This week’s word is…
I found this word on Schott.Blog and identified immediately.
The idea that everyone else is having a better weekend than I am is very familiar.
As you all are aware, I spend quite a large part of my time on twitter chatting with my buddies and I can honestly say I have never, ever talked up my social activities.
If anything I frequently bemoan how dull and routine my life is!
A typical Saturday tweet would read:
“Off for the highlight of my exciting weekend! Trip to Tesco. #Livingthelife”
My weekends are incredibly mediocre – breakfast, walk the dogs, bit of shopping, lunch, potter, dinner, TV and wine, bed. Yeah, I know… you feel the need to sit down or take a cold shower now don’t you?
At least, with age, I no longer really believe everyone else is having a weekend much more exciting than mine.
As with wondering if everyone else is having more and better sex than you, I think the longer we live our lives the more realistic we become that people are mostly the same. The chances are that most people you know are having more, or perhaps less, the same amount of sex that you’re having. Likewise, I suspect the majority of my mates most likely spend their weekends catching up on all those little chores that get neglected during the week, shopping, cleaning, laundry, and are quite happy to collapse in front of Dr. Who or X Factor with a beer or wine and a takeaway.
One thing I can assure you… you will never, ever have to feel week-endvy towards me… unless dog walking and general lolling about gets you hot under the collar!
How do you spend your weekends? Mundane routine or are you off sky-diving and bungee-jumping?
