Why Don’t You…?

Eat lentils?

Spoon your lover?


Re-read your favourite book?

Buy a pack of brand new coloured pencils?

Eat your salad with chopsticks?

Post someone a letter?


Drink a smoothie from a jam jar?

Light candles with matches?


Bake an old fashioned apple pie?

Say yes?

Eat nuts from a tea cup?

Stay naked a little too long after your shower?

    I love staying naked too long after my shower.  Weekends are the best for that reason!

    nuts from a tea cup is a great idea, I’ve been eating my ice cream from a glass tumbler for years now

    And along with the fresh pack of pencils, don’t forget to find a bitchin’ colouring in book.

    Whoo! I have accidentally done two of these things this week! I have written and posted a letter to a very good friend, and I have drunk a smoothie. Not from a jam jar though.

    I discovered that it’s actually quite difficult to estimate the amount of liquid a smoothie will make, so I had to put it in the biggest glass I had, and even drink a little right out of the blender. But I won’t tell if you won’t?

    Great suggestions Lady Smaggle xo

    Thank you! At home I always eat my salad with chopsticks but not in public because people do glance at you like you’re weird. It’s so much easier … everyone should try this. btw your blog is terrific!
