I was explaining to my honest friend how I thought Audrey Hepburn was such a classy lady, and oh how I admired her look, especially her short bangs – it was such a bold look. And then I explained how Katy Perry has those same type of short bangs (well, sometimes). My friend kindly said, “yeah,….. but Sarah…..that haircut’s not for … ya know, everyone.”
When I showed my friend that I was wearing my manly oxford shoes today, knowing full well she hates them, I apologized for their filth explaining they needed a good shine. She said, “you actually wear them that often that they need a shining?”
When I rhetorically ask the kids if I used to be this stupid (as stupid as I am now), they say, “YES”. (It’s a loving type of “yes”.)
When I ask Goose if my dress makes me look fat, she simply says, “yes, Cruella”.
When I warned a friend of my latest caper in THWIV office, explaining that when he saw the capered picture of me it would have a few extra pounds on it compared to when he saw me last. He texted me the next day saying, “Nice picture, Porkie!”
Another friend, tired of hearing me blather about my weight gain said, “nice to hear you’re bulking up for the winter.”
But these are my friends, and these things make me laugh. They know they make me laugh with these type of comments. They’re snarky. I love the snark. It’s all good, it’s how we float. But be very careful where you tread…..
Little Miss Sunshine who wants to look like Ms. Hepburn.
