Kiss Me, I’m Irish











{October 21, 2008}   A Roseanne Inspired Post

(My Original Blog Post: http://tm2ts.sarahsmidnightfantasy.com/2008/10/21/a-roseanne-inspired-post/)

To whom it concerns, Darlene’s work will be late,
it fell on her pancakes and stuck to her plate…
To whom it concerns, my ma made me write this,
and I’m just her kid, so how could I fight this…
To whom it concerns, I lost my assignment,
maybe I’ll get lucky, solitary confinement…
To whom it concerns, Darlene’s great with the ball,
but guys don’t watch tomboys when they’re cruising the hall…
To whom it concerns, I just turned thirteen,
too short to be quarterback, too plain to be queen…
To whom it concerns, I’m not made of steel,
when I get blindsided my pain is quite real…
I don’t mean to squawk, but it really burns…
I just thought I’d mention it, to whom it concerns…

The poem is from Roseanne, written by Darlene Connor, played by Sara Gilbert. I loved Roseanne when it was on.

The poem reminds me what it was like being a teenager. I was a rough-and-tumble girl. I would be more likely to beat the crap out of a boy than to crush on one 🙂 I think Madi’ll end up similar.

Were you a tomboy or a girly-girl?
And if you’re male, were you a “manly-man” or more likely to be found with a book (since that was “girly” back when I was a kid, :lol:)
