A Monday Olio
I saw this and wanted to share it with you…
So? What were your first four adjectives?
Mine were ‘happy, patient, peaceful, elegant’. Although I am happy (for the most part) and patient (sometimes ridiculously so) and am a real believer in peace, I am affirmatively not elegant. No one under 5′ is elegant – trust me. In truth, there are no adjectives for vertically challenged women that don’t suggest the plight of a retired cheerleader – ‘perky, cute, spunky’…You may get a ‘pretty’ thrown in on occasion (though that’s usually from a relative). But of all the magnificent descriptives out there, we don’t get the $.75 words – ever. Where did I put my pompoms?
Lest you think this really bothers me though, let’s remember that I’m ‘happy’ and ‘peaceful’ too. What I was really more interested in was how I arrived at these four adjectives. I’m really very linear. For someone who typically finds the most circuitous path to get from Point A to Point B, I was pleased that my route was so direct. True, I did focus on the right, and I tend to lean to the left – but no one said this was a precise exercise.
I hope you have fun with this and don’t take any of it to heart. Unless of course you are over 5′ and you find ‘elegant’ – in which case, it’s a completely accurate assessment.
