(This post was inspired by my spending way too much time with married friends lately. As I sat there in these dark, little basements, trying not to stare at bellies which have swollen tremendously since I last saw these very same girls, I came to the conclusion that single-hood has got to have it's perks. It wasn't too hard to find my top five reasons. What are yours?)
1-I can complain about nausea or mention that I am craving ice cream and pickles without people examining my stomach to see if I am pregnant.
2-I can complain to my married friends about my bad hair day, and listen with glee as they respond in a wistful voice (disguised as a boastful voice) that they don't have that issue anymore.
3-I can do really stupid things like staying up until 5am texting someone and have only my tired self to answer to (ok, maybe an irate boss too).
4-I can decide that ice cream is a perfectly good supper one night=no pressure to make fancy things like butternut squash soup and creamed spinach casserole.
5-I don't have to wash anyone else's dirty laundry. And if I ask my mother sweetly enough, I don't even have to wash my own dirty laundry.
