I just couldn't wait last night to crack on with the book. I took it with me to bed and started reading. A lot of it felt familiar, and often like something I have witnessed before from a far, something I already knew but hadn't been ready to face... Could it already be touching a nerve?
I finally managed to put the book down at Chapter 4 but only at Rule# 1.
Be a “Creature Unlike Any Other”.
With that in mind I have decided that tonight should be pampering night. File my nails, put some pretty colour on them. Do a facial, give my face and my body a good scrub. Wash my hair with that special treatment that I had saved for special occasions. The full Monty of a woman's grooming. It made sense that if I felt sexy others where more likely to perceive me that way too.
But this wasn't the only reason I went through all that “painful”pampering. I have decided to trial the Rules out in the "real" world... tomorrow night!
Practice makes perfect right? And where better to practice than at a speed dating event? So, armed with all my charms, and a bit of forcefulness, I managed to convince one of my colleagues to join me. Now I just need to a) pick an outfit b) read a few more chapters to get me ready for my 17 dates tomorrow!
Wish me luck!
