Welcome To My World

Trivia sucked so bad last night. I swear. Sometimes I get SO frustrated. I can’t hear in there half the time, people gripe when I don’t say their answers and I screw up the answer half the time. In short, we were terrible. I still had fun but my goodness I would like to win once...it would make me feel a little smarter.

I don’t have much to say today. My grandmother and aunt are coming to visit from Chattanooga tomorrow and I’m pretty excited. I don’t have too many major weekend plans.

The only thing I did really want to say was how obnoxious I think the phrase, “welcome to my world,” is to me. I say it sometimes...so I am speaking to myself. I know that there is such a thing as empathy but when you are trying to tell someone your problems and their immediate reaction is, “welcome to my world,” you kind of want to smack them...or is that just me? I know some people mean well but I know someone that literally won’t let you make the conversation about yourself. You could go, “My head hurts,” and she would go, “Welcome to my world, you have no idea.” Not only does this person have a headache but they are going to pass out and die at any moment. This is with every conversation...EVERY conversation. I just don’t understand why people WANT to win the “I have it worse,” game. It really chaps my behind. I am going to make a concerted effort to NOT say that phrase or undercut people when they are telling me a problem. If you want the conversation to be that one sided...get a blog. Anyway, that was a reaction to a really obnoxious girl I overheard at Newk’s last night.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I love FRIDAY!

“Dust bowl, Bible belt
Got more churches than trees
Raise me, praise me, couldn't save me
Couldn't keep me on my knees
Oh, boy, rave on down loop 289
That'll be the day you see me back
In this fool's paradise
Temptation's strong
(Salvation's gone)
I'm on my way
To hell's half acre
How will I ever
How will I ever
Get to heaven now
Throwing stones from the top of your rock
Thinking no one can see
The secrets you hide behind
Your southern hospitality
On the strip the kids get lit
So they can have a real good time
Come Sunday they can just take their pick
From the crucifix skyline
Temptation's strong
(Salvation's gone)
I'm on my way
To hell's half acre
How will I ever
How will I ever
Get to heaven now” Lubbock or Leave It- Dixie Chicks
