I Confess...

I do my best to be a good person. I try in earnest to keep bad thoughts out of my head; especially when they are about other people. I try to be polite. I try to be nice and make nice. My mother taught me to bite my tongue anytime I felt the need to say something mean about others. She also worked to instill a sense of class and decorum within me. For the most part, I think I'm successful. However, there are split second moments when such bad moments make brief appearances in my life...

  • I ordered my first Pina Colada of the day at the resort. The bartender, simply smiled and said, "Oh, already? You're my first alcoholic beverage of the day." A veil of shame fell over me.
  • Under the Hawaiian sun and beneath the cloudy judgement of pina coladas, I ranted a little too long to other Doc wives. (However, I will say this ultimately worked to my benefit.)
  • I gave all the other Doc wives holy hell (again, while under the influence, thanks to another Doc Wife who introduced me to Smirnoff Pineapple vodka) for not showing up to a reception and leaving me there with their husbands and dry conversation. As if I'm really interested in how the equipment in the OR should be reorganized or how this hospital or that hospital has an extra three feet in their OR and we don't.  I was the only spouse there. The other Doc Wives informed me it was not open to spouses, but "Thanks for representing." Thanks, Doc H.
  • I spewed at beach boy, Rico, "Maui really needs to repeal its 'no alcohol on the beach' ordinance!"
  • As I slipped on my brand new Prada's, I could only think,  "the devil wears Prada- take THAT, you haters!"

Thank you! I feel lighter, better. I feel as if I'm just emerging from the confessional booth at church. Maybe I should grab my beads...

  1. haha sometimes it's good to things off your chest, especially through a blog and anonymously! ;) I'm the same way, I always bite my tongue, but it doesn't mean I don't think it!! lol. That cracks me up about the reception and how Doc H didn't inform you that it wasn't open to spouses! Gotta love husbands ;)

    1. We all have those thoughts that run through our head, but would never dream of vocalizing them, huh?!

  2. ha ha, I have to write a post like this at least once every two weeks about working in the fitting room. Sometimes biting your tongue only lasts so long before you MUST SPILL!

  3. That bartender should have had the veil of shame, not you... ;)

    I'd be peeved if I was the only spouse at the reception - at the very least they should have forewarned you that there would be dry conversations about things no one really cares about. ;)

    What?? No alcohol on the beach? Crazy!

    1. I've been the receptions before, so I knew what I was in for as far as conversation was concerned...it's always blood and guts, no matter what we're eating.

      Who ever heard of a dry beach?

    1. Here's the worst part... I HAD to tip him! He knows all the ladies lined up are doc wives and he worked the pool bar everyday. It was only Wednesday and I feared retaliation in the form of weak drinks for the remainder of the trip!

  5. Well, at least you remember it.

  6. Lol...his first alcoholic beverage of the day! First of all, pina coladas have coconut and pineapple. It's basically a smoothie, so you're fine. Also, this man works at a resort! He had to be lying, because I'm telling you that in the Dominican Republic, I saw people mixing rum and fruit juice for breakfast! I probably just would have been like, "Score! So, I get the extra alcohol, right? *wink wink*" It's not like you have to ever see his judgmental face again! :D

    1. That's exactly why I didn't order a mai tai first! LOL!

  7. Hey, pineapple is a fruit and therefore counts as breakfast. See, it's all in the justification and rationalization! I am the master of both. Haha!
