Old lady, dragon lady and Downton Abbey - Narcissism is Necessary

Old lady, dragon lady and Downton Abbey

Had a senior moment this morning at the office.

Was having a pee. Then decided to use the bidet. Turned it on and….

Water shot straight out of the hose, hit the ceiling and rained back down on me.

FML.

===========

I think I am too blunt for my own good. Over the years I have learnt to be quiet  but now and then I would still blurt out something incredibly offensive in a conversation.

The topic of conversation was Asian cultures and I got a bit carried away.
I shared that I told my husband, that as a chinese woman, I like to be working while knowing I have the choice to quit.

Man, I regretted as soon as I said it. The table was quiet and guess who’s the new Dragon Lady in town?

Anyway, it was a joke!

Ok, maybe half a joke.

=========

We have started Downton Abbey. I delayed watching it for so long because after watching two episodes of The Tudors some time ago, I had developed a disdain for period dramas (Boardwalk Empire excluded).

Anyway, Downton Abbey is crack. I can’t get enough of it. In fact I am typing so fast now because am dying to get back to watching episode 2 of Season 3.

To think that in the beginning, I kept disrupting Gareth mid-watching to ask him why were they pronuncing “Down town” as “Down tern” in the show. Hur hur hur.

    Kimberyly, you! The new dragon lady? Could not see how that could be.

    An interesting post. I suspect that all of humans are, at one time or another caught by a comment that shoots from the lips.

    The offensive part, if any, of your statement must come from the context of conversations regarding Asian cultures. On first read your statement is not offensive in any way. What working women does not have that option of quiting a job when the job becomes a burden or stresses become to much.

    BTW, a post on your opinions of Asian cultures would be an interesting read. Please consider sharing your thoughts on Asian cultures.

    Happy Holiday’s and Merry Christmas!
