Damsel or Dynamo?

Well congratulations to Robb (who knows his Maritime women too well!) and others who also guessed right.

I did not bat my eyelashes and look all helpless. I imagine that if I had done that, it would have come across as so fake that the gentelmen offering their help would have seen right through it, snorted and walked away.

Instead, I did what many of you expected. When I was (repeatedly) offered help, I looked up from my position crouched in my LBD (little black dress) over the bin of cupboard handles, then smiled and gently said, "I found what I need. Thanks, though!"

After all, the attire did require at least an attempt at being gracious. :-)

I do like Ginger's idea of dressing opposite of what might be expected in a certain situation, just to see what the reaction would be. That could provide some interesting blog fodder for a while, eh? But then again, it doesn't surprise me that Ginger would say that... given the photos I've seen of some interesting race attire that cookie has been known to wear! ;-)

Thanks for your guesses! I'll be around to visit some blogs over the next few days...

hmmmm, isn't it funny how helpful males can be at times? and if you were at macy's cosmetic counter, they would probably ignore you....sometimes i'm ashamed to say, i use "it" to get help. i mean, whats the use of owning a uterus and boobs at my age, if i can't get something out of it.

Although unrelated to your post, me thinks a birthday is just around the corner :)

Let me hopefully be one of the first to wish you a wonderful birthday (I know, I'm a few days early). You look effing smashing for 40 -- just kidding ;)
