Ruminations of a Red Dirt Hussy

Hell, no, I’m not normal. And neither are you.

This is for my friend who’s in the middle of a shit storm and feels really, really awful. She knows who she is.

  1. I love you dearly.
  2. You said it yourself: “Emotions are just so freaking emotional.
  3. Feelings are not reality, and they will not change reality.
  4. Not all emotions are bad, but some really, really suck:  
    1. Your kids are serious trouble and you’re mad and sad and scared.
    2. Your grandchild is neglected and abused and he doesn’t have the words to tell you, so you have to read it in his eyes.
    3. Your husband is blind, deaf, stupid (or all three) to how you feel.
    4. Getting out of bed requires five cups of tea, four prayers to the Goddess of Remaining Upright, three firemen, and a winch truck. (See Rise and Shine).
    5. You’re going to have to do all it all again tomorrow. The Sat Cat said in his Diary, and you believe, that like Sisyphus, you are bound to hell.  
    6. You think you see the light at the end of the tunnel , but alas, it’s a Greyhound headed for Screw You, TeXas.(See Where’s the Great Big Enema Bag When You Need It).
    7. But there’s good news, too.
      1. You are a fierce mother, and the powers that be had no idea you were kicking ass and taking names. You might have lost a battle, but you won that freaking war. Score!
      2. Another case of kicking ass and taking names, but this time you won both the battle and the war.
      3. Marriage isn’t Super Glue. It’s duct tape, at most. And I told you, you can lick the sticky off that tape and walk away. It works with serial killers, after all. (See Ten Simple Tips for Avoiding the Common Serial Killer).
      4. Firemen are cute.
      5. The Sad Cat is just a cat. I’m surprised he can spell Sisyphus.
      6. You’ve got a ticket for that bus, and Screw You, TeXas, will not know what hit it. By the time you turn that Greyhound around, TeXas will want to give its ownself an enema.
      7. And when your personal shit storm is done, remember: You’re crazy smart, gentle in spirit when you’re not putting the fear of you into somebody, loved by many, and you’re on your way to making the world a better place to be.
      8. Put the ball bat in the wood chipper. You don’t need it any more.
      9. See #1.




  1. I don’t want to comment on the blog because I don’t want to blow my cover, but so many people need to hear exactly those words. You’re freaking brilliant!

    Thanks for helping me get through this. I love you.
