from ‘Beautiful Lies’ by Lisa Unger

I’ll tell you something about myself. I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn’t impress me. Smart impresses me; strength impresses me. But most of all, I’m impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well

Stood Up

I got stood up today. Twice. Sandy and Max never did make it to the park for our playdate. Fair enough, kids are tricky. Just wish she’d called. For whatever reason, I don’t have her phone number(it must be on the phone that had the incident with the washing machine)
