A few days ago, I wrote about a book I'd found at a garage sale, BECOMING A LADY. It continues to intrigue me (and repulse me more than a bit.) Because I like to share both intriguing and repulsive things with my dear friends, I thought I'd give you a few more tips on how to become a lady:
A lady never wears white after Labor Day. (These ladies sure seem hung up on what they wear when, don't they?)
A lady never raises her voice. (Really? How else am I to be heard when The Wretch has a football game blaring on television?)
A lady never crosses her legs. (I'm guessing she never crosses her eyes either.)
A lady is always proper in her demeanor and dress. (Does wearing The Wretch's t-shirt, which hangs around my knees, count as proper dress?)
I'm beginning to think that a lady is a prissy prig, not to mention boring as hell.
Gem for the day: a lady knows what's important ... and what isn't.
