making my way to revolutionary road

I have a lot of amazing women in my life. And I'm convinced that you do too.

They've given birth, some of them even multiple times, and this alone deserves applause in my mind. In addition to that, they're working hard at a career, being fit, youthful and beautiful. They try so hard to be a good wife and more importantly, a good mother. And if their family is lucky, they're master chefs too.

But do you know what I heard this week in research conducted at my office? There is no proof that women today are happier than those miserable housewives of the 1950s. Jesus Christ - all that effort for self improvement, and for what?

Ladies, the more I think about it, the bitches of the 50s got it right. Afternoon cocktails, cigarillos and lounging around watching the tube with a delightful buzz, while Ward is at the office and the Beav is in school.

I say we start a revolution - let's get back to our roots.

  1. we have so much more than those women of the fifties. however, that being said we have to work so much harder to keep what we think we deserve or need. My mother was one of those ladies that you mention. For being over 50 years ago, she was one of the most liberated and independent woman that I have ever had the pleasure to know. She smoked, worked and tanned in excess and yes she was happy with her lot in life.
