Twice In One Week

Twice in One Week

I don’t know what you are thinking but whatever you are, you are wrong.  It is this;

I love Homeland and Carrie Mathison, who I swear is also peri-menopausal as well as bi-polar. It is a wonderful series. I was however, horrified earlier this week when my husband told me,  “you are just like Carrie Mathison”.   Actually he might have been a tiny bit shouty at the time.  That stopped me in my tracks.

Worse, when I told my friend, my partner in tablet heaven friend, she did NOT reply as I expected.  She did NOT immediately leap up and say, “no of course you are not like her, one tiny bit.  He is COMPLETELY wrong.”

She said instead, quite calmly, for a perimenopausal woman, “I always thought of you more like Phoebe in friends”.  Now I always thought Phoebe was frankly rather irksome and my least favourite character.  “What,” I spluttered all over her living room.  I love her living room by the way, very elegant and always tidy, despite having 3 children.

Back to hubs.  I told him I was less than impressed with his comment and could he please expain himself calmly.  He pointed out, “she does seem to be on a bit of a knife edge sometimes, quite a lot of the time actually, and have a mad look in her eye, but I shouldn’t worry as you don’t have that look all the time.”

I was just having a ‘psycho” day like it says on my pyjamas.
