A very clever woman (my mother) sent this to me:

Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl, "Will you marry me?"

The girl said, " NO!"

And the girl lived happily ever after and went shopping, dancing, camping, drank whole bottles of wine, always had a clean house, never had to cook, did whatever the hell she wanted, never argued, didn't get fat, travelled more, had many lovers, didn't save money, and had all the hot water to herself. She went to the theatre, never watched sports, never wore fricken lacy lingerie that went up her arse, had high self esteem, never cried or yelled, and felt and looked fabulous all the time.

- And remember, behind every successful woman, is a girlfriend on the other end of the 'phone.

Now, pardon me while I vanish to Venice!

What a great story! I'll get Orable to come to your site and read it and I shall probably send it around as well.

Yes, I changed my weather pixie to this new one because I have dark hair and it used to be long and I like the idea of having several kitties!

Too bad I can't vanish anywhere, just yet, but you watch once I finish this darn PhD.

I agree!! Great story. This is something little girls should be told about about instead of the usual prince stories they are hear.

As you read on my blog, I am still open and waiting for my prince to come, but then again, if he doesn't, that's ok too.

It took me a while, but now I get what I reminded you of...

Leslie, I LOVE this story. I hate when people spew nonsense to my girls about marrying a rich guy to look after them - Grrr!! I'm afraid my responses are not always polite :)
I think I'll print this off and put a copy in my purse, ready to haul out and say "in your face" next time that happens! muahahahaha

-oops; try it again:

Yes, that is very good advice; I was not so fortunate as to have such a wise mother. Still, I have had a good run, and cannot say that I have missed out on everything on the list, nor succumbed to all the vices, either!

Orable did a parody of your story, probably when she was bored with medieval Church Latin, or was it German. I can't resist putting it in my post today.
