August 4 is Single Working Women’s Day, and as a single working woman I want to celebrate by sharing some of the wisdom I have gleaned from my favorite single working women from books, movies and television
1. Bridget Jones, from Bridget Jones’s Diary—It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces. After you read it, check out the movie too.
4. Liz Lemon, from 30 Rock—Say yes to love, yes to life, yes to staying in more…and working on your night cheese.
6. Erin Brockovich, from Erin Brockovich—All you need is spirit, determination and—boobs.
9. Mary Richards, from The Mary Tyler Moore Show—You have to have spunk…even if your boss hates spunk.
So here’s to the all the single, spunky, lucky, quirky working women in books, movies and television who have taught us so many things about how to live life. You can find all these single ladies at your local Half Price Books. And don’t forget to celebrate the single working women in your life! Now everyone sing: “Workin’ on my night cheese…”
