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.”
