I did not stay up late enough last night to watch David Letterman call Sarah Palin a slutty flight attendant, but I did watch the video.
I try to be politically agnostic here at Chubby Mommy Running Club, but the phrase Slutty Flight Attendant is a good one. It conjures up so many images, most of which involve false eyelashes, red lipstick, short skirts, and well, maybe a former beauty pageant contestant or two, if we're honest.
In fairness to Mrs. Palin, I think she'd be a really good flight attendant, because she seems friendly, engaging, and like the type who would make sure your coffee is hot. She'd probably even slip you an extra bag of peanuts.
But modern flight attendants wear long skirts or pants and long sleeved blazers with silly scarves tied around their necks to block any possible cleavage overflow. Seriously, they're pretty conservative these days.
If I had the body and confidence to wear the outfit pictured above, I'd go for it in a heartbeat. I mean, the boots alone would be enough for me to take the job. I'd get to keep the boots even if I quit, right?
I'd have to be careful not to spill hot coffee on my bare legs, though, or I'd probably cuss up a storm. Wait, maybe that would be okay?
