Baggage Claim

17 Feb

Thanks to Facebook, my blood pressure went up yesterday morning. It occurred when someone commented on a status update about The Bachelor. The status update said: Blank thinks Tenley will be the last one standing! The comment that got me all fired up was: “I just can’t believe the Bachelor, hot as he is, would take a divorced woman and all her baggage. She’s obviously still messed up over it.”

To borrow a line from Shane Mason of Gowns and Crownsshut the front door.

Let’s talk about baggage for a moment, shall we? It comes in all shapes, sizes, colors and materials. Some baggage is so small that we can easily take it with us on our journeys. Some is so large and heavy that we have to ask friends or family to take a few items for us.

The way I see it, everyone has baggage. Some of us have Louis Vuitton, and some of us have Kmart, but at the end of the day…it’s all baggage.

Side note: If I’m expected to go out with an ugly guy who is a loser because I’m a divorced woman (with baggage), then I am certainly defying the odds. Miracle worker in the flesh, y’all, because (and I don’t usually brag, but) my man is a looker – with everything in the world going for him.
