There are a lot of things in this world that it’s not okay to be okay about. Like global warming. And human trafficking. And leggings worn with crop tops (cover your asses, ladies). But this list? Is about all the things we need to stop stressing the hell out about (and I have Airing My Dirty Laundry to thank for the idea, so visit her). So, without further ado, I give you:
Hey, it’s okay…
To think that lettuce on a hamburger counts as a vegetable.
To tell a clueless wonder that her grin would look a lot better if she lost the lipstick on her teeth.
To wonder why we need DVDs to teach our children to read (isn’t that counter productive?).
To be really glad to see your family when they come to visit…and almost as glad to see them go.
To indulge in a pity party fueled by chocolate when the fitting room mirror gives you bad news.
To feed your child non-organic, genetically-altered, pesticide-covered fruits and vegetables (just wash them first).
To mourn the loss of the fantastic boobs your 21-year-old self didn’t fully appreciate.
To hate Jillian Michaels. And Dr. Oz. And even Oprah. Yes, Oprah.
To think the trashy paranormal romance novel you just read was way better than that Pulitzer Prize-winning bore you forced yourself to finish.
To fantasize about arriving on a deserted beach on a Caribbean island, curling up in a hammock under a palm tree with your honey…and taking a two-hour nap.
That’s my list. What are you okay about?
