Gracie’s been spending a lot of time watching old cartoons during her recovery from surgery this week. We’ve watched The Jetsons, Rocky and Bullwinkle, and The Flintstones.
Now, I watched these shows when I was a kid, and saw these in a totally different way. When I was a kid, I noticed that Wilma was a lot cuter than Fred. I always wondered what she saw in him.
Now that I’m an adult, and a married one at that, I see how Fred behaves and I don’t know how Wilma puts up with him.
He gambles, and lies about it.
He ignores her while he’s watching TV (the game, the fights, etc)
He has a terrible temper.
He lies to his wife about taking another woman out for his boss.
And one time, he was so busy gambling he took his baby Pebbles, and took the wrong baby home with him.
I’m telling you, my husband isn’t a saint, but Fred Flinstone is kind of a jerk. Wilma deserves some kind of an award for putting up with that guy.
