We Are Women.....

Susan Seddon Boulet

Today, March 8 is International Women's Day.

This will not be an informative post as all you have to do is go to Google and read everything you ever wanted to know about this day. I could not let the day go by without mentioning it however.


I will mention that International Women's Day was started on March 8, 1911 and continues to be celebrated to this day

Lucy Maud Montgomery

"I have no desire to be equal to man. I prefer to maintain my superiority"

(Lucy Maud Montgomery......Love it!)

A lighthearted look at being a woman:

1. We got off the Titanic first

2. We can scare our bosses with gynecological disorder


3. Taxis stop for us

4. We don't look like a frog in a blender when dancing

5. No fashion faux pas we make could ever rival the Speedo

6. We don't have to break wind to amuse ourselves

7. We can congradulate a teammate without touching her


8. We never have to reach down to check that our genitals

are still there

9. We can talk to members of the opposite sex without having

to picture them naked

10. We know that there are times when chocolate is the only

solution to a problem

11. We can make snide comments about men in their

presence because we know they aren't listening anyway

~*~* Gals, Celebrate Today and Everyday! *~*~

Hey Sue, this is great! A couple of corrections to the list:

Firstly, I have seen women dancing that looked like frogs however (a) they had usually consumed something highly alcoholic and (b) the ment didn't seem to care anyhow.

Secondly, chocolate is the solution to EVERY problem. Trust me on this!

Hugs, my Friend!
