I’ve noticed something recently… it seems people like to make cat jokes at me, and when I say people… I mean people who have children.
I get it, the fact that I’m single and childless in my 30′s makes them uncomfortable, they want to talk about the trials and tribulations of being a parent but feel I can’t relate, so instead they crack cat lady jokes.
I have an idea though… how about instead we talk about movies, t.v shows, books, music, food, Lindsay Lohan’s long-term career plans or even recent events in the news. Ask me what the f**k I do with all my childless time, I have some good stories and am involved in some cool things. And although I don’t need the specifics about potty training or vomit, tell me stories about your kids, I promise I don’t hate them or anything.
Doesn’t that sound easier than putting me down because I made different life choices than you?
But hey, if the fact that I have 2 cats (technically 1) is all you have against me, maybe it’s not my life you have the problem with…
