Stand Up

Bitter Betty found an awesome retro guide on how to stand. I'm going to keep my arms just like the picture above all day tomorrow. I'm sure someone will compliment me on my pertness.

Oh good lord, woman! Don't post things like that at this time of night. My snorts of laughter are going to wake up my family!!

Oh I love the pertness pose......a sassy position!!! Could be used to advantage in the right situation. Oh, I can think of a few.

You are all super sassy.

Adriane - I love those, and her other book. So I was bummed when I met her at Blogher and she wasn't too friendly. Not down with talking to a a "mommy blogger".

I am planning on trying a social experiment:
I will stand in any of the pictured poses while talking to my husband and see how many times he asks me what i am all pissed about.

Jennifer said...

Sassy! She looks like she just touched raw chicken and needs a good squirt of hand soap.

I love how subtle women used to be. Now, my "sassy position" is my middle finger an inch and a half from whoever's face while I (maturely) stick out my tongue.

And who said life doesn't get better?

I don't know, when I stand like that I think I look a bit more "put out" than "sassy." Maybe my shoulders aren't back far enough.

If I had only known that standing properly would make the world go round. Thanks for the tidbit. :)

I wanna be sassy and pert, too! I shall try this immediately! I can't wait to hear everyone fawn over how sassy and pert I appear today!

I've been needing a good sassy position that could be used to advantage in the right situation!!

She obviously does not know that she would look slimmer if she stood to the side.

LMAO!!! Seriously that was laugh out loud funny! I don't feel pert when I do that tho. I just tried it and I just felt like I was trying to prove I was mad and my husband wouldn't believe me. Maybe the middle finger one will work better....

JoeinVegas said...

My goodness, you look so pert today! (or is that perty?)

Lotta said...

I practiced this and I think the trick is to not cock your hip. Keep those hips straight and ladylike or it looks too sassy. Can't have you being sassy!

Sassy, schmassy. That woman has NOTHING over my "stick out my belly, slouch, and arms-crossed" stnce!
