Girl Friday

Girl Friday, as in it is Friday, I'm a girly-girl and want to share some girly things.

 I love the feminine things for girls.

I love the freedom of being a girl.

I love the fun of being a girl.


I love the summerness of being a girl.
Have you ever noticed that no matter what time of year it is, girls have a summer quality?


I love the lightheartedness of being a girl.


I love frilly, frivolous things.


I love being soft and silky.


I love getting ready for a big date.


I love the closeness girls share.  We can snuggle like sisters or kittens, even though we are just friends.


This reminds of a completely embarrassing thing I did in high school.  I have a hard time understanding what is being said over microphones.  I don't know why.  We were rehearsing our graduation ceremony.  I had never been to one before, so I didn't know what really went on there.  I was in the end of the row and whoever was speaking in the microphone said something and the people directly in front of me, just the ones on the end of the rows in front of me, all got up and were going somewhere.  I had no clue what we were doing, so I went too.  It turned out they all happened to be in the choir and they were to go up and take their places in the stand to sing.  I was not in the choir.  I got up there, saw what was going on, and realized I had made a mistake.  The guy speaking into the microphone waited quietly as I walked back to take my seat in front of 350 people.  I was so embarrassed.  When I got back to my seat, I lay my head on the shoulder of the girl next to me and cried.  I'm sure if he had just kept gabbing about whatever, it wouldn't have been as big of a deal.  But no, he stopped talking so all attention was on me.  I can laugh now, but then I cringed. 

 I love how no matter what, we are all beautiful.



  1. Lori I remember frad day too and the speakers sucked then, I too never understood what they were seeing and with my hearing problem it was more of a problem. I can see me doing that too. I have to tell you I have done things like that too. Thank god for girlfriends. They are so comforting. I love being a girl or a women somedays but there are other days I could take it or leave it.

  2. I think I would have done more than cringe - I would have crawled under the nearest chair and stayed there.
    But in general, yes, I agree, being a girl is more fun than being a guy could ever be!

  3. I was mortified. All I could do was cry, but in the car afterwards with my BFF and boyfriend, we all laughed and laughed. It was classic Lori. :)

  4. Boy as I look back on my post, I could not spell or talk right, sorry about that.
