Two odd BM situations… ONE glaring reason!!!
I hate that so many of my posts revolve around Mother Russia…
but she really is a pip.
A while back I posted an odd little bit about her profile picture on the facebook (I know… the irony of the worlds biggest facebook basher bringing it up in a post does not escape me). How she all of a sudden was posing beside a poster of Scarlett O’Hara, which was odd for two reasons… 1) Scarlett O’Hara is a HUGE deal to me… the entire story of Gone With the Wind is pretty special to me, but Scarlett in particular. There’s all kinds of memorabilia all around our house and a huge painting of Scarlett in our sitting room, which she’s seen plenty of times! And 2) because DH confirmed that she’s never shown any interest in the story or the movie!!! Weird right…
And then, out of absolutely no where!!! She’s decided that she wants to “make more time with children…” “I do activities with SS6”. Ok, cool. We’ve actually been hoping that she’d take *any* interest at all in her own kids and start doing more “motherly” things with them… but what she chose to “get involved with” was really weird.
She’s known since this child’s birth that DH has been waiting for him to be old enough to join scouts… DH was in the organization from age 6 till senior year in high school (Eagle Scout I think… whatever the highest level you can reach is) and his father was a pack leader, DH is also uber-outdoorsy and is totally into the running, camping, fishing, climbing trees thing. So SS6 is old enough this year… *yippee*
What does that giant Russian giraffe do..? “I want to take son camp” “Is no fair… you can not have everything”. Now… we’ve invited her to get involved with basketball, soccer, chess club, the works!!! Why in the hot holy hell would she want to do BOY SCOUTS?!? She hates being outside longer than the walk from her house to her car… and it’s flippin BOY SCOUTS!!! Am I wrong or isn’t that traditionally a father/son thing? So I start thinking she’s on the warpath to stick it to DH… cause she knows how LONG he’s been waiting for this… and then the big revelation…
Her “best male buddy” from work… who she’s been “friends” with for years…. Who’s SON is also in SS6’s scout pack… is SS6’s den leader!!!
And guess what his name is..?
“Rhett”… no shit.
That explains a whole hell of a lot.
She’s so pathetic.
