Relationship Advice

As we get older, we think we've got this relationship/love thing all figured out regardless of our level of success. Recently my friend KC shared some valuable advice she got from an 8 year old. I think we probably all knew these truths back in the day but forgot them over time.

  • If a boy likes you, he'll ask you to chase him. If he's an older boy, he won't ask you to chase him. Instead he'll just run away and look over his shoulder to see if you're following him. When he stops and looks back, you need to stop running. You don't want him to see you chasing him.

  • When a boy wants to be your number one boyfriend, he'll put an "I Love You" note in your locker. Other boys will just ask for your number.

  • If you want a boy to be your boyfriend, you just tell them that they are your boyfriend. Then slap them across the face and tell them to bring all of their friends over. It is key to have several boyfriends at a time and you will want to have all of the boys in your class as your boyfriend.

It seems as there were a few more pearls of wisdom but I can't recall them right now. I'll be sure to post part deux when I (or KC) remember them.

The Advil Experiment

So I'm not so good at this blogging thing. I have a few postings I hope to get up within a few days but first I want to update you on the Advil experiment.

While it doesn't work overnight (as I was promised from the beauty queen who touted it on television), it does bring the inflamation down within a few days so I was quite pleased. So here are the steps.

1. Take an Advil (or use a generic like I did) and grind it up into a powder.

2. Remove as much of the coating as possible. This should be easy if you crush the pill before grinding it up. I found that it mostly just peeled back. Any of the coating that is left will add color to your mixture once you add water. Which bring us to...

3. Add a very small amount of water to a portion of the powder. You probably won't need all of the powder at once unless you are dealing with multiple spots. Be very cautious about how much water you use as the goal is to make a paste.

4. Once you have your paste (add more powder if you used too much water), place on the offending pimple.

Note that as it dries it will flake off and be pretty obvious on your face so best save this for just before bed.

I've tried this a few times now and have been happy with the results! Let me know what you think!
