I’m having a moment

Yes, I’m having a moment and I’m going to drag your ass right into the middle of it.

I want to share this moment with you, whether you want me to or not and I want you to listen except, I don’t actually want your advice.

I’m going to have this moment and I am not going to accept that PMS is the problem, because the truth is, there is no PMS happening here.

I will also not have it blamed on my simply being a woman and that we women are emotional creatures who tend to have these moments without reason or logic behind it. This moment was not sponsored by my womanly hormones.

I’m also not going to accept that I wouldn’t be having this moment if I simply got out a little more, because if you were actually paying attention to the daily events in my life you’d see that there is no way possible I could get out a little more just for me.

During this moment I will begin to raise my voice at key points. Those key moments are the ones I want you to pay special attention to, you see I’m doing my best to drill it into your head that this is the reason for this moment. Be warned, there will be many reasons and I want you to hear them all.

It would be best if upon hearing my reasons you didn’t point out the condradictions, because quite simply there are none. It just requires you to listen to all my reasons in full to see that for yourself.

I will also swear, a lot, during this moment. I don’t want to hear that it’s unlady like, or rude, or that your innocent ears haven’t ever heard such profanity. I know full well you hear worse and you’re just going to have to live with it.

It is entirely valid to bring up events that took place 3 years ago, just as long as they make some reference to what this moment is all about now. I would also expect, that if at the end of this moment I am reduced to tears because of something that happened to me in high school, that you should take the chance to console me. It’s either that or you pay for therapy.

There will be things to blame, you are probably one of them, but I don’t want you to take it personally. I know you can’t fix it, but you could find something to make me feel better. It would be nice, but probably best left until after this moment is all over. I will not take kindly to having my moment ruined by an act of kindness.

I will also use this moment to point out all the DIY crap around the house that needs doing. I’m already pissed off at this point, so what the hell.

Uttering Oh god here we go again is in no way being supportive of my moment and I will take the opportunity to remind you that you said years ago that you’d listen no matter what. No matter what does include this moment.

You are not allowed to compare me to any member of my family during this moment, so saying things like you’re just like your Mother will provoke a much longer moment than originally intended.

But I will promise you something now. If you can just sit back and take in this moment with me, I promise it will all be over before you know it and we can get back to some sort of normality very soon.

After this moment I will still love you just as much as before it started and respect you even more than before you and I shared this moment together.

But just so you know, we are not allowed to laugh about this moment until exactly one year has passed, so save your goddamn jokes until then.

So just in case you weren’t listening, in case you missed the entire point of this moment, what I’m really trying to say here is…..

When the friggin’ hell are we going out to dinner for a little you and me time?

    haha, I didn't write this directly to my other half to be fair. I wrote it simply based on moments I've had before as a woman, knowing that most of us have been there in one way or another at some point!

    In fact my partner and I just did go to dinner for a little us time so, I'm totally not fishing. I just love to write and love to write from a place others can relate.

    Oh, this is the ultimate in ultimate when it comes to blog posts!!! You rocked it!! You owned it! I've sooo been there too. Especially the rolling of the eyes and "Oh God, here we go again…". I should make my husband read this post and say, "See, you're the one with the problem, not ME because evidently MOST women feel this way too".

    Stopping by from SITS!

    AND I THOUGHT I was the only one feeling this! lol. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Nice vent. Love it, but I’m a woman. No way any man would sit through it and actively listen. Best to just get to the last line as soon as possible and vent on bloggyland.

    Stopping by from SITS, and this was my favorite line from your fantastic post:

    “You are not allowed to compare me to any member of my family during this moment, so saying things like you’re just like your Mother will provoke a much longer moment than originally intended.”

    Hilarious and fantastic post here. I too loved the line about not comparing you to a member of your family. Thanks for a good laugh.

    • mesina says:

      Sarah and Allyson – so you both liked the family comparison eh? haha, I loved that line too. There’s nothing worse than suddenly being pointed out you are just like your Mother when you’re mad. NOTHING!! Thanks for stopping in you guys!

  14. Debbi says:

    Did your moment get acknowledged in an acceptable manor? I hope so!! I love the line about using your moment to bring up DIY stuff around the house..I’m guilty of that. Happy SITS day!

    i get those moments too, all the time, that they have ceased to be moments and became a way of life. stopping by from SITS!

  16. Greetings from Italy via SITS. It’s 7am and I should be getting the kids out of bed ready to march down a mountainside to kindergarten. Instead I’m rolling on the floor laughing at this too-true post. You have an instant fan!

  17. JoJo says:

    Ah I loved it! Whenever I start ranting I’m compared to my mother too. Drives me crazy! Stop comparing and listen to what I’m saying!
    I loved how you tied up the whole thing with your adorable dinner proposal. It was the perfect ending to your little moment.
    Happy SITS

    It’s OK to have a moment. And it’s OK to have it just like you need to, as a woman, unique and special, with all the emotions and thoughts that go along with it. Thank you for sharing your moment. I’m sure many of us have been there.
    Happy SITS day!

    I think that I need to start saying “I’m having sane moments” because lately I’ve been living in moments like the ones you described above! lol

    That’s just fabulous. I think this needs to be printed out and posted on the fridge.

    Is it totally cool that I laughed AND cringed in recognition?

    And here’s the best part- since I had my kiddo 7 months ago, I technically don’t even HAVE PMS again yet. Except I do. Which is confusing- for my husband- but totally justified- by me.

    Happy SITS day!

    love from Chicago,

  22. dddiva says:

    Bwahahahaha but seriously why oh why do they blame every damn thing on pms or hormones when it is obvious we are reacting to them? 😉

  24. HA! I figure by now the moment has passed but it’s still fun to read about it. Many years ago there was a song/poem by Gil Scott Heron called, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.” It had lyrics like, “The Revolution will not go better with Coke, The Revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox, The Revolution will not be right back after a message from our sponsor..The Revolution will not be televised.” etc. For some reason, this post made me think about it, as in “This moment will not help you have it your way, This moment will not keep you moving forward… This moment will not be televised.” And, I’m thinking that’s a good thing!

    *ROFL* This is so true. Especially pointing out all the DIY crap that’s not done.. heh heh.

    I so hate it when they blame hormones or pms. What they fail to realize is that we can only turn a blind eye to just so many things so when we do get truly angry about something it all just comes spewing out.

    I should realy feel more sorry for them… but I don’t. 😉 Happy SITS day!

    Now was that so hard to understand? I don’t think so. I don’t know what all those men are complaining about. 😉
