Skinny Bitch

I can't help myself, I have to rant a bit. That's what blogs are for right? I got together with some friends this week. We were having random girl talk, jumping from subject to subject. I was telling the girls about this cool book my husband bought me when this woman I don't know very well joined the conversation. The book happens to be called "Skinny Bitch". Don't let the title scare you. The book is actually about nutrition and contains all kinds of scientific data to back up the points the authors make. It just happens to be written in a very entertaining style. Anyway, the new chick was more than a little negative about the fact that I was reading this book. She even suggested that I was causing damage to my 8 year old daughter by having this book in our house. I'm guessing by looking at this woman that the title of the book hit a nerve with her. Of course this was unintentional on my part, but it didn't keep her from moving in for the kill. I have never met a woman that doesn't spend time second guessing her ability to raise emotionally healthy children. She definity got even with me. Sometimes I wonder why I even try to attend group functions for women only. I end up discouraged almost every time. I am still learning how to play nice with other girls I guess. Thank God men find me amusing or I might be a very lonely person.
