It has To Be A Societal Fix

One of my clients said her son had given up on women.

I said, "why?"

She said, "He said he's not going to get serious again unless he can find some one like his mom."

He meant domestically.

She said she told him, "they don't come like that any more."

Expectations on both sides are reeling out of control..

Society needs my book.

New Book

My original editor; Bianca Dumah, called and said she wanted to write a novel about the subject matter in my book and asked if I would care.

I said, "Absolutely not. I think the more that is said on this subject, the more we will get change."

Love it.

Pure Hell

I had a girl in my salon yesterday who was the product of divorce. She asked me about my book.

I said, "My next book is going to be about divorce. I want you to write your experience for me." I added, "I will have letters from lots of kids who have been through the divorce of their parents."

She started to cry and said, "Mine will be pure hell."

I could see the pain all over her face.

I was talking to a friend yesterday. I asked her how she was enjoying retirement.

She said, "The only one retired in my house is my husband." She added, "The only way I will be retired is to leave my husband, or I should say, 'my child'."

It was sad. Retirement is supposed to be a joy.

Wedding Presents

One of my clients who read my manuscript, asked me when my book was coming out.

I said, "June."

She said, "I want to buy 20 copies. I am going to give them to newly weds for their wedding present."

One of my clients said, "There are probably going to be some men who are going to hate you for writing your book."

I said, "In the first place, if they read it they will find out it is very friendly to men."

"However," I said, "I am hoping for controversy because controversy causes dialogue."

Good Quality Card

Get a 3 by 5 card and put all of your husbands good qualities on it. Every time he is acting like a jerk, take the card out and read it. If his good qualities out way his bad, HE IS A KEEPER.

The Serenity Prayer

I had a client today who announced that she was getting a divorce.

I asked her if she loved her husband.

She said, "Yes, but he drives me crazy." she said, "He is lazy, he spends too much money------------." It went on forever.

I said, "What if you figured out what you could accept, what you couldn't, and just worked on the things that could be changed."

The papers had been filed so her half hour appointment turned into an hour and a half. I think I finally convinced her how much worse off she would be if she got a divorce.

I will keep an eye on her.
