Tell this to your husbands and boyfriends

  1. According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late Novemeber, mid - December. Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.

    Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen had to be a girl.

    We should've known. ONLY women would be able to drag a fat a$$ man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

    If you're an old maid at 25 then what am I at 26 (almost 27)?

    VERY cute observation about the reindeer!!! LOVE IT!!!

    About the other stuff...

    I was determined to get married before I was 30. I had been with my now-husband since I was 20 years old and was getting really tired of waiting. I told him when I was around 28 that I was worried I wouldn't be married by the big 3-0. He told me to relax, that I still had 2 years. I said, "No, YOU have 2 years. I'M going to be married before I'm 30, whether it's to you or not!!!"

    We tied the knot 3 months before my 30th.

    (Then there was my mother, who told me a couple of months after our wedding that I'd be pregnant within the year. I said no, we weren't even going to be trying until next year. Yet, she insisted I'd be pregnant. She said that she wasn't getting any younger, and frankly neither was I! Geez, thanks mom! One surprise pregnancy later, and I've realized that Mom really does know EVERYTHING.)

    Well, fit me for a rocker and orthopaedic shoes! I'm OVER 30 not married with no kids. (I do have a kewl boyfriend though)

    Trust me ladies, 30 or 33 or 35 feels just as good as 18. I actually got smarter and a lot sexier when I turned 30.

    Gompers, I'm so unbelievably happy for you. Can you sleep? I think I'd be so excited I wouldn't be able to sit down. Of course, when you're 9 months pregnant that's probably all you want to do.
