OT - Women Wednesday
By my recent blogs, you may have surmised that I will soon have the displeasure of being in the presence of Satan, er, BioHo. Yippee.
Over the years (yesterday marked my 7 year anniversary of joining STalk!), I have often been advised "Don't Go" to any events where the noxious (and obnoxious) 'Ho is in attendence. And part of me wanted to do exactly that to avoid her toxicity and BS.
Weeeellll... my DH and I are a team and, as his wife, I want to be by his side. IOW, not going is not an option. I'm more concerned that 'Ho will do something to hurt the skids than I am over anything she will say/do to me. This Valkyrie can hold her own.
But that doesn't mean I don't have anxiety over what will surely be a clusterf*ck, even if only in part. So. For those of us who plan to brave the unknown and wade into murky waters, let's share some tips!
- Wear something that looks good AND makes you feel good. This dress I'm making LOOKS gorgeous. Add new leather kitten heals and purse and some lovely real and costume jewelry... Hope I can do that outfit justice! I also have some new clothes. Maybe I'll look for another big, floppy hat and channel some Southern Belle...
- Be proud to be on your husband's arm. That's a given. I love him and still think he's HAWT. One look at those beaten up, scarred, muscular man hands that can crack walnuts or gently hold a baby make me weak in the knees.
- Be above the BS and NEVER sink to their level. Take the high road, even when it hurts. I'm sure I have scars in my mouth from biting my inner cheeks and tongue, but they are worth it! I'll be a lady no matter how much The Valkyrie wants to slap back.
- Smile like I have a secret. I often give my DH a little "knowing" smile. Makes nosy people crazy. LOL
Whatya got, STalkers? Tips for those of us venturing into enemy territory.
