I will always walk with my head up, and not wiggle so much

A post of Joan‘s reminded me of the wonderful To Do List blog, a collection of lists from around the world. My favourite of the current batch was written on December 31st at 11:55 p.m and is titled “New Year’s Resolutions of a Brooklyn Teenage Girl, 1957” (no permalinks to individual posts I’m afraid, scroll down to Tuesday, February 28, 2006 (or go to the February 2006 archives).

New Year’s Resolutions

1) I will sew buttons as soon as they fall off.

But then you won’t get to collect buttons in a pretty jar.

2) I will wear lipstick whenever I leave the house.


3) I will not tease boys (especially ones over 18).

At least I think it’s 18. I need a lewd comment from Doobyus here.

4) I will not get fat and flabby.

God forbid.

5) I will start every day off by grinning in the mirror.

Have you tried the tennis ball technique?

6) I will not light a cigarette if I don’t really want it.

Good for you!

7) I will gossip a little less maliciously with Ruth.

Remember the old saying, “Gossip is halitosis of the mind.”

8) I will not eat as much.

I’m sensing food issues here.

9) I will not fall into bed without brushing my hair & teeth, no matter what time it is.

I love the underlining.

10) I will always walk with my head up, and not wiggle so much.

Wiggle, girl, wiggle!

11) I will not pay for dates with kisses.

At least, I think that word is kisses. It is, isn’t it?

12) I will not go out with icky boys, ever!

But you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your handsome prince!

    Yes, boys under 18 will just cry and then run away, boys over 18 will put you over their knees and smack your naughty bottom… or something!

    … and you really should wiggle… and curvy is nice… and, depending on the date, rethink the kiss thing!!
