Personal anecdote by TH!!!

The Thoughtless Housewife is generally not an anecdote-telling kind of gal, so I am not sure what to make of her September 30 post entitled, "A Car Swerved Off the Road."

The most interesting fact we learn is that, in her 20s, Housewife worked as a newspaper reporter in Camden, NJ!

Anyway, the anecdote itself is weird. She talks about how she was driving on a winter's night on a 4-lane highway near Camden. She then goes on to emphasize that Camden was/is one of the most dangerous cities in America. A car swerves off the road in front of her. She immediately pulls over to see if the driver of the vehicle was hurt. The driver was a roughly 30-year-old black man, who was angry at first because he thought she had hit him. The highway was deserted, but her only concern was whether the black man was okay. It turned out that he had skidded on some black ice. She then helped him up even though, as she points out, she is a small woman and he is a large man. He thanked her.

So I'd love your thoughts. What the hell? This just seems so random and apropos of nothing. I think she is trying to prove what a good and courageous person she is, that she didn't even hesitate to stop and help despite the potential danger to herself. The whole thing is just very odd. I looove to tell anecdotes, but this would never count to me as a particularly interesting anecdote unless it related to something under discussion.

I try not to read the TH, but my conspiratorial sort of thought is that Lawrence Auster reads here and decided, per our remarks on the other threads, to increase the personal anecdotes in hopes of making "Laura" appear more feminine and differentiated from him. Still a weird choice of stories, though.

      Planning on scheduling my ankle surgery around Trump's Georgia trial - if I'm forced to be off my feet, I might as well be entertained.

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
