Petite Does Not Equal Sweet

29 Sep

You know what I get a lot of? “That Mandi, she seems so sweet.” It’s a nice compliment, but as you are all well aware of by now…I’m really not that sweet. Don’t get me wrong, I am a nice person (I’m certainly not an asshole or anything) but, come on – let’s keep it real. I won’t be up for sainthood anytime soon.

I’m convinced that the reason people assume I’m “sweet” is because I’m small. Petite does not a sweetheart make. Just look at Joan Rivers. She’s tiny – and she’s a huge b.

Learn this lesson now, folks. Don’t be deceived by a person’s stature. Especially on days like today, where I’m a feisty-firecracker who seriously considered punching someone in the face.

(I decided against it, because I have better manners than that. And because I didn’t want to be arrested. But, I totally punched them in the face in my mind, and I felt much better.)

    Oh, Mandi! From the moment I met you, I had the feeling that you were not as sweet as you looked. I appreciate that in a person.
