Magical World

Wouldn't it be lovely if, with just a twitch of the nose, life, or any aspect of it could be changed. Instead, positive changes always seem to involve tremendously hard work, determination, and endless setbacks. How lovely it would be to have the powers of Samantha Stephens.

Things that must be shared

I discovered a new book. It's called, Nancy Drew's Guide to Life, and has hints, tips, and answers to many questions. I will be sharing excerpts from this book over the next few weeks, because even if it isn't helpful, I find it funny, and that's a good enough reason for anything.

Survival Strategy: "If the ceiling collapses, breathe through a handkerchief to avoid inhaling dust." --The Hidden Staircase

Dating: a Primer: "Make your date work for you--send him on B-level errands you can't seem to fit into your busy schedule." --The Clue in the Diary

Sleuthing 101: "Never sleuth on an empty stomach." --The Hidden Staircase

The Delicate Art of Etiquette: "Don't let your troubles get in the way of enjoying a leisurely and delightful lunch." --The Secret of the Old Clock

Wilderness Tips: "A bright overhead light will dull an owl's vision enough to remove it from indoors. Of course, thick gloves and quick reflexes help." --The Hidden Staircase

On Being a Lady: "A face distorted with anger will only accentuate a person's innate ugliness." --The Secret of the Old Clock

Powers of Observation: "If you spot a disdainful shopper damaging an item and then walking away, you may be able to snatch it up at a serious price reduction." --The Secret of the Old Clock

Accoutrements: "Take matches from restaurants and hotel dining rooms. You just might need them to light a kerosene lamp!" --The Bungalow Mystery

I leave all who might encounter my blog to ponder these pearls of wisdom. And, should there be a return visit, you will definitely find more. I'm thinking Nancy has the answer to everything.
