It is my habit to rip out magazine pages that have inspiring content. I put these pages into folders labeled things like write, idea, blog, class, recipe – you get the picture. I recently came across a page I had ripped out of Ladies’ Home Journal. Thirty years ago. Apparently intending to send a submission to their “Last Laughs” column in hopes of being one of the witty $25 recipients. Having missed the opportunity to send a submission – by three decades – I was ready to toss it out as part of my de-cluttering effort. (Does one page count as ‘one item’?) Before sending it off to the landfill, I read through the ‘last laughs’ from people who actually sent them in. That’s where I saw this timeless list of Little White Lies:
2. “You may experience some mild discomfort.”
3. “I’m sure it won’t stain.”
4. “You carry it well.”
5. “One size fits all.”
Clearly my habit of ripping out inspiring magazine pages is not the only thing that hasn’t changed in 30 years! – El
