"I don't want realism. I want magic! Yes, yes, magic. I try to give that to people. I do misrepresent things. I don't tell truths. I tell what ought to be truth." -Blanche DuBois -

Southern wisdom

I'm reading this amazing book by Loraine Despres, and it's really fun & useful.

Here there's some tips that you can find:

How to Make Conversation:

Men always find themselves the most fascinating subject of any conversation. When in doubt, let him talk about himself. He’ll think you’re a brilliant conversationalist. Rule Number 11

Laugh at his wit, and he’ll admire your sense of humor. Rule Number 13

Let him know you think he’s intelligent and he’ll be awed by your perspicacity, even if he can’t pronounce the word. Rule Number 15


It’s OK for a woman to know her place. She just shouldn’t stay there. Rule Number 48

Don’t jump off the roof, if you don’t expect to hit the ground. This bit of wisdom comes from Sissy’s Suffragist grandmother, Belle Cantrell. Rule Number 62

You have to take your life into your own hands otherwise you can be damned sure, someone else will take it in theirs. Rule Number 32

How to Get His Attention at a Party:

Look at him over your shoulder or up at him through your eyelashes, and he’ll salivate like a Pavlovian dog. Pat the seat next to you and he’ll come bounding across the room. It’s usually ok, to let him sit on the furniture. Rule Number 5

This book teaches to the girls how to behave,and respecting old values ​​of the south, but up to date, in our times. Mrs Loraine Despres writes very well, and I think that all of you coul fall in love with this book.
