Listening: The Things People Say

I'm glad I didn't listen when they said...

~If you leave him, I think you're going to ruin your life.
~You? Run a half-marathon? That's hilarious.

~All men are like that.
~You're getting a tattoo? Are you crazy?
~You really need to start doing Facebook.
~Pink hair is for rock stars.
~When it comes to real estate, you'll never lose money.
~You know, I'm really not the romantic type.

I wish I hadn't listened when they said...
~I think this new guy...he's the one you should marry.
~Too bad you don't look like your sister.
~You shouldn't be a writer. That's never going to work.

~Will you marry me? (the first time)
~Don't get the VW Cabrio; it's not a responsible choice.

~Aren't you a little too old to go dancing all night?

I'm glad I listened when they said...

~You should really start watching that new HBO show about 4 girls in NY.
~I'm telling you, a Brazilian wax will change your life.
~Let's get an RV.
~You need to get some therapy.
~Hey, you wanna apply for one of those home make-over shows?
~You really need to get a smart phone of some type...
~If you like tequila, you should try Patron.

~Don't wash your hair so often.

This was the last topic for Momalom's Five for Five series. I can't believe that after barely blogging once a week, I managed to get out five consecutive days AND read other blogs and comment. Thanks, Jen and Sarah, for doing this again, for giving me a little kick in the ass, and reminding me what it feels like when this place is more towards the top of my To-Do List.


  1. Amen to that last list! And yes, thanks to Jen and Sarah for kicking us in the ass! I know I certainly needed it!
