Chu Look Mavalus!!!

I was out for lunch the other day with a gentleman that runs a very popular toy company. Now, it's been kinda rough these past few weeks. All those long trips, then getting sick, then sicker and all the work that just piled up....

Anyway, we're sitting there chatting while we waited for our food. My friend looks across the table at me and says, out of the blue, "I would have never thought you could look this bad Tammi."

Gee. Thanks. Just what I need to hear before I walk into a really important meeting. NOT.

And folks - this shit happens to me all the time. I walked into Fritz's the other night. Fritz walks over, sits down next to me and says (after a 12 hour day btw) "Man Tammi. You look like hell."

Yeah. Thanks.

Do I get the "Gee you look FANTASTIC"s or the "Damn girl, you got it goin' on"s? No. No I don't. Not very often at all.

But believe you me, I sure do know when I'm having a bad hair day, or my clothes fit a little "off", or if I'm runnin' light on sleep. Yeah, I hear about that alright.

Now, I'm actually writing this with a smile on my face. You see - it's always been like this. I really believe it's my tin-foil hat. I just think it's funny as hell, and I really do love that people know they can say just about anything to me.

But ya gotta know - if it's gonna happen. It's gonna happen to me. Well, me and Army Wife (kids'll do that, ya know....)

It's because you look great the rest of the time :)

Ditto what Graumagus said.
If GREAT LOOKING all the time is your MO then all you'll get is the opposite.

Don't let 'em bring you down, those who say "you look like hell", and such. Ain't nothin' wrong with the way you look. Nothin' at all! :)

And I'm not just sayin' that 'cause I've been drinkin'.......

These people are obviously vision-impaired.

Every time *I* see you, the first thought in my head is "I wish I were single and 6 feet tall so I could have me some of THAT!" ;-)
