Coming to terms with girliness

When I paint my fingernails, my life changes. Suddenly I am very aware of everything that I touch. Am I putting my nail polish in danger? Am I putting the objects I touch in danger of a scrape from my strong, powerful nails? Whose hands are these, anyway? I don't know if it makes me feel more girly, but it makes me more aware of my sense of touch and perhaps a little daintier in my manner of touching things.

Never mind; they're pink. I am girly. I struggled for years against girliness, but now I'm always wearing pink and skirts and high heels... I think the battle is lost. I guess it's okay to be a girl sometimes.

what made you suddenly (or slowly) lose your anti-girliness?

I think it was the time I bought pink knee socks and then had to buy clothes to go with them!

I joined a sorority to let out my inner-girliness. It was warmer than wearing skirts.

I let my high school girlfriend paint my toenails pink once. I worked at a day camp. We took the kids to a swimming pool four days a week. I got made fun of. A lot. By 5-year-olds.
