What Should A Woman Have? (with comments)

I have to make a painstakingly shocking confession. I checked my Friendster account! No… not to check random pics of penis or gays floating around the home page (you don’t believe me? go check yourself :p). And I also looked up my old Friendster blog. Yes there are some new comments selling Viagra and some others who called me asshole and spammed my fuck blog (apparently those are the language used by Friendster users these days).

Fortunately, I found an old post. I got it from some chained e-mail several years ago. You probably have read it as well. Anyway, I think it is relevant, hence this repost 🙂

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
…one old love
she can imagine
going back to..
and one who reminds
her how far she has come…
(how far? hmmm…let me count. Jerk, s.o.b, prick, horny married guy,  horny commitment-phobic single guy and what else? The best is yet to come 😉  Just like my best friend always says: you gotta kiss a lot of frogs before you get to kiss your prince)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
…enough money within her
control to move out and
rent a place of her own
even if she never wants
to or needs to…
(absolutely in line with my opinion. Someday I‘ll buy my own house when I am too old to be ‘anak kost’)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
..something perfect to wear if the employer
or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour…
(Little black dress is a must-have item! It’s understated yet stylish, giving you the instant elegant look.)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
..a youth she’s content
to leave behind…
(yup yup…the proud feeling of ‘I’ve been there’ and the long lasting benefit of our rigorous skin/hair/beauty regime ^__^)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
…a past juicy enough that
she’s looking forward to
retelling it in her old age…
(Ladies…remove the ‘goody goody label’ on your back from now on. Let your wild side see the light of day.)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
…a set of screwdrivers,
cordless drill, and a black
lace bra…)

(check! check! check!)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
..one friend who always makes
her laugh… and one who lets her cry…
(Can we have a 2-in-1 package? *fingers-crossed*)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
…a good piece of furniture
not previously owned by anyone
else in her family..
(I’ll have some Avant-Garde furnitures in my living room one day).

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
…eight matching plates, wine
glasses with stems, and a recipe
for a meal that will make her
guests feel honored..
(I will. Someday :P)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
…a feeling of control over her destiny…
(We are the master of our own destiny. Unless you are a mistress, of course).

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW….
how to fall in love without
losing herself…
(There’s always a way back if you’re lost. Don’t worry.. you will be just fine 😉 )

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
..how to quit a job,
break up with a lover,
and confront a friend without ruining the friendship…
and how to change a tire!!!!!!!
(Don’t lose your courage no matter what. Keep your chin up and walk gracefully whatever life throws at you.)

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
…when to try harder… and
when to walk away….
(Ask yourself a question. Are you doing it for you or your ego?)

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
…that she can’t change the
length of her calves, the width
of her hips, or the nature of her
parents…
(Thank God, it didn’t mention anything about thighs. It means they are fixable (I hope so!).

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
…that her childhood may not have been perfect…
but its over…
(My one and only grief is that I didn’t have that Barbie doll)

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW….
…what she would and wouldn’t
do for love or more…
(Never let him trample your dignity. It’s unacceptable in every way.)

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
..how to live alone… even if
she doesn’t like it…
(I’ve been living alone for 10 years now. I’m getting too comfortable I’m afraid I will have difficulties adjusting to ‘you know what’)

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
…whom she can trust,
whom she can’t,
and why she shouldn’t
take it personally…
(So what? You screw up. You trusted someone who eventually stabbed you. You can’t undo it. So just go back to square one. Think they don’t exist, just like before you know them.)

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
…where to go…  be it to her best friend’s kitchen table.. or a
charming inn in the woods…  when her soul needs soothing…
(I love the charming inn idea better…hehe..of course I’ll take my best friend with me.)

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
what she can and can’t
accomplish in a day..
a month…and a year…

(Too bad, I’m not big on making a to-do list. LOL)
