Fantastic Friday

Fall is for Thanksgiving

While we should be thankful every day, fall is a time of concentrated reflection, where we can look back at the year and count our many blessings. And though our memories will also stumble on some of the non-blessings that have occurred, I hope that those are few and overshadowed by the overwhelming happy moments that have touched your life.

Today I’m thankful for laughter. Couldn’t we all use a little Fantastic Friday laugh to start the weekend?  Here goes:

I recently picked up a copy of 511 Things Only Women Understand by Lorraine Bodger. Some of my favorites are listed below. I hope you enjoy.

Only Women Understand:

  • Amortization: If you wear that three-hundred-dollar suede jacket thirty times, it costs only ten dollars per wearing.
  • That running out of coffee, panty hose, mascara, and gas on the same morning is enough to send you back to bed for the rest of the day.
  • Why it’s unhelpful for your boyfriend or husband to point out that you’ve gone off your diet when you have.
  • Why a woman cannot have too many pairs of black slacks.
  • How to look as if you’re listening attentively while you’re actually planning your grocery list in your head.
  • That finding a pair of perfectly fitting jeans approaches having a religious experience.
  • The alarming difference between 120 pounds and 121 pounds.
  • The tone of your girlfriend’s telephone voice when she means: He’s in the room, so I can’t talk about that right now.
  • Why it makes perfect sense to wear toe-crushing, arch-defying, exquisitely beautiful pumps.
  • The difference between pants, regular pants, nice pants, good pants, and dressy pants.
  • Why it’s essential to pack your makeup case in your carry-on bag , not in your luggage.
  • That it’s impossible to own too much good jewelry. Or even too much bad jewelry.
  • How to ask for directions.

Have a wonderful weekend. Be thankful. Laugh and smile every moment that you possible can.

  1. The hunt for the perfect pair of jeans can be shared with your husband if you show him crappy jeans and THE JEANS. My husband now clearly understands the perfect fit must make my butt look good and my thighs look tiny.
