It's Time To Hang Up Your Boa!

I admit I love any show on t.v. that has some sort of dance and singing competition to it. So I discovered a few weeks ago - ta da - Let's Find The Next New Pussycat Doll". Now for those of you who are not familiar with this group (like me) you might recognize....(imagine a music beat playing) "Don't Cha Wish Your Girlfriend Was Hot Like Me." I've watched all of ten minutes of this show and I Do Not Recommend This Show!!! Repeat-Not! But...In that ten minutes I have picked up some life wisdom that begs to be repeated. In fact when I heard these small tidbits of knowledge I was deeply moved, my soul stirred. Get ready, here is the first:
NUMBER 1 - Every woman has a little pussycat doll in them. Wow, I didn't know that. The next time I go out, I'm gonna git down, snap my finger, give some unsuspecting man a feline sultry look, and watch out! There gist ain't gonna be no stoppin me. You bet, my claws are ready and my purr is revving up-so be prepared.
NUMBER 2 - It's time to hang up your boa! OOOOOOH....that's harsh. At the end of every show one girl is eliminated from the competition. (A little background info)-each girl has a bright red boa that she dances with in rehearsal, at home and finally in the competition. After their bootylicious number one girl is called out and told, "Sorry hon, but it's time to hang up your boa." A truer statement has never been said. For each of us, at some time, we will all have to hang up our boa. But, will we know when, and will we do it with the style and class a boa retirement requires. I don't know about you, but when I last got up in front of the ward in an old robe and curlers with fake eyelashes and belted some lyrics from "Guys and Dolls", why oh why didn't I recognize that a boa ceremony would have been appropriate. Oh no... I had to go on to dress up like The Mad Hatter, A Cheerless Housewife, and countless other moments that were past the true pussycat stage. I sorrow to know that when I got up to bear my testimony in church and happened to fall down, all the way, legs over head-only to stand up and wave to the congregation- didn't someone I love come to me and say, "Sorry, sweetie, but it's time to hang up your boa." Remember: Friends don't let their friends carelessly flaunt their boa's.

Honey keep flanting that boa til they pry it from your cold dead fingers. Make sure it is the right man that you are giving the cat's eye.

I'm so mad at myself, but when I moved I got rid of most of my books, including my old BYU textbooks. Anyway there is a poem, which I just barely remember from my college days, and I am sure I'm being foolish to try and quote it, but the title had something to do to with J. Alfred Prucock--or something like that. Anyway it was about a man getting older, and one of the things he asks is "Do I dare to eat a peach?" I've always remembered that, because sometimes as I get older I become so afraid of trying anything new and being foolish that I stagnate and can barely walk out the door. Or I do the opposite and throw caution away and make a total fool of myself. I hope you never throw away your boa.

I loved that boa - it will always be the supreme dress up.

I have to admit there were a few times, only after fighting for the black leotard, that Ben and I turned for the boa.

amazing. I´m on the other side of the continent and i could have written every word you wrote (if I was as good writer :)
I was looking for the exactly spelling of the sentence cause I problably watched the same 10 min of the same non-recomended show you watched to write something about the same lesson...
After all, feeling like keeping my boa.
Feliz 2008
