Everyone has one, no matter how irrelevant the topic might be to their actual life. And everyone, according to every commentator on the Internet who can’t actually substantiate their argument, is entitled to an opinion. You know the way it goes. A person says something that is perhaps inflammatory or offensive, a handful of people provide an argument to the contrary and the original comment-maker says “Well, I’m entitled to my opinion!” or something along those lines. They use it with authority, as if their opinions are sacrosanct.
Okay, this is getting out of hand. So much magic rock fuckery is appearing in my social feeds and it’s starting to get me hot under the collar. I do not ‘like’ or ‘follow’ crystal healing pages. Shocking, I know!
The reason I am getting flooded with crystal propaganda, I think, is because the shills for Big Crystals tend to target their advertising at a certain demographic. My demographic. Women of a certain age. Apparently, we all like pretty rocks. I mean, that’s kinda fair. I do like pretty rocks. But I don’t like being sold overpriced pretty rocks that come with a lot of bullshit promises.
Wanna hear about something that I’m finding really frustrating at the moment? Trying to join a gym. There are gyms everywhere and everyone I’ve spoken to at gyms? Totally fine and lovely. They have to be or who would ever join up?
It’s not so much the joining of the gym that’s frustrating, it’s the cost.
You can spend approximately $12-$30+ a week on gym membership. It’s not cheap. For those of us doing the 38-40 hour a week grind, it means using your gym at least 3 times a week, for good value as well as good health. For those of us that work ridiculous hours, there are even 24 hour access gyms, for your 3 a.m. workout or whatever.
Have you seen The Transformed Wife on Facebook? If not, FYI, she doesn’t fold down into a car or anything cool like that. The Transformed Wife is like a regular woman who is married, but says she spent more than two decades in a “difficult marriage” before transforming into a religiously submissive wife. She often shares biblical verses that tell women how they should be behaving, according to long-dead men. She posts them online with her interpretation of what they mean. Then, people comment and politely question or disagree with her and get banned from her page.
