My salad dressing days

What life has taught me (Part One)

1. That when you find a pair of jeans that make your bum look small, thighs look thin and your muffin top non-existent, embrace them as you would a long lost relative. And buy five pairs. (Maybe six.)
2. That there is more to life than the perfect pair of jeans. (Bitter? Me?)
3. That a pussy bow can detract attention from most unsightly body parts.
4. If you’re Kate Moss (and have no unsightly body parts).
5. That you should never choose your life partner when you are mid cycle. You will only pick a George Clooney and this will only lead to subsequent misery and strife. No, you should pick your life partner when you are in the midst of a case of raging PMT. If they love you for your hormonal acne and short wick, this is a good sign of an ability to commit to a long term relationship. (Worked for me.)
6. That if you only realise a blue-lit ambulance is trying to pull past you because it is filling the whole of your rearview mirror, then you are playing your Belle and Sebastian CD too loud.
7. That no-one is going to be impressed if you try to brag about playing music in the car so loud that you cannot hear the nee-naw of an emergency services vehicle.
8. That a surprising percentage of people expect a thirty-something mother-of-two to behave more responsibly than she occasionally does.
9. That there are some sick, sick people out there. Specifically the group of students spotted using their mobile phone to photograph a dead squirrel in the gutter outside the Royal Botanic Gardens last Saturday afternoon.
10. That it’s a sad state of affairs when your sidebar is longer than the main body of your blog.

As a lurker, this was a great first post to read – well and truly cracked me up. Cheers!

re #10, you’ll just have to post more often. Re #1 oh how I wish this had EVER happened to me. I don’t have a body made for jeans (child bearing hips (hahaha) and fat thighs).

1. Doesn’t ever happen. Anyway, when are stupid, stupid, stupid low rise jeans ever going to go out of fashion as well?

10. Hmm, know what you mean … mind you, I have been “shaving” bits off my sidebar and hoping that some people haven’t noticed.

Theyre some good teachings.
Life has not taught me much. Not yet.

Betty: This season! It’s apparently all about the high waists, now.

UC: Re #1. Where? Where did you find these?

“the nee-naw of an emergency services vehicle” — this phrase alone made my day.

I was impressed. I’m listening to Belle and Sebastian right now!

I wish I could still apply some of these lessons, but I’m too old. LOL!

Great first post to read. Hilarious 🙂 I’m at that life stage now: I married #5 a few months ago!
