I’m going to tell on myself: When scrubbing chicken poop off the outdoor furniture this morning, I thought, “I am better than her,” while playing a girlfriend’s behavior in my mind’s eye.
You heard me right, chicken poop. That dang domesticated rooster is at the point he mosies in the front and back door like a cowboy in the OK corral.
Anyway, back to what I was saying – I must get something out of comparing myself to others. But what?
My first thought is it’s to feel better about myself.
I’ve had a lifetime of competing against women. Whether in sports, at work, for a boyfriend, or just in life. And at this point, I don’t think competing in those areas is beneficial. Plus, I’m confident I can feel better about myself without minimizing others.
Like how? Well, taking the Hot One’s challenge is one idea!
Are you as late to the Hot One’s party as Dave and I are? Today was the first time I’d heard of the YouTube spicy-wing celebrity interview craze. A friend Marco Polo’d to tell me about it, a client discussed it, I watched a few minutes of Will Ferrell’s eyes watering, and then Dave told me we’re going to a “Hot Ones” style birthday party on Sunday.
Dave referred to the phenomena as the “zeitgeist.” I likely translated that word wrong at the time, so hold on as I google. It’s “the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era.“ Ok, cool. I’ll go with that.
It was a successful first day back at work with only one minor scheduling mishap. I’ll give myself an A minus on the day. I’m hoping for a solid B or better out of you!
Thanks for being here.
