I know you are but what am I?

Ok, I'm not a big fan of MySpace. Even though more and more adults are signing up, I still tend to think of it as a "kid thing." If I'm going to blog, I'll do it here. If I want to chat, I'll open up my favorite IM program. I'm just not all that into maintaining yet another site that would open myself up to the crap, actual and potential, that surely would follow. I prefer a little more world-wide anonymity than MySpace profiles allow.

But that doesn't mean that I don't surf MySpace, catching up with the goings on of many other people, some of whom I don't even know. Ok, I'm nosy, I'll admit it. With some time on my hands. But you'd be surprised at the information people are willing to post about themselves and their lives. Then again, probably not.


One such poster caught my eye, so I travelled her message link and read about her.

This young, local (to me) woman is 25 years old, has 4 kids (one of which is a freshman in high school) and is expecting yet another in about 2 months. Do the math, I did. Not a high school graduate, but from what I could deduce, the poster might have her G.E.D.

Might. But I seriously doubt it.

In one of her blog posts, she wrote this:

"Just because we are from 'down the bayou' doesnt mean that we are idiots. Cause we are far from being retards of a mixbreed."

Of course you can see how I would certainly disagree with her statement. Especially considering her initial four word message which led me to her site..... it simply read, in all sincerity I am sure: "Is you off today?"

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a prime example of what is wrong with America today. And sadly, she is too blind to see it.

Honey, you ain't that far off. Trust me.
