Harry: There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance.

Sally: Which one am I?

Harry: You're the worst kind. You're high maintenance but you think you're low maintenance.

(From the best movie ever, When Harry Met Sally)

I'll admit it: I have been accused by several people of being high maintenance.

Why? Well, Jaime thinks I am high maintenance because it takes me an hour to get ready in the mornings. Seriously? An hour to shower, straighten my hair, dress, put on makeup, maybe get a latte, and make it to the office? Dang...I can't really condense my morning any more than that!

I would like to argue that I am not high maintenance by sharing the following facts about myself:

1. I will eat food that has fallen on a reasonably clean floor.
2. I drink Diet Coke from the can. I don't need a fancy cup of ice with it.
3. I don't need to put lip gloss on after every meal, and I don't always have a perfect pedicure.
4. I am very easily amused; tell me a couple of Laffy Taffy jokes. No pretension here.
5. There is nothing in my room that is embroidered with the word "Princess" on it.
6. My purse weighs less than five pounds.
7. I am usually punctual. High-maintenance girls do not care about others' time.

So, I have to ask the question again...what makes me high maintenance?!

You are not high maintenance, no way. To fit everything you do into an hour is amazing. Boy's just don't get it becasue they're dirty and just roll out of bed and drive to wherever their going. That's also why girls smell better than boys.
