I was comparing myself to someone else, who shall remain nameless. She is always immaculately dressed, made up, and accessorized. Yesterday she wore open toed shoes and her toes were even perfectly pedicured. Of course it was like 30 degrees out so she regretted that fashion statement! I can’t even resent her for looking so perfect because she is also smart and nice.
But i do sometimes compare myself. I got dressed in about 2 minutes this morning and i think i match more of less because almost everything i own is brown or black anyway. As usual i am not wearing jewelry or makeup. I think my hair is more or less combed, but probably pretty messy.
I paint my toenails about once a year and then realize how very wrong that looks and clean the nail polish off. Actually i think the last time i painted the was a year and a half ago for an ex-boyfriend’s wedding. I needed to feel assessorized.
But on the other hand, i can draw little odd things in a way no one else can, and paint, and bead, and mix fibers up, and all sorts of other little things. It is true, however, that my cuticles look like small animals have chewed on them. In fact, i can’t rule that out. They may have.
I was thinking of having my mad scientist friend help me make a video of me doing a bead embroidery thing to show y’all. But then i looked at my cuticles. But i think maybe i will do it anyway. Artists with cuticles that look like small animals chewed on them unite.
