I am such a hypocrite. There is me telling you how unkind it is that people stereotype Eastern European women, blah-blah. But in all honesty, I have no right to complain.
To be brutally honest, I myself can be (other than when I am just being really lovely):
So, I know I was saying it was naughty to generalize. But here I am, getting ready to label up some local women for your amusement.
The other night I went to this cocktail party at my local girlfriend’s place nearby. That whole night was good fun, and I met some other type of local mummies that was quite different to the ones I already knew. So, it got me thinking about various types of mummies in our wealthy commuter village.
I have been entertaining myself by mentally splitting them into a few major categories …So here it goes:
Local mummies according to Scary Azeri:
Hair: Shiny. Normally blond, but can be any colour as long as looks pampered and healthy.
Style: Boring, but expensive suburban chic. Think Boden.
Favourite music: Twinkle, twinkle little star.
Cares about: Children parties, house renovations, home deliveries.
Looks down her elegant nose at Type 2
Hair: Blond. Straight, with highlights.
Style: Glamour, with a touch of bling. Stilettos. Fake tans. French manicure and pedicure.
Personality: Girls just wanna have fun
Favourite music: Take That, Beyonce.
Cares about: Partying, looking glam, drinking.
Does not give a damn what Type 1 thinks about her.
The (extreme) church goer
Style: Plain clothing, often stained
Personality: Boring, but very kind and friendly.
Favourite music: Afraid to ask.
Cares about: God stuff. Going to church. Getting kids into the church school. Hanging out with church mates.
Does not look down at anyone: not allowed to.
Style: None. No time for that when there are global warming issues to worry about.
Favourite music: Flute
Cares about: Environment
Looks down at everyone who owns a 4-wheel drive.
And then there is the rest of them (includes my friends, of course!) who don’t quite fall into any of the above categories, but are just normal. Each in their own, unique way.
