Questioning My Femininity: Tale Weaver #245

From Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie

I am an enigma to my best friend,

As a woman who doesn’t like to shop.

She asked if I were really a girl,

As real women shop ’til they drop!

But, I question that ridiculous belief

That my femininity depends on a need

To go to stores and malls or flea markets

To buy shoes, clothes, hats, or beads.

I would rather wrestle a rattlesnake,

Or maybe swim in a tank full of sharks

Than spend my day trying on clothes,

From early morning until it gets dark.

So, my friend questioned whether I

Could be considered a queen or a king.

But the truth of the whole matter is this:

Going shopping just isn’t my thing.

  1. Seems like you’re either a “shopping” girly girl or a fun tomboy who drinks beer and watches sports with the guys. What about neither? I don’t like shopping or sports… would rather sit in a corner with tea and a book. 😻

  2. I completely, totally agree with your view of shopping. If I could, I would do all of my shopping online. I hate having to put my money on such trivialities. I am glad to know I am not the only woman with such views of shopping. Thank You for sharing!
