One More Mommy

Thoughts of a mom and her husband, son, daughter, pets, friends, job (or lack thereof), house, family, trying to be more ecologically aware...

Girl, You'll be a Woman Soon

By all accounts, I qualify as a 'woman'. I'm well beyond the drinking age, married, house, kid (+ in utero), resposible contributing member of society. A woman.

But I have a hard time being a 'woman'. I don't even know if I think of my mother as a 'woman'. And yet, when I see reference to 'girls nights' I don't feel quite like that anymore, either. I would say well up until a couple years ago, I freely used 'girl', but it no longer seems to apply. I'm too crotchety to be a girl, I have too much responsibility, and dang it, it's about time I got a more effective moniker.

Men have it easier. They can be 'guys' forever. It's not weird to call a 50 year old man a guy. 'Guy' is non-age descriptive. 'Gal' should be my new descriptor, but who the hell wants to be a 'gal'?

And we all know I ain't no lady.
