New You, New Poo

Dear Womanity Weekly,

I am writing to complain about your recent articles.

I have been a keen subscriber now for several days. On initial reading, some of your claims seemed a little extravagant, (see below) but the personal recommendations from Kim Kardashian and Matt Roberts helped to set my mind at rest.  It was therefore with no little excitement that I prepared to Change My Life and Butt.  However, two weeks later, I have yet to drop a dress size, think myself fit, find my inner wise woman and makeover my man. (Far from revitalising our relationship, he was unresponsive to  Kale Shakes and downright hostile to Cleanercise).

I have been following your instructions to the letter, but seem to be failing on every count.

For example. I understand that Stripes are the new Spots. Other people seem to find my wardrobe amusing, but despite investing in some Key Pieces, I have yet to dress myself happy. Am I perhaps wearing these the wrong way? Please advise, as I have now exhausted my living budget and am Fabulous, but also cold. And unlike your other readers, I hadn’t reckoned on the Tropical Fruit Fund required for your new year Dutch Guava Diet.

I’m not complaining about the guavas as you only require one a week.  That said, they’ve been tricky to get hold of… and despite eating the packaging, I’m still hungry. I know you told me to Starve Myself Sh-amazing, but I tried this before and I’m not convinced.  True enough, split ends were less of a concern when my hair fell out … but it’s swings and roundabouts really – what you save on shampoo you spend on life-support.

I have a few extra concerns. I tried the ‘Me First’ programme for a week but none of my friends have returned my calls and after ‘Tough Love Talks Truth’ my husband is still sleeping in the basement. I don’t want to get all sciencey as I know it’s unfeminine, but the Microdermaroller burnt off my eyebrow and I’m still a little fuzzy on how olives get you pregnant.

Please could you explain what I’m doing wrong.

Your devoted reader.

PS: I filled out your quiz, ‘Am I Boring?’ and it said yes.  What now?

  1. Oh Mrs Scrivener I knew I should have gone for a wee but I thought I’d just read the blog… now I’ve gone and literally pmsl :D x

  2. I have a feeling I will still be giggling at this for several hours to come – which could be awkward as I have to go out to a meeting this evening :-D

    Praying for your appointment too.

  3. Fabulous! It made me chortle. I feel much better about reading the Times on Saturday and thinking how terrible their New Year exercise would be to follow!

    Although my husband is currently sporting a pinny and sorting out the kitchen… So it’s not all bad!

  4. Just read your wee post, funny and so true. This is a terrible time of the year for fad diets and absolute nonsense ! well said!

    Read your previous comment about your hospital appointment; will be praying for you today. x

  5. thanks guys… and Dawn – I’m currently using the Times fitness pages as cat basket lining…maybe not what they intended, but it’s making me feel a whole lot happier
