Juicy Reading

One of the things I love about being in the Ladies Who Launch network is discovering cool people like Kelly Epperson. I saw a post from Kelly on a Ladies Who Launch discussion board, with her intriguing website address underneath her name, http://www.whenlifestinks.com/. Her URL address piqued my curiousty, so I decided to click. I discovered that Kelly is the author of the book When Life Stinks, It's Time to Wash the Gym Clothes. She offers a sneak preview of the book, an excerpt called: The Message Is: 'Look at My Butt'. Since I hail from a family of booty-licious women (we all carry lots of junk in our trunks), I just had to take a look. In fact, for years, I've owned a magnet with a black and white image of a wholesome fifties school girl kneeling in her pajamas at her bedside. She is saying her nightly prayers, and her thought bubble reads: "Dear God, Thank you for the nice face, but the fat ass has got to go!" Here is the beginning of Kelly's essay:

The Message Is: "Look At My Butt"

They're everywhere. I thought it was a passing fad, but this fashion statement is sticking around. Teenage girls wear sweat pants with words emblazoned across the rear end. No matter the word, "Cute," "UCLA," or "Pinch Me," the real message is "look at my butt."
I shake my head with envy. Do it while you can, girls.
My fashion consultants, my boys, tell me I could wear sweats like that. "BIG" or "WIDE LOAD" tickle their fancy. They think "Danger: Hazardous Gas" would be hilarious. I think "Made You Look" would be clever.
As women age, more words fit on the gluteus maximus. The classic, "Does this make my butt look fat?" could be popular. Depending upon my mood, I'd wear "Yeah, baby, I still got it,: or :Thanks! No one has checked out my butt since 8th grade."
