That's what I often imagine as I read blogs of women I've never met from all over the country.
So in case you ever have considered that about me, I think there are some things you need to know:
1.) I drink large quantities of UNsweet tea with extra lemons. I'm usually seen carrying a Chick-fil-a cup full of it on a daily basis. This causes many southerners to look at me with distaste and call me a Yankee.
2.) I'm not creative. This is not a statement of humility. It's fact. In my elementary school, students had the opportunity to be invited on a yearly basis to try and "test" into the "Talented and Gifted" program.
That was never me. In fact, in the fifth grade, I was one of four kids in my class who were not invited to take the test while the other twenty kids in our class were. I can still remember sitting in the classroom just waiting for the rest of the class to get back. Bless my heart.
3.) To further prove number #2, I can honestly say that I never think of my day in terms doing crafts, painting, or sewing. I can guarantee that I will never attempt to show you how to refinish furniture, paint a mural, or embroider a onesie on this blog. I prefer, instead, to surround myself with very talented people to do those things for me.
4.) Once I find a fashion piece I like, it becomes my "thing." (Probably that creative issue again.)
- I rocked the colored jean my senior year of high school. If it came in a color, I owned it. Mauve jean? Check. Dark green jean? Check. They're coming back in style soon. Trust me.
- For a few years I owned the tailored blazer. Literally and figuratively. In fact, I still actually own them; in navy, brown, mustard, cream, green, black... Let me know if you need to borrow one.
- My current obsession are sweater coats and scarves. I own a lot. In fact, there's a good chance that on any given day, I'll be wearing one or the other. Or both. I need an intervention.
5.) I can't do a cartwheel.
So what do you think? Would we be real-life friends?
