Have you heard of WaNeLo?
It’s an Internet site where you post and share links to material goods that you Want – Need or Love.
The want - need – love thing??
WAnt NEed LIke ~ Wanelo.
There. I spelled it out because some people’s have sluggish brains.
(Insert extremely sarcastic voice here)
Because, that’s exactly what this generation of spoiled rotten entitled children needs.
More fuel for the WANT furnace.
A means to email or bookmark every. single. one. of their worldly desires in the stroke of a key.
To ponder and wallow over what they DON’T have.
Who’s dumb ass idea was this anyway?
My daughters list is up to like eleventy-katrillion or some ridiculous numeral that’s more than $10.
Fuck off Wanelo.
My motivation for this post was the obvious fact that my daughter is a Wanelo junkie.
I’ve had it up to HERE, so what do I do?
I hop on over to Wanelo to do a little research and open up my own profile.
The plan was to playfully bookmark a few mom extravagances, so I can show her my wish list every time she makes me look at hers.
Misery loves company.
Only, something happened.
I didn’t entirely hate Wanelo like I was supposed to.
Shit. shit. shit.
In fact, it’s rather addicting.
Here’s some kick ass stuff from my Wanelo folder called Essential Survival Stuff-
Hamster ball for kids or me.
Fortune cookie lounging chair—LOVE!
Mermaid tail to splash around playfully and/or do laps in the pool or bathtub
Empire State Building Scratching Post for TGC!!!
Sippy Cup for Serious Wine Drinkers
The Worlds Most Accurate Clock.
Instagram TP Dispenser
Toilet decals bearing very important messages.
Clapper for Diva #14′s Drama Auditions
In conclusion, my experiment totally back-fired and now I’m left with yet another playground on the interwebs to burn my precious time…
And, of course, pretend I’m a 12 year old trapped in an adults body.
Which in reality tends to be fabulously therapeutic and relaxing.
