His name was Keith Bridden, with eyes so blue that they sparkled and thick, dark hair. I watched him for days while I worked as a cocktail waitress, trying not to be too obvious, but noticed he was smiling at me every time I looked his way. He'd noticed, and my heart skipped a beat in my chest just imagining what it would be like to touch him.
The anticipation was the best part of my mother's weekly surprise for us. She would bake a cake, not just a cake, but a special cake each Saturday afternoon for my sister and myself. Oh, they were marvelous. One week she baked a cake with M & Ms stuck on the frosting, and one week she made a cake with a big clown on the top, but there was one cake that stole my heart. It was a Hershey's cocoa cake recipe from the can, and the icing recipe was there as well. It was so rich and chocolaty, but the thing that made it so special were the peppermint candies she would crush and put on top of the cake.
Mr. Trump, this is the second letter I have written to you, and I doubt you will ever see either one of them, but I will feel better for getting my feelings out.
Patty watched as Sally skipped down the path, and patiently waited for her to get closer. When she did, Patty got up and began skipping next to her. Sally had thick curly hair so her face was not seen very well, and because Patty was curious about the day, she asked Sally what color glasses she was wearing. Sally slowed down and turned toward Patty with a big smile on her face. I am wearing rose colored glasses today, Patty, so take a big breath and smile! Then Sally went skipping along on her own way while Patty stood there and tried to figure out what Sally had meant.
We all want to look our best, flaunting thick hair, clear, pore-free skin without any wrinkles. We long to have thin hips, a small waist and breasts that are high and firm. But, unfortunately most of us are stuck with a less than perfect face and body. Time limitations, work, family obligations, and little time for ourselves causes stress which shows on our faces and bodies. We get bellies in the front and big, round butts in the back from too much sitting in a day. Cellulite begins to form everywhere and it is hard to get rid of once it's there. The skin on our faces is sallow and drawn. Lines begin to form around our eyes and mouth. Either dark circles or puffiness starts to blur the beauty that was once your eyes.
