Lately, it seems I’ve gotten myself a bad case of the ‘yeah-whatevers’ know what I mean? It’s that space you have to get yourself into to protect yourself from the insults and injuries of modern living.
You know like you spend hours over a post and finally get it up and nobody comments. You shrug – ‘yeah, whatever.’
Your readers feel like pimping their posts in your comments section – ‘yeah, whatever.’
You spend $1300 to fix your car only to have it blow a valve 3 weeks later – ‘yeah, whatever.’
Your family decides it’s your turn to get dumped on and criticisms fly across all modes of communication – ‘yeah, whatever.’
Sanjaya makes it to the top 12 on Idol – ‘yeah, whatever.’
You work your ass off for your company all year only to be given sea sickness for your Christmas bonus – ‘yeah, whatever.’
The old lady next door sells her house to a flip-em dude who is doing round the clock cosmetic changes on the house so he can sell it in a month – forget about any peace and quiet on the weekend – ‘yeah, whatever.’
No matter what you do or don’t eat, your ass just keeps getting bigger and bigger – ‘yeah, whatever.’
Your dog has become some neurotic old lady of a dog who barks non-stop at some invisible interloper, ‘yeah, whatever.’
The only filling you need to get re-done will cost you $189, ‘yeah, whatever.’
Gas is over $3 a gallon just as your commute to work has tripled, ‘yeah, whatever.’
Heroes is on hiatus again, ‘yeah, whatever.’
You basically just have so many nifty things to be depressed about you can’t even pick a favorite, ‘yeah, whatever.’
I’m trying though – I really am trying to get out of this funk. And no I am not bringing in the dah noise with dah funk. I’m trying to find things to be cheerful about. Like my birthday (oh boy now I’m even older) and the prospect of a new car (can’t wait to have yet another monthly payment and more insurance) my new wardrobe (cuz now I’m fatter than I was) but it’s not easy.
Pray for me. Or join in the fun of your own ‘yeah, whatevers’ At least the weekend is upon us. That’s good right?
