I used to be an avid reader of both Cosmo and Glamour. Used to, as in, when I could afford to buy frivolous things like magazines… I can’t remember which one had this column, but I always used to love the “Hey, it’s OK” page. It basically listed things that were actually OK to do, despite maybe being slightly frowned up by someone, somewhere. Think “eating a whole tub of Ben & Jerry’s after a particularly long day at the office,” or “wearing your hair in a ponytail because you’re sick of fighting with the Summer humidity…”
In that same spirit, I will not apologize for…
… buying a pair of moccasins just because I had a couple DSW coupons.
… being more excited to go home this weekend than I was for my birthday last weekend.
… telling the new tenants in my building that the backyard is not, in fact, communal.
… being a birthday card snob. Paper Source or bust!
… planning out my entire Labor Day Weekend a week in advance.
… telling my best friend when she did something that made me upset. Better to talk about it than just be mad about it, right?
… being freaked out when people my age announce their engagements.
… giving my fake name/number to weird guys I meet in bars. Girl’s gotta protect herself somehow!
What aren’t you apologizing for these days?
