had a recent interesting reminisce with FB compadres re my past life of church-going wifey-ness.
i was never really that good at either to be honest.
both are bullshit.
and thats where i’ll leave it.
ps: not my meme.
Moko ‘just turned 7’ brought a tonne of books with her, for us to read … I think we only got through 3 or 4 … oh well, next time moko :)
But one of the books we did read, was called ‘101 things granny should do’, or know, or something like that.
I thought I was going to be greeted with a lovely little story about how granny should be loving and caring and give cuddles and extra ice cream … all that kind of stuff … but instead …
There was 101 menial chores, tasks and rules that granny should do and obey. Most of those things included doing laundry, baking cakes, gardening, going to games, cooking, keeping a clean house … yes my fuck, keeping a clean house! Now I could have a few of those things wrong; can’t quite remember it all, as I think the red ‘is this sexist or what’ rage had kicked in after the first two pages. But I read on and moko seemed pretty pleased with the whole reading process.
When we got to the end of the book, I quietly placed it to one side and asked moko: “What is it exactly the Grandpa gets to do?”
And just as quietly and ever so pleasantly, moko replies: “I don’t know, they didn’t have a Grandpa book”.
Well that just fucken says it all doesn’t it! LOL
