some women just don't belong in bars. it takes a little bit of patience and a sense that you just may lose your personal space to be comfortable in a crowded bar. alcohol helps, too...but that maybe take a while to kick in.
last saturday, a group of friends and i went to a johnny cash tribute. we go every year and it's always fun. four different bands play johnny music, and the range is amazing...blue grass, rock, country...it's all covered in one night. and the ending act is a man and his wife who once knew johnny, clearly giving them the right to believe they are johnny and june reincarnated. it's a little weird, a little self-serving, but it's fun.
there was a woman there who did not belong. clearly. at the beginning of the night, she was standing next to my friend, kate, who happens to have lovely curly hair. she turned to kate (who by the way was in no way in this girl's way) and say, "you have beautiful hair, but could you please keep it out of my face?" kate looked at her in awe and continued to drink her beer. what do you say to that?
throughout the night, we kept meeting other women who had been offended by this woman. she was mad that people were dancing by her, mad that people were walking past her to get to the bar....she was pretty much just mad. like i said, some women don't belong in bars.

the coup de grâce was when a woman was dancing near her. god forbid a woman dance near another woman at a bar where a band is playing...the nerve! anyways, this dancing woman was a wee bit drunk, and may have gotten kind of close to mean girl. so what did mean girl do? why, she yanked the girl's hair so hard that her head flung back. like full-on reality tv, hair-pulling girl fight. then mean girl left. maybe she realized she didn't belong there.
can i just brag for one sec about these boots? i found them at a thrift store and i had to do a triple take. i mean, vintage frye boots, in my size! and my coup de grâce was that they were $7.99.
