It’s been a hard day at the office for me. Rules, deadlines, federal laws … all kinds of things getting in the way of me doing what I want, when I want.
6:16 pm and I’m getting ready to head out the door but decide to take a quick peak at the traffic back-up on I-90 and sit myself back down in my chair. What’s a woman to do with a little extra time on her hands? Surf up Margaret and Helen (best friends for 60 years and counting).
And I laugh so hard I almost peed my pants.
Read “Sarah Palin Called a Family Meeting and The Rabbit Died.” I can’t help myself, but laugh out loud I did. Earlier today I read a commentary about women and politics, and how the media reduces powerful women to dress sizes, whompa whompa shoes and their sex appeal. It was a good article; well considered and thought-provoking. I think Jennifer Pozner is right — there is a double standard, still, and women in politics and business leadership roles get judged by a different standard.
But Jennifer Pozner didn’t make me laugh. She didn’t make me want to write a blog posting. And some days, you just need to laugh. Tomorrow I’ll deal with sexists journalists and conservative pundits. Today, a little Margaret and Helen with my drive home.
