Jealously is a female trait.
I can state this with confidence because I am married to one. Some of the things that go on inside the female mind, you would not believe.
Jealousy isn’t an emotion. It’s a disease!
For instance, let’s take a typical car journey. To anywhere. Into town, even.
We are passing some females, jogging, in their lycra shorts.
I spot them before she does. WRONG! She has spotted them long before me.
As we pass them she goes “The one on the inside…is my bum bigger than hers, or would you say the same size?”
Listen up guys, she left out the third option. It’s a trap. Always answer with the third option.
“Hers isn’t big. But yours is smaller.” And I say it with a straight face! I will burn in hell yet.
Leaving my good wife and her tiny bum out of it for a while, let me tell you about some of the females from my job.
I could be delivering to one of my usual grocery stores and happen to strike up a conversation with a girl from the shop next door, while she is out having a cigarette break or whatever. If she happens to make me laugh, God have mercy on her.
“I see you were chatting to that one next door.”
“Yeah, she is funny.” I would answer.
“Don’t be fooled by her. Sometimes she comes in here, to our shop, and she has no manners whatsoever! So cheeky!”
The thing is, I would already have copped on that she was cheeky. Ladies…guys notice things too. We can sort the nice from the nasty.
I have asked my wife just now if she thinks I am a jealous person. She answered “No, definitely not.”
I can’t speak for anybody but myself. I don’t think I suffer from jealousy. I believe that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. I would like to be somewhere else, like a full time writer, but I have a feeling I am right where I am meant to be.
I admire people who succeed in attaining their dream lifestyle. But sometimes I think there is something they are sacrificing. Perhaps even sacrificing normality.
Normality is good, most of the time.
There is a first time for everything. I notice other bloggers ask questions, from time to time. This is my first question. You can lable it jealousy, or stupidity or whichever.
I am only here six weeks and I have missed a lot. Why do some posts which only contain perhaps three sentences get hundreds of Likes?
I am guessing those bloggers have proven their worth umpteen times in the past. But would I be crucified in asking Where are the emperor’s clothes?
I mean I have seen posts which go “Got up this morning. I feel great.” or something like that which have over one hundred Likes in the space of a few hours. Are these homeless people who deserve credit for making a remark like that?
I am not trying to rock the boat. Just interested, jealously, I mean genuinely.
Thank you for reading,
