Sometimes, we have to make our own rules.
Society tells us we can vote when we’re 18 years old, moms tell us not to dress slutty, dads tell us to remember to balance our checkbooks, McDonalds tells us breakfast ends at 10am, Sarah Palin tells us only crazy idiots get reality TV shows (Michelle Obama is trying to deprive us of dessert with anti-obesity initiatives, really?), and my body tells me it needs 8 hours of sleep…or else.
I hate being told what to do, so in an act of immature teenage rebellion, I make my own:
Necklace OR earrings. Never both.
I never date men who smoke. It’s a dealbreaker.
Always laugh at someone’s jokes unless they are mean, cruel or downright bad. What’s the harm in making someone feel funny by laughing and giving yourself an ab workout at the same time?
Please and thank you never go out of style.
And when it comes to chocolate, serving sizes simply don’t count.
