Teach your daughters to be intimidating in a pretty dress
Just take a look at most of the men’s dating profiles, and you will see that practically all of them want to meet and date a woman who has “class.” Indeed, being called “classy” is an ultimate compliment to a woman.

In the rapid fire round of questions at the end of the taped interview, President Obama admitted to being an intense trash talker during the basketball games he hosts at the White House, but also credits the playful banter as the reason why he feels his opponents don't just let him win.

(These could be names of horses in the Kentucky Derby.) The packaging came with instructions not unlike Singer dress patterns, with line drawings on how to put one on.
