I'M SICK OF HIM - Let Me Entertain You
Now, this is more like it! NO promises! ;
Tell Me You Have Not Been Here!
So the morning starts out with an imaginary alarm in my head. I woke up on my couch in the dark reaching for my watch and I swear it said 6:40am! So, I start freakin out because I've messed up the morning routine already. I get up really quickly, run into my sons room and look at his clock and it says 5:40am and I take a breath and make my way to my kitchen where I make my favorite coffee. I have been waking up at 4am a lot lately and then I wander to my couch to read until I fall asleep again. Of course on a school day this is not a very good idea....Sometimes I still feel like I'm on the euro clock since I lived there for a while...Maybe my head is just spinning from everything I'm doing (my different careers and the kids)! I don't even know the word "lay in!"
So, I realize I have a bit more morning time to myself (bliss with two young children who only want me to give them 100% of my attention in the early hours) and I decided to read the news on-line and after reading about this and that and what the President said and has not done, I said to myself "I'm Sick Of Him!" That is exactly what I thought after reading about him and others that are just not doing what they are saying. After the last few years, it all just sounds like a bunch of hogwash. I mean even if I like him or whoever I'm listening too, it just doesn't matter if they do not do what they promise!!!!
So, then both of my kids walk in whining and complaining (just one of those days)..."Mom, I can't talk...I'm sick...my teacher will never hear me." Of course my son says this with dramatic flair and I roll my eyes and think "I'm Sick Of Him!" Even with his innocent and gorgeous puppy blue eyes that he uses on me daily to get his way (I can see the manipulation gaining ground..ha).....THEN the little one chimes in and pulls her dramatic performance and then forgets that she was "ill" when I mentioned that it is pizza party day at school today. So, one down and the other to go. Here my gorgeous son, take some of this cold medicine and it will work wonders. Guess what, then your teacher will be able to hear you now! NEXT!
Then right when I'm about to head out the door, my 40 year old overly educated partner who went to the best schools in the world and is a cross between Martin Scorcese, Ewen McGregor, Guy Ritchie and any "Hollywood mogul" comes strutting in looking like a mix between a Calvin Klien ad in tight black jeans, really cool dark shades (it's raining) and a rock and roll star attitude and decides to state this.... "You know, your country is going down the tubes and there is no work in America anymore. I'm making deals in India and Asia now. Do you want to live in Tokyo?" I stopped at the door, looked at him and said these words quite clearly as I looked at my dog staring at me. "I'm Sick Of Him." My dog barked and agreed and then I was off on the school run. Then I proceeded to call "Mr. World Traveller" who is off to China soon on his cell while I was driving the kids to school as he headed to LA and told him this "Feel free to move there yourself, the only place I'm going is France or I'm staying right here!" And then he proceeded to sell me on the idea (sushi which I love, music deals, potential with our already existing clients that keep us on a rollercoaster every single day) like he does when he pitches to a studio and I hung up and thought.......... "Man, I'm really sick of him!"
I think the only men I'm NOT sick of are Bill Mayer and Jon Stewart and it is probably because I don't know them! The point of this hub is to say that there are a lot of men in political power positions and big players in the media who say lots, but do nothing! This is my reason for the title of this hub! I think there are only a few men in my life or in the media that have ever kept their word. Actually I can count them on one hand. Most of them have made promises that they never intended to keep. Never affected me much because I'm way too smart to fall for any of it, but this is how I feel our world is now. A lot of false promises! Even my ten year old son has said to me quite a few times...
"Mom, I thought OBama was going to stop the war?"
I mean, how do you tell a member of our future generation...Well, I'm sorry that he is not telling the truth or he is still "working on it" especially when I'm always saying how important the TRUTH is? Man, being a parent these days is not easy! How do you tell your son that he can make things happen in this world when there are too many people pulling strings and fixing the outcome just like a boxing match when someone takes a fall? This is the only time you will ever hear me write about this stuff! Makes me crazy!!!!!! I'm not saying women do not lie too....but that is not the title of this hub! Now, is it? Hmmmm? ha
So, in the future when someone pisses me off I will just say to myself "I'm Sick Of Him!!!!!" Then slowly I will hope that the truth prevails and the world becomes a better place! Especially for my kids and future generations. I'm waiting to be surprised, I really am.
