Disconnected in Brooklyn on Craigslist: Drink-Tossing Park Slope Mommy
Usually our Sunday Craigslist Brooklyn Missed Connections are just that: the funny, sad or weird tales of ships passing in the long urban night of things that will never be. Today's selection, though, isn't a Missed Connection so much as social commentary about one of our favorite topics, the Park Slope Mommy. Here we go:
Upset mommy in Park SlopeWe told you it was about sociology this week.
To the girl that threw her drink in my face because she didn't like what I had to say about children being in bars; Sometimes it's not about you.
You elected to listen to our conversation. You obviously took offense and I understand why you might think I was talking about you. You were ease dropping on a day-long discussion. If you don't like what you're hearing, tell the person when you hear it, not four hours later by throwing a drink in their face. But then again, since when does anyone agree with everything people say on the street? The reason I kept looking over at your table was because I said F*ck a few times and was worried your kid might hear me. But I couldn't control myself and I shouldn't have to.
Our conversation was about these things: an article I read and how children like to be at home and behave the best when there; how many kids are out for brunch these days when our generation was lucky to get McDonalds once a week; how you never hear parents say 'you're crusin' for a brusin' anymore and how one should be able to talk freely at a bar without offending children and their parents. Maybe if we run into each other in the neighborhood again we can discuss these things. Perhaps we can have drinks in our hands and not in our faces. We'll act like adults. We'll be in a bar where adults mingle. And my mouth can be a filthy as I want.
