So Just Marry Rich

BooHooThis week Cordelia’s Mom a/k/a CookieCakes is whining (oh, boo-hoo-hoo) about how run-down the village she grew up in looks now (“Fifty Years Later”).

I have news for her – that village always was a decrepit blight in that corner of New York State.  I know because I grew up outside the village, in a very nice home in one of the newer developments.

But my parents had money, while CookieCakes’ dad was a roofing contractor (heaven forbid), and her mother was a stay-at-homer.

Apparently, CookieCakes’ parents thought it was all right for a mother to just sit at home catering to all her little princes and princesses.  What a drag that must have been.  Can you imagine your mom being able to watch your every move, every single day?  My mother didn’t work, either (in the 1950s and 1960s,  most moms didn’t work), but at least my mother had the good sense to go out for most of every day, leaving us kids to do whatever we wanted whenever we wanted.  That was awesome.  Someday I will tell you some of my growing-up stories!

Anyway, I always felt a little sorry for CookieCakes.  While my friends and I were running around having fun, CookieCakes was at home either studying or helping her mom.  I hear they even liked to bake together (gag me with a spoon).

ponyOne time, I asked CookieCakes if she wanted to go horseback riding with me and my friends, and do you know – she not only had to ask her mother, but then her mother said there was no money for horseback riding.  No money?  I never, ever had anyone say that to me!

And I heard that sometimes CookieCakes had to wear hand-me-downs from relatives.  How sad is that?

Maybe I should send some money to CookieCakes now so she’ll stop whining – not!  I’m enjoying my life as a wealthy retiree – let CookieCakes suffer the consequences of being too stupid to be born rich or to marry rich.

    Hmm, you seem to have some deep issues there. CM actually directed us over to view your website, so I guess you don’t scare her much. It’s pretty apparent that having money has not made you happy – you’re dredging up old issues that happened decades ago. You know, I’ve been through cancer, kidney failure, harrowing life experiences and from my point of view you debase yourself with your petty jealousies. Time for some real challenges in your life – go out and do something useful, because this certainly isn’t. I’m sure you’ll respond to this comment with hatred or by editing it. I’m going to copy it over to CM’s blog so we can see how you change it. The person you really hurt when you hate is yourself, so let it go and you’ll be much happier. Have a nice day! 😀


  3. The envy in your post is incredibly glaring. I’m sorry for you 😦


  4. Let me just jump in here if I may at this point. Both Not CM and CM (the evil twins) find everyone’s support of CM heartwarming. I wanted to keep the secret longer, but as you all know the responses this post generated forced me to fess up and to add the disclaimer. Plus (damn WordPress!), I couldn’t figure out how to use a different gravatar for Not CM (and believe me, I really tried), so it’s pretty obvious anyway if you look at both mirror blogs. Hope now that you know, everyone is enjoying the fun. From this point on, I’ll assume any comments to Not CM are made in the spirit of the mirror blogs.

    Now you’ve done it. My head hurts, and I’m dizzy! (whaddaya mean, I came in that way??!)


    • The whole thing made me dizzy, too. And I still can’t figure out how to make the right gravatar and name show up on the right blog! So I guess I’ll just have to be both people on both blogs. Thanks for reading and commenting.

    • Thanks. People seem to be enjoying it now that they know it’s a spoof. And it’s fun for me to be able to write with a second personality (although sometimes it give me a headache, if truth be known).

    Oh my god, I am gonna piss my housecoat, this is too funny. I just found you and the blatantly ridiculous cookie cakes and I love that you wear so many hats. Keep doing it, those goofballs have got to learn to see the color between the black and white. Woot!
