How I Improved The 7 Wonders Of The World

It seems there was a campaign to pick The NEW Seven Wonders of the World – supposedly chosen by “people of the World”.  In July 2007 it was announced that The Great Wall of China, Petra, The Statue of Christ Redeemer, Machu Picchu, Chichen Itza, The Colosseum and The Taj Mahal were chosen as the new Seven Wonders of the World.

No one asked my opinion.

Where was I when the world was asked this question?  I must have been in my room jumping up and down, rolling around, trying to get a pair of panty hose past my ass.  Never interrupt a woman when she is doing this dance – and by God – do not watch.  It might make you nauseous.

I, being the opinionated brilliant woman that I am, have a list of my own “Seven Wonders” to submit.  Too bad the competition is over, because I drink firmly believe my seven should be displayed at The Smithsonian for all to marvel and photograph.

I say The Seven Wonders are:

1.  A clean space under my son’s bed.

2.  A man who will stop and ask directions when he is lost.

3.  A woman in menopause who is under 15% body fat (Ok maybe this one could also go on my Freak of Nature list).

4.  A healthy meal at McDonalds.

5.  Parents who claim they sleep through the night.

6.  A child who can find their own shoes.

7.  A woman who enjoys doing laundry.

Who needs places like the Grand Canyon when you could stare at a man who will admit he is lost, or photograph a couple with five kids, who get at least eight hours a sleep a night?  They could be the symbol of hope for all mankind.  Wow, then there is really a Yellow Brick Road, and Santa Claus really does fly through the sky.

And my ass looks like a 20 year old’s.

Really, I’d just settle for a GPS system to help my son find his shoes.

Until next time-

    I didn’t get the questionnaire for exactly the same reason (what can I say, I’m bored without internet connection at home).

    My house should probably be in your list, if only for my laundry-doing ability.

    “A healthy meal at McDonalds”? That’s not fair, Readhead – your post was about the Wonders of the World, not Pipe Dreams.
