I do this dumb thing. I am so tired of it. Ok, here is the deal. I don't acknowledge things. It is like I act clueless. I'm not dumb or clueless. So why do I do it? Here are a few examples:
1. At dinner the other night (with my mom's group) I let someone call me "Angie" all night.
2. When my friend brought a book over for me to read, I pretended that I had never read it before. Although I had and it sucked.
3. When someone is going on and on about a new movie, that I have seen, I don't speak up and admit that I have seen it.
Why do I do this?
I feel like it is awkward to correct people. I know who they are talking to.
I think it is easier to just listen to a book review than stop people cold by saying, "ALREADY READ IT!!!".
And the movie thing, well, I don't want people to know how many movies I get to see. After all, I am a busy mom with small children and a working husband. When do I find the time? I don't want to explain that I love movies, they are my escape and that I go to a lot of 10:45pm movies after my family is in bed. (and bite me!)
BUT NO MORE!
My name is A.S.H.L.E.Y. and last week, I saw, The Nanny Diaries. And YES, I did read that book.
