It is one of the mysteries of blogging that one can write a well thought-out, carefully worded post on a serious subject that may have serious repercussions and get 0 – 5 comments, while sometimes one writes a post on girl stuff and get dozens, maybe even hundreds of comments.
Almost two years ago I asked Should tall women wear platform shoes?, which generated twelve comments and at least a couple of dozen emails.
(Yes, I bought those shoes and still wear them. They do make your legs look very nice.)
Now the hot topic is should women carry handbags?.
Another cosmic question, Why don’t women clothes carry pockets? Women clothes don’t carry pockets because pockets are place on strategic parts of the body and if a woman carries anything in her pockets
a. it makes her chest look lumpy and asymmetrical
b. it makes her hips or derriere look big, lumpy and asymmetrical.
It’s not a feminist issue, it’s a wanting-to-look-shapely issue.
Moving on the other cosmic questions, this morning’s podcast started as an April Fool’s fun podcast but we ended up talking about parenting. You must listen to it, here, and if you enjoy it, please rate it. Siggy read from a wonderful post he wrote about his daughter’s birth.
I’ll link to it later. You can read it here.
Siggy, Little Miss Attila and Mamacita of Scheiss Weekly were wonderful and we’re going to continue the conversation on the same subject next Tuesday.
Siggy, always a deep thinker, posted today another cosmic question, Why Did The Pullet Cross The Road?. Little Miss Attila asks Is the city of L.A. suffering from ADD?, while Mamacita wonders why is it next-to-impossible to find Concord grapes in a supermarket or even a farmer’s market in her area
And I thank them all for today’s podcast.
