Meet Minnie

This is Minnie. She may look tough but actually she is quite insecure. That is probably why she is such a grumpy old thing. I met Minnie years ago on the internet, where she came from before that I do not know. She seemed to be hiding out, homeless and ignored. Whenever I found myself cruising around in the image ghetto looking for a fix, I would run into her. Finally she just followed me home and has been living in my photos ever since.
Every now and then Minnie likes to come out just to be nasty. She likes to play with my own insecurities by telling me that I am not good enough, that I do everything wrong, that no one likes me. She tells me that I am selfish and that I should not spend so much time at my computer or on my hobbies. She tells me that I should study more, clean more, pay more attention to my family, and make more money. She also likes to point out all my bad habits and she teases me constantly. “Eat better, you are gaining weight, do you really need that chocolate now? “She spits out words like venom and tells me, “You look like an old hippie, get your hair cut and colored, put on some make-up and wear something other than jogging pants!” 

I really hate Minnie and have tried to get rid of her many times. Just when I think she is gone, she turns up once again pointing her finger and yelling, “Do you want to end up like me, old and grumpy, and stuck with your fingers in someone else’s laptop?” I never seem to know when she will appear. Let me tell you, I could really use a vacation from Minnie. If you could just take her off my hands for a while that would be great. Just copy and paste her into your photos. Minnie likes to travel. Oh, I forgot to mention that Minnie has some unusual friends. Einar, Frida and Bert call themselves Minnies groupies and they are as irritating as flies. Just ignore them when they start buzzing around inside your head, telling you that everything Minnie says is true.

I had a very good friend who use to live in Norway, but I don't think she knew Minnie. Minnie's sister lives with me. There is no way I could handle the both of them.

Siv Maria said...

Siv Maria said...

Just as I suspected, noone is willing to take Minnie off my hands. Just beware, she has a habit of turning up anyways...LOL!

As much as I'd like to help you, Siv....can't do it. I have a minnie of my own, and she's a rightous bitch on wheels. Like an old weed, I keep squashing her down, but she comes back to taunt me. I'm thinking about feeding her to my dogs, but they have better taste than that. What to do? More later, Keri

Next time, tell her that she could use a better bra, shave her legs and stuff that cigarette up her butt.

Conscience is such a b*tch. Don't let it get you down! Illegitimi Non Carborundum!

I swear I ran into Minnie at the store today and she was so rude to me. I'm sorry, but I don't want her.

So nice to meet you! Look forward to reading more.
