Patience is a Virtue

The Husband just came back from a business trip. This time, he spent 10 days in Eastern Europe, among the old Soviet states.

A couple of my friends asked me if I was worried that he'd come home with a new Russian mail-order bride.

Another friend said, "Don't worry about that! Everyone knows that Eastern European women don't age well.

"They basically go from hot young things:

..to babushkas! Overnight!

"Whereas everyone knows that Asian women age very well.

"It's that pearl cream you guys use.

"So bide your time; even if he brings another woman home, you'll come out ahead in 10 years."



Pearl cream! I remember seeing that infomercial so many times during my childhood, and I've had to learn not to make references to it because people think I'm crazy. (Maybe it was a metro NY thing?)

Hahaha. Well, I grew up in the Deep South, not metro NY. And I certainly saw that commercial when I was a kid!

Why do people say asinine comments like that? I only hope they were joking.

FYI, the only people who age as well or better than Asians are African Americans. :)

We don't refer to that as pearl cream. Hey, check out my latest vids on my blog. Yes, Jawbitch was on the ill-fated Carnival Splendor.

Totally true about the aging ting. People are always surprised to hear how old my (Asian) wife is; she easily passes for twenty years younger.

The only giveaway for Asian women seems to be that single streak of white hair running through the middle of scalp--or is that no longer a thing?

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
