alisonism #5: Man, I feel like a .... not quite a woman, more just a girl.

I have always hated using the word "woman."  My whole life.  I was thinking about it the other day because I was teasing my sister about eating beans and she said, "Mooom, I'm 26 years old.  I'm almost a full grown woman!"  I felt like, if that were a movie quote, I would never say it because I would feel weird every time.  So, after that, I acknowledged the fact that, really, I just don't like referring to myself as a woman.  In fact, I almost just barfed typing that sentence.  But referring to people who are actually women would be fine, right?  Wrong.  When I refer to old women, I usually call them "old ladies" to avoid using the W word.  I don't, by the way, have an aversion to "women." Just "woman."

With the exception of talking about Wonder Woman.

P.S. Why is my text so tiny? I tried for like, five minutes trying to get it to publish in "normal" size, but it just kept coming out this tiny size.
