly type driving exactly 35 miles an hour in a 35 mile-an-hour zone in our neighborhood. An asshole in a huge SUV (sorry, that was redundant)cut her off and then stopped suddenly, so she had to slam on the brakes.
"I thought she seemed like the knitting, church-going type," Mr. RK told me. "And then she went around the corner, passed him, and flipped him off!"
Go, granny, go!
This is what I want to be like when I grow up. I am reasonably sure this is a goal I can achieve.
