Day 5 – Envy: Seven things you lack and covet.
Honestly this was a tough one for me.
I’m always of the mind that you better be really careful what you covet.
Because what you think you want may be the very thing that you pray to have removed ASAP.
But for the sake of honesty, here are a four things that from time to time I wish I possessed.
1. A Husband
There are days when I really, really want one of these. I mean I do need someone to take out the trash and wash my car.
2. A Maid
I once read a book that stated that if you make more than $40,000 per year, and you don’t like to clean, then it’s ok to get a maid because your hourly rate is way higher than theirs would be. Well I make a lot more than that and I still don’t have a maid. Whenever one of my friends or family mentions that their maid is coming in that day, lets just say I turn a unique shade of green.
3. Thin Thighs
I have huge thighs. I mean the 23″ type that Luda raps about. I honestly think I could crush a small man easily. But I’m always a tad envious when I see those thin thigh chicks in their skinny jeans. My thighs actually laugh at me every time I pass a pair of skinny jeans in Macy’s.
I have absolutely no patience. I go from 0 to 10 in the blink of an eye. And don’t put me and a short bus riding customer service representative on the same phone line…it’s not pretty at all. So when I’m in the presence of long-suffering folk, I sometimes wish I could be more like them. Then I lose my patience with how patient they are and say f*&%^ it.
That’s my list. Short, sweet and funny…if I do say so myself…and I do.
