Fashion Tip From J-Mom

My mother had this to offer last night:

"To give the illusion of added height, walk a short dog."

Isn’t she wonderfully odd? No. she doesn’t have a dog. Yes she’s short, but doesn’t ever seem overly concerned about it, either. Just J-Mom randomness.

It got me thinking… what about "To appear shorter, walk a tall dog." Does that work? And how about "To appear thinner, walk a fat dog?" (if done repeatedly, i think that one might work, actually.) "To appear truly odd, walk a cat?"

I bet y’all could come up with some J-Mom style tips. Share them in comments, please?

To appear crazy, walk 5 dogs?? To appear tanned walk a pale dog? T try you patience, walk a cat? These are hard, who knew J-mom was a genius to come up with good ones!

To appear full-haired, walk a hairless dog? To appear young, hot, Hollywood-ish, walk–no carry–a small dog in your purse? To appear very calm and together, walk a hyper dog? To appear younger, walk an old dog? Hmmmmmm.

Cracking up at Muley’s J-mom-ism.

I don’t have one to add, but it reminded me of something I saw at the park today. A woman and her little girl (maybe 3 yrs) walking 5 dogs….all little. She had 2 poodles, 2 chihuahuas and one bigger mix and she was pushing an empty stroller. When she came back by the picnic area, the smallest chihuahua was being pushed in the stroller…guess he gets tuckered faster than the others. It made me laugh.

To appear more beautiful, walk an ugly dog.

On bad hair days, walk a beautiful dog (to detract attention).

If you have a long neck, walk a giraffe.

If your nose is too big, walk an elephant.

I need to get me a short, fat, ugly dog…and an elephant.

Wow! Geekwif was here! That doesn’t happen too often that we comment near each other. seeing makes me miss her…

anywhooooo…. How about to appear younger, walk a grey dog? or
To appear richer, carry a chihuaha? (smirk… I like that one!)

Hope you have a lovely valentine’s day, HM! Mine is low-key and gluey.

To appear energetic and full of life, walk an English Bulldog. Yes, I have one. I’d be better off walking a turtle. He he.

I walk a short fluffy Pomeranian whose energy level is off the chart. Doesn’t make me look any taller, thinner, or calmer, but it’s good for my ego–he adores me!

I just can’t come up with one! I’ve been sitting here for several minutes trying to think and it’s not working. I guess it’s the pregnancy!
