There is nothing in the world like hanging with your girls! I mean seriously I crave girl time constantly. After living 9 years with a man I appreciate girl time MORE THAN EVER. Can I hear a holler out there from all you ladies??? Have you ever been so frustrated with the testosterone in your home and the work it takes to communicate with a male? In those moments I think, If I was talking with my sister or one of my girls there would be no problem here...we understand each other...things do not EVEN HAVE to be said, we just know! When I get to this place I pick up the phone and dial the ladies and get a girl's night set up on the books.
Last weekend I had just that with my sister and a wonderfully dear friend. It was happy hour and we hit the local watering hole decked out in our summer best. The time was filled with that non-stop kind of talking where you find your self exhilarated by the discussion. It's not like we discussed anything of serious consequence. Mostly we talked sex, love, menstrual cycles, fashion, and our frustration with the male brain. Once we got a few cocktails down things were in full swing. We laughed so hard we cried. My friend and I were really amused by my sisters tales of dating. She made us horse laugh with the stories of all the idiot men out there. In turn I think we scared her away from marriage with our tales of boring sex, annoying man habits, and the daily grind of raising a family. But in the end we raised our glasses and cheered GIRL TIME!
Walking back after the happy hour I stared humming "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" in my head. In my opinion it is one of the best songs ever written, a mantra of sorts for all of us ladies. No matter what life situation you are in this is YOUR song!
"That's all they really want
When the working day is done
Girls-- they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun
Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun"
Isn't it true...that's all we really want, some fun? So the next time as a married lady you are laying there and your husband is trying to caress your body and get into your pants, but all you can think about is the health of your cuticles, call your girls. Or as a single lady when you run into a one night stand and he runs away and hides you've gotta call your girls!
WE JUST WANNA HAVE SOME FUN!
