I've been called many names in my life. Some of them silly, some of them stupid, some of them hurtful, and some of them downright hateful and ugly. But a few days ago I heard through the grapevine that someone called me a name that had me doubled over in laughter for about 30 minutes. I seriously had to go change my pants 'cause I wet myself a little from laughing so hard. I've been called a DICTATOR folks!!!!!!
A little background information is in order I suppose. I'm President of my child's middle school PTA, which is actually a thankless job. No one truly wants to be in that position, and you are damned if you do and damned if you don't. So, part of my duty is to delegate what school administrators tell me to do. I'm like the queen bee who delegates to all of her worker bees. During the delegation process when I was transmitting a message from administration, I'm the one who gets called a dictator. Talk about shooting the messenger. SLAP, BOOM, BAM!!!!!!
Now this folks is MY idea of a dictator. I realize that Imelda Marcos wasn't technically a dictator, but she was a de facto dictator, and that's good enough for me. Plus, I LOVE her nickname of the "Steel Butterfly". That woman didn't take any shit and loved to flaunt her extravagant lifestyle, even considering it "her duty to give the poor some guidelines". Yea, I could give the poor some guidelines with those $5 million spending sprees that she used to take. YEE HAH!!!!!!! So, I'm thinkin' I need to seriously start beefin' up my shoe collection if I really want to live up to my name Deb the Dictator. Imelda was rumored to have some 2,700 pairs of shoes in her collection. My idea is to ask for a donation of a pair of designer shoes from every parent at the school. If you don't make a donation suitable to my taste, OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!!!!!
This Dictator is gonna start takin' some names and kickin' some ass (and laughin' myself silly through my newly stocked shoe racks)!!!!!!!
