Because, I feel like us ladies get a bad rap.
Everyone thinks we are the drama causers of the universe, yes?
After years of studying my husband very carefully (and by studying, I mean judgmentally keeping track of his each and every move), I have come to the conclusion that men are DRAMA CITY.
DRAAAMA ALLLLLL THE TIIIIIIIIMMMME.
For instance, I sometimes always accidentally on purpose listen to my husband’s phone calls. Which, first off, why do men have to call with real voices? My women friends and I text all the time.
No emotion, just typed words. Done.
Anyways — men CALL and it’s always something. Seriously. Because men don’t call unless it IS something, so if a man’s phone rings and it’s another man on the other end…DRAMA.
Secondly, men’s television shows. HAVE YOU SEEN MEN’S TELEVISION LATELY!?!?
All my husband watches is reality tv — Ax Men, Swamp People, Deadliest Catch…and all the men do is argue and fight and have problems. I mean, I watch mostly fake life like Grey’s Anatomy or Mad Men or Scandal…those are drama, but at least it’s SCRIPTED drama, which doesn’t count.
Scripted drama wins awards at shows where people dress fancy, which means it’s classier anyways.
And let’s talk about spit up and poop. Have you ever seen a man who has been spit up or pooped on by a baby?
It’s an EVENT.
Everything in the room is suddenly about THEM and whatever it is dripping down their arm. There is usually running and shouting involved, the baby is sitting somewhere screaming from fright…
Honestly, the last time I got spit up on, I think half the day was over before I even noticed. I’m not saying this to brag, except I kinda am.
I’m just drama free like that I guess.
So, in honor of Mother’s Day, I say we band together and expose the truth behind drama starters.
It’s you, MEN. IT’S YOU.
(also, we don’t need to talk about it for an hour when you do the dishes or clean something. DRAMATIC, MUCH??)
And because I’m sure there is a dramatic someone in your life who loves you very much, I came up with a yummy and SUPER simple breakfast idea.
I’m thinking…Mother’s Day?
To prepare, just spread Nutella over the crescent roll dough, roll like normal, then brush with melted butter and give a good sprinkling of cinnamon sugar before baking until golden brown.
Easy peasy and so majorly yummy!!
- 1 (8 oz) can crescent roll dough
- 1/2 cup Nutella spread
- 2 TBS butter, melted
- 3 TBS granulated sugar & 1/4 tsp cinnamon, combined
- Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- Lay crescent dough triangles flat and spread with Nutella. Loosely roll and place on baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Using a pastry brush, brush with melted butter and sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar.
- Bake for about 10 minutes, or until dark golden brown.
In case I STILL don’t have you convinced as to who the real drama queens are, I’d like to close with THIS.
Adventure pants, anyone?
Because yes, deciding that you need to remove half of your pants in the middle of an outing isn’t dramatic at all.
Good thing men have us perfectly sane and logical women around to keep things real, is all I’m saying.
Enjoy and have a very happy Thursday!!
