I like attitude, and I can cop an attitude as good as the best of them. Today I drove over to Pudding Stone Farm & Nursery to take some pictures of the animals. They raise a lot of different kinds and love to have people come to see them.
When I got there no one was around – at least not of the human variety. There was a lot of rooster racket so I went into the barn to see what was up and to see if there were any animals there. Everything was pretty quiet except for the roosters and hens. I saw some dolled up roosters who had attitude.
I mentioned that I like attitude. What I really like is the attitude that comes from being self confident combined with having respect for all people. What I don’t like is attitude that is self-centered and mean spirited. As I have gotten older I have felt more confident in voicing my opinion when I think it will make a situation better, especially when a wrong will be righted. The trick is knowing when my two cents will make things better, and when it will make things worse.
I also find that I am more vocal when things don’t go right for me – frequently letting naughty words slip out – not really foul but just not lady-like. I guess I’ve always had difficulty being lady-like, like being refined. Hubby lovingly says I’m sometimes a little rough around the edges. I’m trying to clean up my act because I would like to be seen as gracious and a gentlewoman. Maybe not – it doesn’t sound like much fun.
