Because I can’t freaking help myself. I’ve seen ‘The Ten Reasons Why You Should Never Marry A Sorority Girl‘, and the rebuttal “10 Reasons Why You Should Marry A Sorority Woman’.
Both of these were brought to my attention by my second (I think. My dad’s side of the family is huge.) cousin who is in a sorority and posted both of the links on Facebook.
I couldn’t help myself.
I had to read.
One is meant to be inflammatory, I think, and highlights the stereotypes most associated with sorority girls (think television and movies) and makes these women out to be terrible, terrible people that no one in their right mind would want to marry. The other, naturally, rebuffs that by saying how sorority girls actually are taught throughout their collegiate career to be upstanding women and contributing members of society.
I know nothing about sororities. No desire to ever be a part of one. Mostly because I have terrible anxiety problems when it comes to meeting new people.
And I’ve just never been interested. But, what I am interested in, is having a little bit of fun. SO, because I am a writer chick. I’m going to give you the FIVE reasons why we would make awesome wives.
No. I don’t fancy getting married any time soon. I’ve got things to do! Books to write!
Why five when everyone else got ten?
I did mention I have a book to write, right? NaNoWriMo is over tomorrow, my friends. And I am THIS close to being done. I just took a minute to whip up this blog entry.
Here we go!
See kids in your future? Look no further than pairing with a writer. Yes, we like our own space, but we also love to play. Story writers make story tellers and there is nothing better than an awesome bed time story that takes input and spins the tale right in front of you. Monsters under the bed? Psh. not with mum around. Mum has a teddy bear she saves for just the occasion. This teddy bear is equipped with +10 damage, +5 charisma, and the Hammer of Doom. Also the Bag of Holding. No monster stands a chance.
We create new worlds, people, things, vocabularies in our heads. We keep things exciting. It’s what we do. And if you’re very good, we’ll share our ideas with you.
Like to go new places? So do we. We’re always on the lookout for things we can put into our books. New settings, new characters, new inspiration. Writers need socialisation. We don’t just sit on our bums and produce. We like-and need-to go out and try new things. Why not with you?
The book world is changing. We have to change right along with it if we want to be successful. There is no worrying about this, that, or the other. Writer chicks are informed. We make decisions. On our own. We stand strong all by ourselves because not only are we women, we are writers. Translates well into wife-material, don’t you think? Who wants a lady that lets the men make all the decisions. Pfft. There’s a Mary Sue for that, and we hate her. She isn’t our friend.
We have them. Lots and lots of them.
