Thirteen Things My Grandmother's Generation Would Say About My Generation

1. That curio cabinet is just a glorified what-not stand.

2. Sushi? You mean you pay this much for bait and then you actually eat it? Well, I never!

3. God did not want you to expose your midriff for the world to see.

4. Speaking of exposing- What on earth was that Spears girl thinking? Her poor ole' mama.

5. Let me get this straight. You were in labor for how long, had access to narcotics, and you turned them down????!!!!!

6. Are you actually trying to pass off those frozen biscuits for homemade?

7. Never wear white after Labor Day. I- don't- care- what- Hollywood- says.

8. Don't be afraid of hard work. But, never let them see you sweat. You go ahead and glisten, girl.

9. Things you must have with you at all times- lipstick, face powder, Kleenex, and grace.

10. Remember, if God said it, that settles it, whether you believe it or not.

11. There are some things that should be left to the imagination.

12. There is a time and a place for all things.

13. This blogging stuff you girls are doing is about the silliest thing I ever heard of! When do you have time to get your hair washed and set on Fridays?

My Grandmother was always asking me if I had actually run a comb through my hair back when I wore it messy.

I love your list and #10 in particular.
