Neat handwriting my best attribute
HAVING tried on five outfits and decided they all made me look lumpy, I had a bit of a body image moan when I met up with pals at the weekend.
I’ve never bought into this idea that January has us a bit down in the dumps.
But this year, it seems to have taken a while to kick-start the “positive mental attitude” supposed to accompany a new year.
“Come on Martel,” one friend said, “Let’s be a bit more confident.
“What’s your favourite thing about yourself?”
Her number one attribute, she said, was her arms.
She doesn’t like her dimply thighs and thinks her hair is too thin.
But she’s proud of her arms which are naturally toned.
“Come on,” she prompted again, “there must be something.”
“I’ve got it!”, I said, proud as punch.
“My handwriting. Everyone says it and it’s true — even though I do say so myself — I’ve got very neat handwriting.”
Judging by the look on her face, it’s not quite what she was after.
