If I Had A Fucking Dime For Everytime Someone Called Me A Weirdo, I'd Be A Gazillionaire



Every family's got one, and I'm it. I don't say that to be self-deprecating or negative. I like my weirdness. Only maybe in smaller doses. The other morning I looked over at my two sons (Happy, my sullen girl teenager, was slumbering as usual, it was morning, afterall). My big son was making his own bookbag out of old corduroy...dreaded to beat the band. The smaller one was running around in nothing but a diaper and a tie-dye t-shirt...with two little wispy ponytails. I had just come in from watering my summer squash and got an overwhelming hippie vibe. Too hippy. So I started to think of all the non-hippy things I could do for the day. I tried to think of "normal" activities. Then I said,
"Fuck That!"
And carried on.

Did you really tie dye all of those in one day?

Yup. We had a tie-dye party but only G. and I were there! We boil us up a big cauldron and have at it.

Weird is good. I'm the family weirdo too. Nice to encounter a kindred spirit. Came by from Guy's.

But - I don't understand what makes you weird......

So can you tie-dye me something cool and girly? You never see cute blue and pink tie-dyes. Why is that?

changapeluda said...

Mathew Parkin you are the lovely one. Glad to know you inherited the gene of lovelyweirdhippity!

B.Fish,
You do @ our house! I did a soft purple and pink swirly girly right in the middle of a shirt once. I Loved that shirt! and haven't done one since. Now I have occasion. I almost won a horse-shoe tournament in that shirt....I was one of 2 girls on the roster w/a bunch of lovely Latinos on a hot summer afternoon. Drank lotsa beer....Whatta day!

Beta Fishy said...

Whoop! Whoop! Gotta love girly tie-dye.

Hmmm...beer, horse-shoes, tie-dye *sigh* sounds like a perfect summer day.

I can relate...
I consider myself the gay, artist, free thinking sheep of the family and it suits me fine.
