How to be a more interesting woman

How to be a more interesting woman
Wedgwood
1965

Ladies, here is your chance to shed your boring personality.  Learn to speak “properly” with a variety of conversation topics. Don’t be too aggressive and attempt to share your personal opinions. (Men don’t really like that.) I am really going to work on my lady skills with this nice book. I’m already halfway there since an interesting woman evidently hangs out in the library.

  • “When you feel like… committing some silly act of violence…” scrub something. Good girl. O.o

  • Re. p. 42. I think you would be considerably more interesting if you actually did commit some silly act of violence.

  • Inquiring minds want to know: What would constitute a serious or sober (i.e. non-silly) act of violence?

  • Ahahahaha, I totally angry-clean things when there isn’t anything I can do to solve the problem. First the dishes, then the stove…..I figure, it uses up the energy and whether or not I feel any better afterwards, at least I’ve got clean dishes that I didn’t have before. Why use up my good mood on stupid cleaning? 😀

  • p13: when reading, make sure you stay in the 640’s. hey now! back away from the 300’s: those pesky social and political issues are nothing for you to trouble your pretty little head about!

  • I’m dying to know what Walter Mitty fantasy was revealed on page 27.

  • Have “opinions without being opinionated… disagree without being disagreeable…. practice forgetting yourself. Self-respect is being conscious of yourself without being self-conscious.” Riiiiiiiiiiiiight. Oh, and for god’s sake have a sense of humor because otherwise all the contradictions will make you angry clean.

  • “Practice forgetting yourself. Self respect is being conscious of youself without being self conscious.”

    Yes, because being an indvidual with a personality, thoughts and feelings is VASTLY overrated…

    This book was from the upstanding women from Stepford, Connecticut, wasn’t it?

  • At least it’s got a smart black woman choosing books in a Library on the cover, that’s pretty cool (especially for 1965)!
