That’s what I like about you.

Following along from yesterdays discussion about our flaws, I thought I would open up a dialogue about something that is a lot more difficult to admit to.

Our good points.

I think it goes against our very nature to admit that we do have our good points. I am not talking about kindness or generosity. I am being purely shallow when I talk about physicality. Do you remember growing up, and calling people “Up yourself” if you admitted that you thought you were pretty hot? Nowadays with social media and selfies up the yahoo, it is perfectly acceptable to whack a photo of yourself in a bikini, make some adjustments, add a filter, press publish and wait for the faceless commenters to let you know just how hot you are.

And I think we all know who is to blame for this trend….

But what about yourself? What do you like? For me, I have good teeth. They are straighter than a fast trip to the dunny after a dodgy curry. It is just a shame that they have little lips to frame them.

Check out my display of early onset vagina neck in this shot!

I was lucky enough to acquire a good set of gnashers without the benefit of braces. A genetic lottery win in my books!

Speaking of teeth, let me tell you about an interesting conversation I had with the very wise Dr. Woog this week.

It all stemmed from the fact that I married a man who did not produce canine teeth after losing his baby teeth. The man might be smart, kind and have great taste in chicks, but his teeth? Not so great. So it concerned me when my son Jack has taken up this genetic trait from his father, and has not grown canines of his own.

“Why is this happening?” I asked the good Doc.

He explained that it is evolution at work. You see, back in the day we required this pointy little set of teeth to help tear raw flesh from bones of carcasses. You know, like back in the palaeolithic era. And for the past several hundred years, our method of hunting and gathering food has changed. A large population of us now drink all of our food in the way of green smoothies, bone broths and protein shakes.

Which leads me to believe that in a thousand years from now, there will be no such thing as dentists.

But back to my original question…

What is your best feature?
