The Word On The Street’s Book Club discussion of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Better continues!
This week, book club leader Michele has questions based on pages 127 – 178.
Part 4: (pages 179 – 231)
“S-E-X-X-X and Love” and “Our Modern World”
3rd Section: (pg 127-178)
“On Female Friendship, aka Everything” and “Fashion”
1. While we are now separated by continents and oceans, I met my first friend on the first day of junior kindergarten 30 years ago, and we still amazingly keep in touch and send birthday gifts to each other every year. Can you remember the very first female friendship you had? When/how did you meet, and do you still keep in touch?
2. It can be said that female friendships are more complex and multi-layered, while guys and their male friendships tend to be more casual. Do you agree, or disagree – and why do you think that is?
3. Heisey opens the Fashion section with a funny, yet poignant, look at “dressing to flatter your body”. I’m sure many of us are guilty of doing just that, but she brings up a good point on why we follow that and why some people choose to just wear what they would like to wear. Do you agree with that sentiment, and do you follow that way of thinking when it comes to your wardrobe?
4. In one of the many humourous quizzes within the book, Heisey identifies some of the fashion mistakes of her past. Hindsight is 20/20, so looking back, what are some of your fashion faux pas?
