Congratulations to Amy who won my Yummie Tummie contest! And thank you to everyone who entered - I loved what you had to say. Like... Being a woman is awesome because when I wave to babies in the grocery store no one thinks I'm a perv.
Being a woman is awesome because when it's 90 degrees in the summer and you have to attend a wedding, we get to wear a sleeveless dress and, in recent decades, no pantyhose, and men have to wear a suit. But you still have to wear high heels. Although another wonderful part of being a woman is also getting to wear pretty shoes. It's a toss up.
It is awesome to be a woman because we can cry our way out of speeding tickets!
Being a woman is awesome because you never have to worry about catching anything important in your zipper!
Being a woman is awesome because, while pregnant, we can bust out "I can't do 'X' right now--I JUST GREW A SPLEEN. What have YOU done today?" in order to avoid chores or expectations.
It's awesome being a woman because as long as you throw in a box of tampons at the checkout, no one questions or judges the 4 bars of chocolate, pint of ice cream, package of 2-bite chocolate cupcakes and can of whipped cream that you've thrown into your buggie at the grocery store!
Being a woman is awesome because it's fun to be more clever than a girl but yet not quite as crotchety as an old hag.
Being a woman is awesome because we get to wear as much fun, sparkly jewelry as we want.
Being a woman is awesome because we embody sexy, loving, nurturing, caring, get-it-done, and kick-ass, all in one neat little package.
Being a woman is awesome because we have the strength to do what needs to be done but the sensitivity to do it in a nice way.
Being a woman is awesome because I can bring home the bacon AND fry it up in a pan.
Being a woman is awesome because you can live life, give birth to life, be in charge the timing of it all, and secretly everyone knows you're the boss no matter what at the end of the day.
It is awesome to be a girl because you can be sweet and sensitive and cry and still be tough and funny and cool. You can have best friends that you keep your whole life and email them regarding topics ranging from who to vote for, what the best options for hair removal are and if the man you love is the right guy for you without question or mockery. You can also wear a bathrobe, riding helmet and heels and people MIGHT think you are just being fashion forward and not crazy.
