Ugly to the Bone
"Beauty is only skin deep but ugly is to the bone."
I saw a spot on television today about the latest reality show where an ensemble of "beautiful" people compete in a coed pageant-of sorts. There are sound bytes of "I'm gorgeous!" and "Everybody wants me, cuz I'm soooo hot!" The gimmick to this show is that they are supposedly being judged on their inner beauty rather than physical aesthetics.
How groundbreaking. (Yawn.)
It seems to me that society generally doesn't care one bit about the content of our hearts but measures a person more by her cup size or the bulge of his-uh-wallet. Am I the only on who thinks this is a bunch of crap?
When I meet a new person, I may unconsciously take note of certain bodily characteristics, but I focus on that person's actions. I like to ask folks offbeat questions and find that not only it breaks the ice, but tells me alot about how they see themselves in the world. I find that far more interesting and have made wonderful friends with whom I can discuss anything and everything.
I don't think of myself as beautiful and even if I did, I had nothing to do with that. I look more and more like my birth mother Beverly every single day..Her genes are pretty strong!
I like to wear makeup and feminine acrouments but when ******** down to flesh and bone, all that matters is that I consider myself a good and decent human who strives to be a better person everyday.
Isn't that what it's really all about?
