To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I can't remember what movie it's on, but I LOVE the term "Chic-batty". I think it's SO SO SO funny. And, pretty accurate. Girls are often very unreasonable with their emotions. It's true. I'll readily acknowledge the accuracy of it.

A friend of mine called me a little while ago, asking for help with his girlfriend. And, as he was laying out all the details of the issue he was having with his lady, I couldn't help but laugh. And, I apologized to him and said "we girls can be pretty ridiculous, can't we?" I don't think he knew how to answer, because he looked as if I might shoot him if he answered wrong.

I know I always joke about not being very girlie. And, emotionally, I truthful am not. As I have gotten older, I am WAY less emotional and WAY more pragmatic. Ironically, I find the opposite true for most guys I know. Truthfully, I know WAY more "chic-batty" guys than I know girls. And, so today I was just wondering if it's ok for me to ask a simple question...

I dye my hair and do it (most days), I shave my legs (occasionally), I wear heels all the time, I have more clothes and make-up than many department stores COMBINED, I have long chats with my girlfriends, I wear a bra everyday and perfume most days. So somebody PLEASE tell me that at some point in my life I get to have a relationship where I actually get to BE the girl!?!

Ugh... ok, I am done now.

Funny. Jonny's parents are that way - his mom is the guy and his dad is the girl. That sounds weird, but you know what I mean!
