"I'd much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they are the first to be rescued off of sinking ships."


{Gilda Radner}






I'm glad to be a woman.


Or close to it.


Almost old enough.


But how nice it is to be able to watch James Dean movies and sigh.


And to love the mind-qualities of Atticus Finch.


And to admire the Situation's guns, for crying out loud.


How nice it is to put on makeup when no one but my family is going to see me.


To put on my navy blue power suit and feel like I can take on the world.


And to admire a sparkly pair of shoes at Neiman Marcus.


And to like Captain America's hair.


And to put on red lipstick.


Just for the heck of it.


Girls can do that.


I love it.
