Facts of Life

In my twenty nine years, I have been treated to a few inescapable facts of life. These include:

1. Boys have cooties.
2. The older a woman gets, the more she likes pot pourri.
3. Never believe your teenage boyfriend when he says, "I'll look after you and the baby."
4. Married women are always the ones who load the washing machine, hang up the washing to dry, sort it out, put it in drawers - and yet your fella will always complain he hasn't enough socks because he never puts them in the laundry basket.

And finally--

5. There are actually some sensible people in the dialogue section of Shooting People:

Unfortunately I agree with Lucy wholeheartedly, and I often find myself thinking twice about initiating or contributing to a discussion because responses can often be pretty vicious.

Thanks Dave Herman! : )

But it seems some people still want to prove my original point:

Lucy, it is an exceptionally patronising view that all posters don't have a life so have time to compose these posts. I have a busy life. I also have decades of experience in education so if I am taking the time out to share what I think will be helpful and then not only do you, but the moderator, take patronising swipes at sincere posters, well then, your friends are right, this list does give people a hard time.

Love the idea I am actually the FLAMER here when this poster takes my generalised (albeit facetious) comment and then makes the kind of assertion I complained about in the first place! Lol.

Think I'll stick to the blogs. Starting with Dave Herman's today...

I have no idea what "cooties" are.
I thought it was something that American kids get.

Todays WV is "calizin" It was the girl that Aladdin lost his virginity to.

I load the washing machine, and I still lose my socks. It's one of life's greatest mysteries

Stop LYING Jez! No man is hardy enough to cope with washing. Or ironing. You FOOL. (I'm flaming you by the way).

I think you'll find that cooties are nonexistent in the UK.

While it is a well-known fact that girls of all nations carry the lurgy.

Lucy V said...

VICIOUS LIES! Spread by cootie-ridden men, no less. We girlies are as pure as the driven snow.

Ask any girl. They won't kiss boys cos of cooties. Fact. And don't forget Man Flu too!

Off to play hopscotch now so there.
