I was interviewed last night. How cool does that sound? Thankfully, it wasn’t recorded on video, because cool is probably the opposite of how I answered the questions. A girl I know is taking a sociology class with a theme of marriage and family, and – hey!- I’m married. I don’t know what the technical term of a newlywed is, but it doesn’t seem like I’ve been married long enough to be any kind of expert on the subject. It would be very interesting to read her final three pages, but I’m thinking it might be the kind of stuff I’d rather not read, myself as a sociological example? erg. Sense of humor about oneself is of paramount importance. And I trust her; she’s funny!
I love when answering someone else’s questions leads you to knowing yourself better. Or trying to do so, anyway.
Not too long ago they came out with that ‘new’ Census study, the one where we’re all astounded that 51% of women live without a spouse. The news stories that I saw on TV regarding that publication cracked me up. OOoooh. The divorcees aren’t remarrying. Oooh. The widows aren’t either. Oooh. All the single mothers. The fabric of society is just falling apart, huh? What about all the men eating over the sink and out of the saucepan? Over the trashcan, was one I saw yesterday. Thankfully, it was here at work, not at home. Bad examples, anyways, he’s married. Nobody’s really concerned that women need men to take care of them, are they? Seems to me the one report sticking in my head was in reference to single women being the new demographic to court for Election ’08. Sounds moronic to me. Do most people change their political views after getting married? I doubt this. But maybe that’s just me.
