There couldn’t be two words more liberating to me than so what. I’ve been using so what for years now.
It has given me security. I don’t second guess as much. I compare less. I can let my three year old do errands with me all around town wearing a Hot Wheels helmet and be the envy of little boys everywhere. I can look like death warmed over. I can attempt funny and have it fall flat. I can care what I care about…no judgment.
(I can’t use so what everywhere for obvious reasons. You can’t throw that out there when you need to pay bills or when your kids need to eat or when something awful happens. One must apply wisdom when using so what.)
So what took me a long time to learn.
And then Pink came up with an anthem to so what…I felt ten times more liberated singing along…So what…I’m still a rock star…I’ve got my rock moves….
I’m not a rock star with rock moves but I get the so what of it all.
In the Golden Globes
Well…parts of the golden globes anyway. My girl, Tina Fey, won. She had the best acceptance speech. Ever. Alec Baldwin won for best actor in a comedy series and then all of 30 Rock won. Kate Winslet won for best supporting actress and best actress in a motion picture – I adore her. And Ricky Gervais…he wasn’t nominated and he didn’t win anything, but that man is so funny! Could he host an awards show please?
