Free Advice

I just got Free Advice in the mail the other day. One of the authors is someone I know from the TOC Summer Seminar. If you look at the cover, she's the one in the middle, Caroline Johnson.

I had actually looked at this book in the store before. It looked funny, insightful, but aimed at people in the dating marketplace. Then I realized a friend had written it, and I had to have it.

It alternates serious with humorous advice.

"Don't be afraid of the person who calls you ugly, because coming around the next corner will be someone who is convinced that you should be the next Speaker of the House. You cannot predict, much less control, what other people will think of you. Your opinon is the one that really matters."

"The right sheets are very important. Kiddie-cartoon sheets should be left in the crib. No woman wants to make love to a man on top of Tweety-Bird."

Alas, poor Tweety,
Have your heard?
Your wonderful sheets
Are for the birds.
