She May Dress Cuter, But I’m Nice And She’s A Butthole!

I really thought I was losing my coolness. Back in the day I could run on very little sleep. I could stay up all night having fun, and get up and go to work as if I’d slept all night. These days, if I’m out past 7pm I start getting worried that I might get in the bed late. Plus, I just enjoy being home in my pajamas. Geez that sounds horribly lame! Well, last night I gained some cool points! I didn’t get home until 9:30! That’s P.M. (you know, at night!) just in case you weren’t sure. And I left straight from work! I. Am. Cool.

My friend Tina and I went to eat dinner, then I made the mistake of agreeing to go shopping with her. She’s sparkly. I’m not. She likes to wear bright colors. I don’t. Unbeknownst to me, Tina had made it her life’s mission to help me pick out my Easter outfit. Oh! My! Gosh! She’s got to be the bossiest person on the face of the earth! “Put that back! That’s all you ever wear!” “You’re not getting that. You have a million shirts just like that one!” “Uh uh. That looks horrible. I don’t like it!” “Let’s go try all this crap on just so we can put it all back, because none of it will look good.” That’s the kind of torture I was subjected to. Feel sorry for me!

Finally, at our last stop, I found something that met her approval. I was immediately filled with The Spirit! I ran through the store praising God, arms stretched toward the Heavens, singing praises and shouting. People stopped dead in their tracks, staring at the lunatic who was running around and knocking over displays. Finally I collapsed from exhaustion.

Tina was not as “Spirit filled” as I, because she’d not yet found a shirt to match her danged palazzo pants. I don’t wear palazzo pants, so I have no idea what looks good with them. I gave her a taste of her own medicine. “Nope. That’s ugly.” “You have a million shirts just like that!” “You need way less sparkle!” When out of nowhere, like an angel, there appeared a woman holding a pair of palazzo pants! I know I heard the angels singing when she said, “Maybe you should try this shirt.” Finally! Someone who might offer me a glimmer of hope of getting home before midnight! God was showing me favor once again! He’s so sweet!

Turns out, we really liked this girl! We ended up exchanging phone numbers, inviting her to church, and planning a dinner date! Not to mention, the cashier was wanting to be our friend too. You know you’re super fun when people ask to hang out with you. I’m just saying.

Even though I’m draggin’ butt this morning from lack of sleep; it was well worth the sacrifice to hang out with my bossy friend Tina (whom I love), and to make a new friend, Kesia! Plus, if I do say so myself, I’m pretty sure I’ll look really cute on Easter, all thanks to God and Tina! Momma always said you should listen to those who are older, with more experience! Lesson learned! Again. With God and Tina all things are possible! 🙂

She looks so innocent doesn’t she? Pshhhh!

Don’t be bossy to those people who are in your care, but set an example for them. Then when Christ the Chief Shepherd returns, you will be given a crown that will never lose its glory. All of you young people should obey your elders. In fact, everyone should be humble toward everyone else. The Scriptures say, “God opposes proud people, but he helps everyone who is humble.” 1 Peter 3-5
