    We Shall See

    I was standing outside with my husband and he interrupts the conversation to say, "I love you so much."  I asked "Why exactly?", just to mess with him. He responded with, "You are just completely perfect."

    Complexion

    For many women, the ultimate way to be complimented, is have it done, not by a man, but by a woman! (because they are our competition!) So just a bit ago, one of the next door female pharmacisists was staring at my face while I was talking to her. I'm getting nervous...

    I was foolishly trying to step through the snow and ice in my heels yesterday.   I only wanted to cross the street so I didn't bother putting on my more practical shoes.  As I'm just about to step off the curb a young man comes up behind me and says "I feel...
