Out Of Sync For Women's Weekend
I better get over this pretty damned quick; the season is only a few weeks away and 6-day work weeks (only 3 weeks away) will be the norm for the next 4 months, not the exception.
All that said, this is Women's Weekend here (which was to have begun yesterday, but didn't. Another reason for the out-of-whack sensation.); days of workshops and nights of dances & entertainers - this year including Suzanne Westenhoefer - plus Sunday Brunches at local restaurants to end the festivities on a high note.
Unfortunately, my experience began today on a very, very low note. Miscommunication and obnoxious ill-informed dykes almost sent me over the wall. Stupidity and arrogance are not endearing qualities and I don't play well with anyone who is either, or both. Confronted by 2 rude, vulgar, obese dykes who attempted to bully me, I did something I really dislike having to do. Let's just say I didn't spar with them, just over-rode all arguments and accusations. Ultimately, they were defeated and deflated and just STFU until one of the locosguys was on the scene.
I don't want to spoil what promises to be a fantastic, empowering weekend for a few hundred women by passing judgement because of today's silly drama, so I will write about the weekend after the fact; putting things into perspective after the dust settles.
The restaurant is hosting a Happy Hour for attendees today through Sunday, as well as offering discounts on all menu items. Did I mention that the restaurant is also a primary sponsor of the weekend? Well, now I have. And to my mind, that makes the rude behavior even more heinous.
Wish me luck.
And so it goes.
