Of course, when I read these to my husband, he said, "Man, I wished I lived in the 50's!" Just kidding right, Frazier?
With so many women in the working world, I think some of these suggestions are just plain silly and don't stand up to the test of time. I mean touch up your make-up and be fresh looking for when your husband gets home? Yeah, right!
