Secondhand Sunday

Sunday, May 29, 2011

Sundays are my Secondhand day. I'm basically too lazy to think of anything new to say so I re-post a "vintage" entry.

If you aren't in the mood for repeats, please feel free to change the channel.

When I was a little girl, one of my favorite games was called "What Shall I Be?"

This exciting game showed us all the options that were available for the aspiring career girl in 1972.

The most helpful thing was that you could look at your personal attributes and weed through the careers to find the one you were best suited for.

You are emotional: Good for Model and Actress

You failed biology: Bad for Teacher and Nurse

You have a nice smile: Good for Airline Hostess and Model

You are overweight: Bad for Airline Hostess, Ballet Dancer and Model

You are pretty: Good for Model and Actress

You are clumsy: Bad for Airline Hostess, Ballet Dancer, Model and Nurse

You are friendly: Good for Airline Hostess, Nurse and Teacher

You are a slow thinker: Bad for Airline Hostess and Nurse

You are calm in an emergency: Good for Airline Hostess, Nurse and Teacher

You get too excited: Bad for Airline Hostess and Nurse

Oh, the dreams that were available to us as young ladies...

What a crock of shit!

The years I wasted when I could have had this lovely as my role model.

"She starts dancing when the music starts and goes up and down and round and round."

The personality cards would still be helpful for choosing the right career.

You would be a great pole dancer if:

You are pretty

You aren't clumsy

You failed biology

You are a slow thinker

You have a nice smile

We've come a long way, baby.


  1. Everyone needs a goal.

    I think pole dancers dress differently now, or so I've heard.

  2. Loved reading this post again, Chrissy!


    And I shared the first time, I would definitely be the "actress" - HA!

    Have a supa' Sunday, girl!



C'mon, you know you want to say it..
