Regarding: Crayons

Crayon Tips I don’t know why it bothers me.  Or if anyone will even agree.  But have you noticed anything strange about Dodge Calibers?  Not just the car, which got BEAT with the ugly stick.  But the drivers as well?  They seem to be some of the worst on the road.  Is it the car?  Or the type of person that is attracted to, and buys, that car?  I can’t explain it.

And why are the Calibers always the strangest colors?   The colors in a crayon box that you would never use as a kid.  The crayons that still have an unused, sharp tip while the rest are stumpy nubs.  Like Burnt Sienna.  And Apricot.  And Maize.

It’s like how the warehouse stores always throw a reject flavor in with a good flavor of something.  Like the strawberry pop tarts in with the brown sugar cinnamon.  Or the lemonade crystal light in with the ice tea. Or the Italian Wedding soup with the Chicken Noodle.

And if anyone like the Caliber (or any of the food I listed as “reject”) you can feel free to retaliate by making fun of my car.  I drive a VW Golf TDI.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.

  1. That really is ugly. The only American cars I really like right now are the Chevy Camaro and the Dodge Challenger….muscle cars. It’s the car romantic in me.
