I was thinking that we, as women, need to get together and come up with our own system. We could use a combination of points and levels. So, you know, when you see that girl at the store with fantastic patience in spite of the customer in front of her that has unloaded 3 carts of groceries at the "express" check-out, you can give her a quick, "5 points for patience! NICE JOB!"
Or, how about that lady at the ER with two screaming (starving) children? You start talking to her and find out she has a third child who probably has a broken leg, AND her husband is gone for the weekend with his guy friends. Go ahead and give her a --"Wow! Level-UP!!"
And...I'm not quite sure what the exchange rate is here, but I'm guessing that 3 points is roughly equal to a high-five and 10 points is a head nod. So...be sure to let your husband and all your guy friends know.
PS -- Want to make the easiest speckled eggs ever?
Ice your egg shaped cookie of deliciousness.
And then ever so very lightly, sprinkle some sugar on top. Don't go overboard. Less is more. (Ha ha ha....I've always wanted to be able to say that. 2 points for me.) If you sprinkle the sugar on right away, it will sink in to the wet icing and create little speckles of color without a rough texture on top. Cool, huh?
