Marry a Jackie ...

As the saying goes ... date a Marilyn, but marry a Jackie. Not you silly, the boy politicians. Both are beautiful icons, but my style will always be more Jackiesque. Anyhoo, a friend I respect very much recently paid me a "compliment." It went a little something like this ... "L.C., you would make a great politician's wife." WIFE. Wife!? Why not a great politician? Oh, fuel the fire. I am in law school, not finishing school (the difference: I will have way more wrinkles). And, since Ale doesn't want to be a politician ... I, well, neither do I. Hehe. Just unruffling my feathers and mentally blocking out the word wife from the "compliment." Xoxo-BLC

  1. Oh I hate that so much... When doing my internship with an Obstetric surgeon, people would say things like "You'll make a great nurse someday" Not that there is anything wrong with Nursing, Nurses are a vital part of the health care system in our nation. But I was not interning with the nurse, I was interning with the Surgeon, it seemed very sexist to assume because I was a female in scrubs I wanted to become a nurse.

  2. UGH - one of my best guy friends thinks I would make a good first lady.
    I went to law school to be the GOVERNOR.
    I understand he meant it as a compliment, but... seriously?

  5. Ugh! Well, think of it this way: at least they see you doing deeds, managing and decorating an estate and looking good in photos! I would sure love for anyone to think I might be capable of that!
