I’m a girly girl who has always loved playing dress-up.  I’m a wannabe jock who would have loved to run the mile at the Olympics. The first compulsion has been satisfied with a dreamy, big-girl closet filled with my favorite objets d’art that would make any fashionista swoon.  The second, with regular long distance runs and occasional competitive races.  A contradiction?  Perhaps.  But I believe it’s our contradictions that make us recognizable to each other, not to mention keep us and life more interesting.

So, the next time someone says to you, “You’re such a contradition!” simply smile and say,

Thank you. Thank you very much.”
