Today I made a post. And then I looked back at it and it was not the kind of post this Lauren wants to make. It was in fact such a downer, I am not going to post it at all. But I’m still going to tell you the meat of the issue (that is one gross term isn’t it?)
It was about someone I don’t like. I feel like I’ve mentioned it so many times, I’m blue in the face…. I think I’m done with it.
Cue the applause from my friends who have had to hear about it for years. Yes, I think I’m done. I have come to notice lately that this one particular person who super doesn’t like me… also doesn’t really mean a hill of beans to me either. And although I dislike having to interact with them, what can I really do about it? I would prefer she leave my bubble of existence, but it’s not going to happen. So I’m going to grin and bear it.
I feel the best way I can make this analysis is by saying this person is like a zit on picture day. They show up out of nowhere and try ruin my day, but then I remember I can always Photoshop it away!
Now, I’m not a saint or anything, I’m really just trying here. And I can accept this certain person and I both have flaws. I am here to say one of mine is not being crazy about her, but still I’m nice enough to not want to let her bring me down. I still think her dislike of me is unfounded, because I’m not as unscrupulous as her insecurities, or more so her jealousies would have her think.
I’m just a girl with a pink polka dot shirt, and a smile after all.
And that is how I’m going to stay. I would like to take this time to tell you I am going to lead myself away from the “Darkness of Suck” and into the “Light of Awesome.”
So with that thought I leave you this really bad rendition of Liberty Leading the People by Eugène Delacroix:
I’m Outie. I’m going to go be giggly somewhere.

Thank you so kindly, friend. I am really having a great day instead of being cranky that I was around her! I think it was because I was thinking about short milk… it can’t even go on roller coasters…
Oh! I didn’t even think of all the amazing roller coaster rides short milk misses out on! Plus, they always have to take up their trousers. They really did get a bum deal.
It really is devastating existence they have… and they can also never become Rockettes (but me neither).
It would be so nice if we could just Photoshop certain people out of the picture. My person says she’s grown the most because of people she didn’t want to be around – so they do have some purpose in our lives.
That is really great advice, next time I’m in this kind of situation. I’m going to try to remember that!
♫Growing as a person♫
This person is clearly unhappy and taking it out on you. You don’t have to tolerate it. I always tell my boys: you don’t like everyone, so why should everyone like you? BUT, that’s no excuse for meanness. I read your other post about your hair, and you did the right thing: answered with truth and dignity, and walked away. Keep doing that.
I’m going to give it my best shot, just like Pat Benatar.
And fire away….
Sounds like you’ve turned a corner, Lauren! Good for you!
Awesome cartoon, as well!
Thanks! I feel really bad for posting a doodle of a famous and inspiring painting. I have a feeling that Victor Hugo would have not been into this doodle enough to make write an epic story. However I would like to see a doodle of Abraham Lincoln Jimmy become a movie…
You realize you’ve let your arch nemesis occupy your blog now, don’t you? Granted, by me pointing that out to you it occurs to me that I’m throwing rocks at glass houses….
Hahaha! Good point. I have let them infiltrate! However, I my brain gets really funny when I get angry, and in 2 or 3 days my anger is really just humorous even to me!
