Wouldn't It Be Nice...

Wouldn't it be nice to be supported by a man and be a woman of leisure and write all day? To be financially supported and do nothing or anything from sunrise to sunset?

And to think, there are women out there who have this opportunity; a chance to enrich their own lives, but take advantage of the situation and sit on their asses all day doing nothing but piss away money. Interestingly, the men don't like the situation but do nothing to change it.

Is this something I want? Nope. I'd get too bored. Plus, the moral fabric of my ethics wouldn't allow me to take advantage of myself or anyone like that.

I want to be a house mommy and write poetry all day. ahhhhhh. yes, some people have no idea how lucky they are to be "taken care of" yet others are "taken care of" and are literally slaves to their family....I am teaching that third world women writers class at USF. It is making me think too much.

Amen to that sister. It seems like it would be a great idea, but I wouldn't want to actually stop being productive. It would be nice to have a man around right now, though - but he would be there to fulfill other needs. ;-)
