Ain't That Some Shit Saturday



We have one saying (in the south, particularly my family) for many different scenarios.  It's the same words, "Ain't that some shit," but pitch and how quickly or slowly it is said gives you an idea of the situation.

     If something good happens like somebody wins something it is said a little fast and high pitched. (Think of Eddie Murphy asking "do you believe" something,)  If something bad happens, like someone dies in a strange way it is said a little quieter, almost a whisper, and a little slower. If something aggravating happens like you stub your toe or lose your car keys it is said a little deeper and with an irritated tone.  One phrase but so many meanings.

     I have never thought that this could just be my family until now.

It's said when its close cousins, "I hate to hear that" and "Well, don't that beat all" just don't pack enough punch.

The world is crazy, people can be crazy, and by Saturday I have usually had at least one "Ain't that some shit" moment.

I am a homebody and don't go out a whole lot. I have had some health issues and I just get aggravated with people. Most of the time if I am in a crowd I have an "Ain't that some shit" moment along with a "This is why I stay home moment."

This week's moment is brought to you by myself, in my car. I am in the south.  It is almost August.  It is fry an egg on your forehead hot here. I am 46 and haven't been able to handle the heat for some time. I had a partial hysterectomy in 2012 and it was completed last month.  So......I am hormonal.  Or not, I get confused what has happened does everything just bottom out or one hormone take over???? They have taken everything and left me with Bitchy, Itchy, Sweaty, and Jumpy.

     I get in my car today and I don't know how but my butt warmer has been turned on.  I don't know where to turn it off.  I have never had to use it since I got the car 2 years ago and because of health haven't driven it a whole lot.  Even in the dead of winter, I might not even have the heat on much less the butt toaster.

     I am just trying to get where I am going, which isn't far so I just turn the air conditioning on a little more and deal with it.

     It's embarrassing because I have to walk in the store sweating like I walked there.  If I exercised it could look like I have been at the gym, but my hair is flat and I just look sweaty and don't have on the right shoes.  I go down an aisle and turn to go into the next and see old friends I haven't seen in a while. They see me before I can turn around and go the other way.

Ain't that some shit.

Please tell me you have moments like these. Really, please comment and go  into detail so I feel better!
