You Talkin' to ME?!?!

High Maintenence? Me?

So they say! I tell you I felt a bit like Sally in "When Harry Met Sally" and he informed her she is the worst type of female - high maintenece but thinks she's not.

I've always prided myself on NOT being a High Maint. kinda gal. Let's review.

I do my own nails - and right now between the move and so much time in the plant I barely remember the last time I actually "did" them. And you may hear me comment on breaking one - but I defy anyone to say they've heard me lament it. It's a flippin' nail. They grow back.

I don't spend a lot of "prep" time. My make-up takes all of about 5 mins. And that is only if I have to go out in public and I don't want to embarrass anyone. My hair - yes, I am particular about the cut and color - but again, just a few minutes in the morning....all done. And if it doesn't turn out (or on the weekends) I have my beloved hats.

I'm not a picky eater. And THAT is more than obvious. The list of things I DON'T like is short and sparse.

I don't expect people to take care of me. Never have, never will.

I don't throw fits if I'm not the center of attention. Not my style.

Yes - I am a bit anal retentive - especially when it comes to my work. It's just that after years of doing this I have a system. It works. Don't f*ck with it.

..."this is what I'm gonna need for you to do"..... OK, I'll give you that one.

But High Maintenence? ME?!?! I was just amazed when someone said that to me....but then I guess we never really do see ourselves the way others see us.

But Damn........................................... OUCH

You're not high maintenance. The person who called you that needs to move down here to S. Florida. I'll show them high maintenance!

I think the bad example family ladies are similar...I haven't heard much from any of the ladies, where I could label any of of high maintainance. "Whoever this person is", they must be nuts.....

High maintenance? You?!! I have a REALLY hard time picturing you as that type whatsoever. ou drive a Corvette and trade Cody in on a teacup Pomeranian...perhaps?
