Ohhhhh, do I ever have a treat for y'all today! For those of you who might have been around back at the beginning of my blog, you probably remember Connie J. She became blog famous after her rant about cell phone use. If you missed it, click here to read it. Trust me.
Well....she's back with another little rant today. And, as usual, she's hilarious and right on point. And she's going to make you crack up the next time you check out your facebook news feed or walk through Wal-Mart and realize she's right on point. Without further adieu, I give you Connie J! (PS--I realize this picture has nothing to do with the topic of her blog, but I love it and decided to use it anyway.)
Trends I Am Ready to See Go Away….
You know, I like to think of myself as a “trendy old lady” and I’ve seen a lot of things come and go that were pretty awful, but I think there are some trends today that are among the worst.
You have all already heard my previous diatribe regarding cell phone use in church, at the movies, at the funeral, at the wedding, in line at the convenience store, etc…so enough said about that.
Pajamas in public – a personal favorite thing to hate…..now if you just got out of surgery and don’t have ANYONE who can go pick up your prescription maybe it’s understandable, I said MAYBE. However, the number of able bodied healthy people who go out in public in their pajamas is astounding. Not only pajamas, but also fuzzy slippers and bathrobes….please please please take the time to just throw on some clothes before you go to town, I’m begging you!
The “duck face” – this is a subject I have ranted about previously, several times. If you insist on taking a self portrait for facebook, even if you are gorgeous, you look totally ridiculous with your kissy face looking at the camera. As my lovely daughter so aptly put it “if you ever see me making the duck face please walk over to me and punch me in it, I mean it”!
Along the same lines, the self portrait – in addition, if you insist on that aforesaid self portrait in the bathroom or bedroom mirror, try to ensure that the toilet is not in the background, this does not a beautiful picture make, just sayin’.
In closing, I would just like to say that hopefully these current trends will pass and something else not so dumb will take their place, it’s happened before……..
