I had a wonderfully amusing conversation with a friend last night who told me that, owing to her recent bad luck with men, she had been professionally encouraged "to pray and meditate for peace and joy".
Yes, that is a direct quote.
Apparently in this age of 30-something singles, we've gone past speed dating, online personals, and the recommendations of friends. And we've jumped straight to prayer and meditation. [Naturally while the 'professional' advice was dispatched to my friend, my spinsterhood is just as pronounced as hers, so I am taking the advice rather to heart too.]
Oh don't get me wrong, the advice made us laugh out loud and we both agreed that when she said "prayer and meditation", no doubt "pie and medication" would work just as well. It may not bag us boyfriends, but chances are we won't really care as much.
