Livin’ the Life, Yo

As most of y’all have probably figgered out by now, I’m a 30-something ol’ spinster lady who lives by herself with a cat.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I do love my dear sweet Chuckweasel to oodles and pieces… but there IS something to be said for having a “S.O” (significant other) who does not “L.I.” (live-in)!

So, without further ado, I present:  The Benefits of Living Alone.

  1. The bathroom door is a matter of CHOICE.
  2. Both the remote control and the thermostat are MINE, bitches.
  3. All leftovers fall under my domain.  If there’s Chinese food when I leave for work, there will still be Chinese food when I get home.
  4. I can eat in both the bed and the bathtub without getting any shit for it (although the bed will narc you out if you’re not careful).
  5. 3 words:  Twix.  For.  Breakfast.
  6. 3 more words.  Popcorn.  For.  Dinner.
  7. I don’t have to bust my ass cleaning house until it’s so funky I can’t stand it… and I can stands me some funk.
  8. I can drink wine out of a coffee cup without embarrassment.
  9. If someone farted, it was me.  Or sometimes Calpurnia Jean (if that happens, RUN).
  10. I can crank up the iPod and do my patented “Never-Was-a-Cheerleader-But-Damn-Wouldn’t-I-Have-Been-A-Good-One” dance routines without being interrupted by laughter. (You don’t know from talent, Chuckweasel!)

And an extra-special “Why Does She Tell Us This Stuff?” bonus:  If I think my feet may smell, I can check without trying to be smooth about it.

  1. Oh I totally agree with this whole list. Living alone has so many advantages, that list can go on forever.
