Its been a while since I've been inspired to write, not that I'm having an ah ha moment or anything, I still don't really feel motivated to write but I thought why not at least try? I mean what is the worst that could happen? So here goes nothing!
I get Cosmo magazine every month because my sister knew how much I despised everything it stood for. Especially all the lame , repeated and overused "valuable advice" they publish, before she passed away she signed me up for like a five year subscription, that was her sense of humor at its finest! I guess I will probably have to renew it once it runs out now in her honor.
So the Feb issue came today and I skimmed through and it didn't take me long before I was annoyed. Here is a quote from page 39..
"Who needs a bae when you have the hottest bag to keep you company?"
Tell me you didn't have the same reaction I did? I am so irritated I decided to dedicate a whole blog post to it! So where to begin with my rant... What the hell is a "bae" -- I mean I know what it's used to describe but what is wrong with boyfriend, man, guy, significant other? Why must we use a word that even Siri tries to auto-correct? That part doesn't piss me off near as much as the fact that in classic "needy girl" ideology it is implied that as women we must be dependent upon something. Why do I need a "bae" or a "bag" to keep me company? Am I not good enough all by myself? In fact, I thoroughly enjoy my own company! Cosmo, you are welcome to keep your bag's and your bae's thank you very much!
