1. I hate limp lettuce. My sister (a home economics teacher) told me to bathe the lettuce in ice water to crisp it up. The problem: sorting the ice out of the drained lettuce. Better: put the ice water in the bottom of your spinner and cut the lettuce in the strainer portion of the spinner. Set the strainer section into the ice bath, with the ice imprisoned below the strainer. When the lettuce is nice and crisp, lift the strainer out of the water, dump the water and spin!
2. I dislike seeing mascara smudges under/around the eyes. Waterproof mascara is the answer. The only answer.
3. I'm offended by lipstick marks on cups, glasses, clothing, cheeks or any other part of a victim's body. Simple solution: use 16 hour lipstick. My favorite is Cover Girl. I pick from among a multitude of colors that remain on my lips.
Next, I'd like to list simple advice for how to market my books. So far, the list looks like this:
If only I could fill in THESE blanks!
