So, how was your Tuesday? Were you spoilt by your partner or by your boss? No? Well, you should have been living in Russia then, because it is really big there. They even get the day off! Because yesterday was International Women's Day! A day to celebrate your womanness, your being a female member of society, your tits and ass (if I may be so blunt).
But for all our importance, IWD seemed to be swept under the carpet a bit (unless you were in Russia of course). Which is a shame, since we are so very important (do you see how I am not one to brag?)!
When I started working as a busdriver one of the questions I heard quite often was: 'Do you have your driver's licence?' Invariably, the people asking me this question were men. Older men at that. My reply would always be something along the lines of: 'Do you need one to drive a bus?' On the other hand women (especially older ones) thought it was fantastic that I was driving a bus. If I had a euro for every time I heard a woman say: 'Isn't it great women can do anything nowadays?', I would have been able to move a long time ago. And take all my rubber duckies along as well!!!
So let's celebrate. Let's celebrate our womandom, even if it is a day late. Have that piece of chocolate cake, that dress. Spoil yourself and your daughters! And don't ever forget how important you are!!!
