All my married ladies

Are there any other recently married ladies out there who feel like your single guy friends totally lost interest in being buddies since you got married?

I sho is feeling that way lately.

Maybe it's because I'm not a viable entity anymore. Or maybe it's because I don't have many single friends to bring with me out to bars for the guys to talk to. Or maybe it's because if I take shots I feel a hundred years old the next day and I simply can't hang like I used to.

All this got me to thinking of my ideal night. In no particular order, just depending on my mood, they are as follows:

1) Sitting on a porch or patio somewhere with 1-8 of my favorite people in the world drinking beer or wine, listening to music and just talk, talk, talkin.

2) Hanging out with my parents and my sister, forgetting what time it is, and staying up too late just talk, talk, talking.
3) Drinking beer, dancing around in my kitchen, listening to old school upbeat jams, cooking something really complicated that takes forever and doing it as slow as possible so it lasts even longer. Alone.

4) When sad, drinking wine in my kitchen, listening to Sarah McGlaughlin's "Mirrorball" album, crying into a pot of homemade soup, knowing that I am being totally dramatic because I have nothing to be sad about.

Suddenly it is very clear to me why my guy friends are abandonding me one by one!

Oh well. I guess people change.

As Sarah Mcglaughlin once said to the Indigo Girls at Lillith Fair..."Shave your armpits you big lez!"


  1. No mention of a dance party to JHud? That would make my list :)

  2. I'm glad that I can participate in all of these activities. Except the parents and sister one...dammit. Come see me. I've got a fine chair picked out for you on my new deck.
