Vanity thy name is …Posted: January 5, 2013
January 5th Small Stone
Checking out of Target,
The cashier says, “You remind me of Tea Leoni.”
Smiling inside and out, I say, “Thank you …
heard Kate Winslet and Meryl Streep before.”
Upon hearing Meryl her eyes open wide and she says, “Yes!”
(I really love Meryl, but don’t see it.)
I replied, “Tea’s beautiful, so I’ll take it!”
and we both laughed.
Leaving the store,
I wonder: Why does this still matter to me?
Yoga for almost three years and my ego is still attached to this?
Is it because I was raised to be pretty & nice?
Is it because I’m aging?
Is it because women are taught beauty is their core value?
Why do I still care when I know better?
