06:00 pm: something corny I've learned
About 30 years ago, when I was in junior high, one of my favorite books was Hold Fast to Your Dreams, by Catherine Blanton. It's about an African-American high school student, a dancer who moves from the city (I don't remember which) to the Southwest, and the challenges she faces. Good book.

Anyway, the protagonist's father watches her perform and says something like "I had to shut my eyes sometimes, because you were too beautiful." I thought the line was wicked lame. Who shuts their eyes at a dance performance, fer pete's sake?

But now sometimes I shut my eyes, because Teddy is too beautiful.

Current Mood: lovedin love
