2. Occasionally I have conversations with male friends. A few of them have said that they have been embarrassed at times because their wives didn't put forth any effort to look nice when they went somewhere together. One man told me that he tried to walk a few steps ahead of his wife so no one would know she was with him. He felt very ashamed of himself for doing that. Men like to be envied by other men. Some of my gentlemen readers may not agree but it's true. Ladies, take more time for yourselves, especially when you are attending a special event with your husband or boyfriend. You are a reflection of him and it will make him feel good to have you on his arm. You are also a reflection of your business or position in the community. Looking worn out and wearing old, ill fitting clothing will make you feel bad and it will show on your face. When you look nice and put together, it increases your self-confidence. Your guy will feel that too and he will be proud to have you with him.
3. While at the dry cleaners yesterday I asked how much it would cost to have my rain coat treated to repel water. He said it was only $4.25. The water repellant will keep the rain and snow from penetrating the fibers of your coat so you will stay dryer. When you get your coat back from the cleaners put a pair of gloves in the pockets and a warm scarf over the hanger. You will be ready to go in an instant because you won't spend time looking for your gloves and scarf.
