You know when you have a group of something and its referred to by a different name. A group of birds is a flock, unless it's geese then it can also be a gaggle or crows are a murder. You have schools of fish, herds of cattle, pods of whales. What is the name for a group of whiny, overweight, female sad sacks??
Every Monday I will be participating in a Dialectical Behavioural Therapy group (DBT) for managing my illness. For a brief explanation of DBT click HERE. There are 12 of us in total. Eight of us are overweight or obese, the other four are too skinny. There are two coordinators that lead the group, both male. If I could describe them as colours, the one would be beige and the other would be beige that was left out in the desert sun to bake and fade away. He is less exciting than that teacher in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
Anyway I'm very bored with the group already and my mind wanders so I've started to nickname/apply archetypes to the women in the group. I haven't named all of us yet. This is what I have so far:
* Self-Pity Angry Lesbian
* Woman-Child Know It All
* Drugged Out Porn Blond
* Sad Mom
* Emo Girl
* Butch Tammy Faye
* Quiet Girl
* Loud Mouth (BTW that's me...)
These people drive me nuts. I have 18 more weeks to go.
I will say YES to tolerance. I will say YES to tolerance.
