WHEN IN DOUBT, WEAR A DRESS.
EAT LUNCH WITH THE NEW GIRL.
IF YOU CAN FOLLOW A RECIPE, YOU CAN BUILD A TABLE.
THROW LIKE A GIRL.
CLIMB TREES. Skin knees.

A foreign accent does not make him More sophisticated.
Let him take your coat. That's the moment he's been waiting for.
* * *
Never play dumb. EXCEPT AT THE POKER TABLE.
TRY NOT TO MAKE FUN OF YOUR BROTHER IN FRONT OF OTHER GIRLS.
The best way to remove red wine is with white wine.
If you start the day in sweatpants, you will likely end the day in sweatpants.
Dance with your dad. And not just on your wedding day.
There's more to life than being a passenger.
