You can play this at Heads Or Tails!
The theme/prompt for THIS week, June 30, is:
HEADS - "Tool"
Make any kind of post using "Tool" as your theme/prompt.
When you go to counseling one of the first things you are taught to use are your TOOLS. Identify your support people. Make a game plan for what to do when you feel stressed. Etc. etc. etc. (That means I've forgotten some.)
Another helpful TOOL is to quit being so hard on yourself. OK. This one I have trouble with. A Lot.
Me and Mr. Skittles went off on a little road trip a few days ago. You can read WHY we did in the post below this one, but while you're here I'll keep going with what I wanted to say. We were following Michigan's west coast shoreline and doing so meant we went through some areas with beaches and people swimming. As we passed through one nice community I said to Mr. Skittles, "Nothing here for us fat people to do." Because it was a swimming, tanning, frolicking in the water community.
Well, that comment made me start thinking. Why couldn't I go there and swim and tan and frolic in the water??? Because I'm fat? Because I would offend people if I showed up in shorts or God forbid a swimsuit??? Yeah. Pretty much. But wouldn't that be the other people's problem then? Because THEY would be offended by ME? If I'm offensive though then maybe I shouldn't do those things.
I think I think too much. But I won't be going swimming.
I hoped I could have found the real spoof made of this song. I couldn't though so this karaoke version will have to do.
