Saturday: The Beholder
In light of a strange experience I had a the doctor's office this week, I thought this wisdom from the fabulous Miss Piggy was just perfect for today. . .

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.”-Miss Piggy

People can be insensitive. I remember a time at work (David and I still refer to it from time to time and laugh) when I was using a knife that was not sharp enough. We have to cut thick plastic straps that band out newspapers and magazines. I kept pulling and pulling on the band with the knife and it finally cut through. But only to pull the knife up to my face right between my eyes and cut myself. It was bleeding but not an extremely deep cut. But it did bruise and leave a permanent scar. One of the guys, that is actually a very good friend of mine, said to me several days later, "well, at least you are married and have someone already" I was some kind of freak now that no one would want!!! I could have just punched him. Really if you don't get up close to me and look, you can't even see it. I was just thankful that I did not hit my eye instead of worrying about my looks. All I can say is "You Go, Miss Piggy!"

Posted more musings about today ... and a page of my confessions journal, if you want a peek. :D
