Kathy Fish ~ Imagine Your Daughter Is a Cherry Red Convertible

The body is a tem­ple and Sundays are for rest. If only you worked hard. Enjoy food but don’t overindul­ge. Trim your nails and keep them scrupu­lous­ly clean. Likewise see that your chil­dren are bathed and immac­u­late­ly dressed. Do not allow your daugh­ter to go out in that slinky, skin-tight frock. Would you want her to tempt? Studies show that cher­ry red con­vert­ibles are 100 times more like­ly to be involved in traf­fic acci­dents. Notably, head-on.
