  She was pissed. She had quite a bone to pick with society these days. She often wondered why a husband or boyfriend could trade in a really attractive, slightly used model for a newer and younger model. Did it even matter or phase the asshole that the younger model had so many more miles on it than she did. I mean, please, she was five for Christís Sake when you got the damn car. Why is it that ďweĒ the same models with a few added years feel that we have to resort to older men with nice bank accounts, lousy sex lives and hair plugs? Seriously, no more children, hair plugs and impotence? Are you kidding me? And donít even get me started about back hair for cripes sake, who the hell wants to live with that for all eternity? Where are the boys when you need them? Come on. Mrs. Robinson loved Jesus and that worked out ok. Seriously, Jesus loved her more than she would know. I say give me a glass of red wine, a descent novel and an affectionate monkey. Yes, I know the last one is weird but I always wanted a monkey. We could sit on the couch and wallow in our own self pity and sorrow an eat bananas and pretzels while we watch Dr. Phil, OPRAH and Ellen. Of course, in hindsight, one might think that my life resembles the Jerry Springer show but Iím not about to get up and tell the world that Monkey and I are a couple. Yes, of course Iím kidding. My life is so sad that Monkey doesnít even know I exist when the dust bunnies are in the room and if food is present I am a goner. Oh well, at least Monk is happy.

Sounds like a very interesting ranting.
