Sadness Smorgasbord. Black Lives Matter, and P.S. Sports Team Cuts and Dementia.
Haven't written a list in forever and don't have too many followers, but here goes...
- •So this afternoon, I was in the parking lot of my (upscale) grocery store. 🍾🎩🍣Stay with me here, but it gets worse before it gets better.
- •There was this brand new Range Rover...🏎+🚜That I would be too embarrassed to drive, but it was very pretty.
- •And it has a Republican sticker...🙊OK, I was born a Dem but not so much as a very tax-burdened Gen-X-Er, but like most folks, hating this year's election so, OK...Trump is bananas and people are grappling...so I do not sticker judge.
- •And then there is this cute doggy sticker...🐶I LOVE DOGS!🐾❤️
- •And it has a little face of a black lab and a yellow lab...👍+👍🏿OK, I am a strictly golden retriever gal (lost my best friend this summer, but that's another list), but I can work w/ the retriever family...
- •But then it says, "ALL LABS MATTER."Are you shitting me? 💩💩💩💩 That is not cute, it is obnoxious. BOO! It PISSED ME OFF. I love doggies, but c'mon, doggies are not a whole persecuted group of people who do not deserve to have their movement co-opted and trivialized. By dogs. Damn. This does not help people feel valued and get along. Only in America do we love our dogs more than our humans. 😡
- •But if I hadn't read all the li.sts on li.st, I might have not noticed or reacted.So thank you, I have re-thought and first-thought a lot of stuff since being on this app. And I was bummed that one of my demographic peers was so cavalier. But I'd like you all to know that there is a blonde, white, middle-aged chick that you might secretly scorn at if you see me in my big, black SUV and sunglasses, but maybe that lady you see is making progress and learning. 👩🏼🕶🚗
- •And also, my kid got cut from a sports team, but I can't write a list about that because that's not my right or my story, but fuck that, too. 😡😢And also, we are losing a very close, beloved family to dementia, but also not my story and can't write about that, but fuck dementia. 😪
- •So that's it for now. Thank you for reading. Let's all assume the best of each other and hope for the best and try for the best!Love, peeps, love. ❤️❤️❤️
