A Good Cause

The scene, Cranky and two- ex-party now married to old money dudes- girlfriends having dinner together.

Cranky talks about missing the good ole days when we all first started working in the city; the Friday night partying, getting dressed in the washroom at 5 pm while all the oldies would smile, fitfully remembering their good ole days.

Friend one: Yeah I miss those too, but these days I am so busy, there’s no time to do anything really. Infact I am thinking of quitting my job.

Friend two: Me too….XX says that I am too over worked, and I have no time to decorate the house…

Cranky: (Choking with jealousy, starting to foam at the mouth) But what would you guys do all day

Friend one and two: Well I’ve always wanted to volunteer, …I would look into that….

Cranky: Supreme depression descends, with the realization that some people are allowed to volunteer during the day…..for fun!

I may get a bit of flack for this, but I'm gonna say it anyway.

Things aren't always what they seem. I recently had a married friend tell me that she loves her husband dearly, but sometimes she feels trapped and she wishes she could have a life more like mine. Imagine that.

I still think that people who are rich enough to stay home all day are for the most part miserable -- unless all the people they know are home too. There is just so much shopping, volunteering and redecorating that one can do before boredom sets in.

SE: As always great points, However, I would have to try it to give you an educated opinion....

LOL

Hey, consider yourself volunteering, except you get paid to do it.

i'm sure they would get bored at some point of just sitting around at home.

I hope they love that "old money" that they married...because I'm not sure staying at home all day or volunteering is worth sleeping every night with someone you don't really care about.

LOL! Yup life is unfair!

Funny. I didn't hear envy in that post. Cheer up Cranky. I bet their husbands are dull in bed.

I agree that the old-money men are probably bad in bad. After all, isn't "old money" rich-person talk for "inbred"?

Old money. That's so Toronto. Do their hubbies have friends? LOL.
