I heard the news today, oh boy.
It’s so pathetic that with all else that is going on in the world the media chooses to poke fun at a Miss USA pageant contestant, Marissa Powell, fumbling up her answer during the opinion segment of the contest: http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/06/17/create-education-better-miss-utah-botches-answer-at-miss-usa-pageant/
Perhaps she had momentary stage fright.
Perhaps she had a brain freeze.
Don’t we all at one point or another?
No, I guess not, all of you are just PERFECT.
This reminds me of last week when I was in a Hallmark store trying to find a card for my father-in-law. Having a brain freeze (or a pre-senior moment) I mistakenly asked the sales person, “Where are the daughter-in-law cards?”
Boy, did she rip me one! “WE DON’T CARRY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW CARDS!” she scolded in a haughty, condescendingly annoying 1898 school marm tone. (And she was at least 10 years younger than me!)
Excuse me, I’m so sorry I’m not Miss Perfect like you are! (And P.S. – my I.Q. is 145, that is pretty good, so I am not stupid and even if I was I’m still a GOOD PERSON and that counts much more than brains in my book because brains doesn’t = class!) Maybe YOU are the dumb one for not putting two and two together and realizing, “Yeah, I know what you mean, Father’s Day is coming up, you want a father-in-law card.”
It’s awfully pathetic to live in a world where everything is based on perfectionism and making a lot of money. Where people have no patience for others and are always seeking an opportunity to look better than someone else. That’s it, knock them down, throw them under the bus and kick ’em while you’re at it.
Oh, yeah, I bet America is digging the Miss Utah faux pau BIG TIME, because how can anyone possibly be so gorgeous and smart too? Miss Utah must be punished for being so good looking, so let’s all make a great big deal about her mistake. Yeah, this is NEWS! Stop the presses!
Thanks America, for once again putting women back to the 1800s.
Well, Miss Utah, if by any chance you are reading this, as an older woman, I can give you some sincere sisterly advice and leave you with the words of my dear beloved late grandmother: “Tell them all to go fuck themselves!”
