I have always marched to the beat of my own drum and never felt the need to be like everyone else. I am an independent thinker, but lately feel like an alien while navigating the outside world and scrolling through social media. The pandemic lockdown was rough, and people had issues before, but Covid exacerbated them. I feel like I can’t relate to people on any level. When did some of this behavior become the norm?
I have so many questions and observations (and can’t wrap my head around a lot of things), so I am just going to spit them out, in no particular order.
You could call this Melany’s Mutterings:
How can you be obsessed with everything? Yes, you might like something a lot but “obsessed” is a little dramatic, don’t you think? How am I supposed to distinguish from all of your “obsessions” which one you actually like the best? There are many other words in the English language that might be better suited to describe your likes and dislikes.
What in the hell am I watching right now? Is this entertainment or torture because I can’t tell.
We all know that is not what you look like or are you that blurry in real life?
How can everything be “unprecedented” now? Definition: “Unprecedented- never done or known before”. Period.
Just because they are wearing it doesn’t mean you should too.
Why do you have a mask on in your profile picture? Would you wear that in your driver’s license picture? Actually, leave it on so I know which one of you to ignore.
Do not mistake my friend request acceptance as an invite to my DM’s. STOP IT.
Why don’t you need a license to have children? It would weed out all the stupid people who should not be having them and at least give us a fighting chance for future generations raised by good parents.
Stop it with the semantics. I will always win in a war with words and you need a dictionary.
Do people know that they should check BOTH the front and back in the mirror? Wonder if they know they can and should do that?
Certain things are too much, like your lips, hair, butt and those eyelashes that look like a spider died on your face. If you look like your eyes are closed with eyelashes on, they are not working for you. Eyebrows and eyelashes shouldn’t look like they are going to attack me or be listed on insect repellent bottles.
Yes, you should wear clothing that actually covers the crease above your thighs aka your butt and your entire breast. If the fabric does not cover these areas, this means the clothing is too small and we all know it.
Guys in tight pants, that is way too much information and I never asked for it.
Please and thank you are important words. Try them. Please and thank you.
Choose your words wisely because there is no edit button in real life.
It is called a conversation not a dissertation. If you never ask how I am doing then why expect me to care about you.
Parents, if your kids are running the show- YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG.
You can’t blame your parents forever. At a certain time – take responsibility. You can’t have it both ways.
Stop putting your children on social media. They are not your meal ticket.
Please get a job because parenting isn’t something you are doing well.
What you post on social media is forever. So, make sure it won’t embarrass you or your parents. That is a crucial guydline for everyone to know. I don’t care your age, race, or gender but it is forever like those tattoos.
If you are not old enough to actually buy your phone you should not be posting those videos. Trust me and put some clothes on.
Customer service. Does this exist anymore?
Do news anchors interview people first before they get on the air? They should because I can’t get that 2 minutes of my life back.
It is not just good enough. Does anyone have pride in their name or work anymore?
Yes, I am paying you so please do your work correctly the first time. You work, do it correctly and earn your money. You are not entitled to a damn thing.
Politeness never goes out of style. NEVER. EVER.
We can agree to disagree. That is still allowed right?
Jealousy is not a good color on anyone. It is so loud it’s blinding me.
Fakeness exhausts me and you are so bad at it.
Emotional vampires are real. If you only make withdrawals and never deposits into our relationship, then I withdraw completely.
Plans with me are never STABO (Subject To A Better Offer).
If you are always waiting for the next best offer, you will miss the best option in front of your face. Taking a little from everywhere leaves you with nothing. Committing and being dependable are good traits.
Is your memory that short or highly selective?
When did we become a “me” generation that is so self-involved and oblivious of others?
If you think this is about you, it might just be so take a good hard look at yourself.
You can’t live your life in neutral. When did settling for things become the norm?
What number am I on because I know at least 3 of you are counting?
…..And what the hell am I listening to?
**Stay snarky my friends!**
I’m “obsessed” with your blog. LOL
HAHAHA! I am obsessed with you too!
Melany, prayers you and your family have a Very Merry Christmas and a most Wonderous Happy New Year.
Love Ya Darling,
Awww thank you so much! All the same to you and your family! May this be the best year yet.
Dearest Lady, prayers you are having a rewarding day and life.
Please accept my thanks for sharing your wit and stunning beauty, both mental and physical. I find it difficult to be able to present to you the level of pleasure you successfully provide regularly.
Thank you from the whole of my heart, not just the bottom of it.
Please keep up your desirable work and talent.
What a lovely comment! Thank you! This made my day. Happy you enjoyed it!!
Wow! Talk about hitting the nail on the head. I’ve been so busy with work during the Vid that I loose track of society going off the rails. Will discuss over some holiday cheer soon. Happy Hanukkah.
Hi! I thought it did too! Thank you for reading and the comment. Yes, some holiday cheer celebrations sounds awesome! Happy holidays and happy new year!!
This is Gold. I find myself relating to your thoughts. Fairly accurate dig on mostly everything these days. Yet written in a way to promote a giggle and smile to those of us who seems constantly in the ” WTF ” state of mind. Thank you Mel. Keep shining and inspiring. Hugs to you and Teddy. Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas! Cheers!
I am so happy to see you over here and thank you for reading and commenting! You rock my friend! Happy to give some lols since we all need it! Happy it worked for you b/c WTF goes through my mind constantly on a daily basis. Happy holidays to you and your family and thank you for all the support always. Cheers to a better year – with less WTFS for all of us.
Cheers from Miami. As always you hit a bases loaded Home run. Your posts are always on point. No need to argue with anyone who don’t like your posts. They are not paying attention. You have had my attention since the first post I read over 1o years ago. Keep them coming my Good Friend. You Rock !!
Hello from Arizona! How is Miami treating you? Always good to see your name here Miguel! Thank you for always being a supportive friend!!!
Yes, I am obsessed with Melany as well. I find her humor refreshing and light. With a twist of logic and a splash of optimism. In other words, she’s just damn hot!
HAHA! Thank you very much! Appreciate the kind words and might I add….you have a way with words. Stay tuned for more….Thank you!
Oh how I have missed your blogs! This one is l spot on and made me laugh so hard but at the same time I had people pop into my head for every one. The filters people use makes me laugh cause when someone comments “you look amazing” they are always like “ah thanks doll, you too” and all that goes though my head is that is not what you look like. Oh and don’t get me started on the eyelashes!
Oh! I have missed writing! It is cathartic for me and thank you for saying this, reading and commenting. Maybe I should do a full post about filters and eyelashes? LOLOL!!
Good Lord you are playing my tune.
Also, no fish lips. We all know your lips don’t look like that and if you think that is ‘kissable’ you are hoping to land one of the many fish in the sea. Or a trout!
Good to see you posting again!
OMG! I can’t believe people still post with those lips! It is beyond ridiculous. LOLOL!
So good to see your name here! Thank you for reading and the comment! Good to write again! I missed it!
