The always entertaining Ann of Ann’s Rants: Confessions of a Work Week Widow is throwing a week-long blog party (pray the beer doesn’t run out) called “Great Posts You Probably Never Read (Except for You, Mom).” These are fabulous posts we wrote when we had about eight readers. Ok, maybe five. Definitely two for sure.
Read Ann’s very funny piece below, leave a comment and then head on over to Wendi Aarons’ place to read my post about nudity (you can read it fully clothed which is highly advisable if you’re at work). Then visit Ann’s blog to read Wendi’s hilarious post about her unbridled passion for downward dogs.
It’s Not You, It’s Me
By Ann of Ann’s Rants
Dear Playdate Mommy,
I’m not sure how to say this, but…its over. Please don’t take it personally. We seemed to have a lot in common in that we both have 4-year-old males, but the chemistry just isn’t there. I guess I’m just not that into you.
Please don’t be angry. Its not you, it’s me. I really tried. I dragged up all those conversation starters from boring business lunches of old: Seen any good movies lately? Got any vacation plans in the works? Where did you grow up? See, I have a lot going on right now. That, and I need more space. Also, I’m still getting over my last Mommy break-up. Trust me, I just couldn’t be a good Mommy friend to you right now. I’m not ready for a friendship right now in my life. I’m seeing other Mommies.
I can’t thank you enough for all you contributed—the organized craft for the kids, the healthy snacks for all of us, the freshly brewed coffee…You’re such a great Mommy and I just know that you’re going to make some lucky Mommy out there so happy. You deserve someone who appreciates all you do, rather than just staring blankly in your general direction.
I just haven’t found “The One” yet, you know? They say these things take time…I hope we can still be acquaintances.
Seriously. No. Really,
Now click on over to Wendi Aarons to read my post about all those naked people out there.
