Inappropriate Conversations

Or, alternate title, THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT ASK SOMEONE WHO YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IN YEARS.

Last month, I was sitting in my chiropractor’s office when I hear someone say, “Katy?” I look up and it is a woman who I haven’t seen in maybe 10 years or so? She wasn’t even someone I knew very well. Her daughter went to school with my younger brothers. Basically, this woman is an acquaintance who I hadn’t seen in forever. ANYWAYS, I respond with the “oh hi!” that comes out when you’re not expecting to talk to someone and don’t want to have a long conversation. The first question that comes out of her mouth (I KID YOU NOT) is, “Did you get married?” The smile instantly comes off my face and I give her a short, “No.” She fumbles about seeing a ring on my finger (it was a silver ring on my right hand?) and I fake smile as I go in for my adjustment, not saying another word.

Why was this the first question? This is SO inappropriate. Why don’t people understand this? Maybe I’m the only person that feels this way, but I legit get offended when the first question out of someone’s mouth is “are you dating anybody”, or “are you seeing anyone”, or “are you married yet?”. Like having a significant other would be the most interesting thing about me. I have so many interesting things about me that I would love to talk about other than my freaking relationship status.

Just, if you see someone who you haven’t seen in a while, ask them a general “how’s life?” or “what’s new with you?” DON’T ASK ME ABOUT MY RELATIONSHIP STATUS. It makes me very angry.

Do any of you deal with this as well? LMK in the comments.

An Unexpected Journey

If I had to title my adult life, it would definitely be An Unexpected Journey [I mean, it’s a true statement, and I mean, Tolkien..].img_8495_facetune_19-05-2019-10-31-38.jpeg

You see, over the past couple of weeks I have been reflecting on the last decade of my life. I’ve been reflecting because I just celebrated my 10 year anniversary of graduating COLLEGE. Whoa. It feels like it was a completely different life, and back then, I imagined a completely different life for myself. Continue reading

Why Do Women Hide Their Age?

So I recently had another birthday (32!) and I have no problem with it! What? You’re over thirty and single and no kids and you’re okay with that?! Yes. Yes I am. tenorWhich brings me to ask the question, why do women hide their age? Men never hide their age. When someone asks them how old they are they straight up tell you. Recently, I was on Instagram, and several people posted one of those things that are numbered 1-30 and you give them a number and they answer the question that coincides with the number.. Anyways, I asked all of them for their age.. Now, maybe that’s politically incorrect, but frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn. And I’m just a very curious person. I’m that person who looks up every actor and actress in a TV show or movie to see when they were born. Maybe that makes me weird? Anyways, half of the people who I asked how old they were (all women) declined to answer. They just had one of those “old enough to remember such and such” or “sorry, no” or “teehee, I’ll let you wonder”.. I don’t get that. I love telling people how old I am. I guess maybe because I have such a young face, I like to see that reaction when people find out that I’m like 10 years older than them. Just own it!

Am I the only one that wants to break that stigma? If you agree, tell me how old you are in the comments!
