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.
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.
