she had sparkles on her ear

May 14, 2010

Today the sun peeked out for a moment. Just a moment. It’s been raining and storming a lot in true Kansas fashion. All big and beautiful and a little wild. I was driving home from work on Monday during one of the storms when my boyfriend called me to make sure I was okay. I had trouble talking because the persistent and vengeful lightning seemed to be aiming directly at my gold tooth (cap, really, but a gold tooth sounds more dramatic) and my head felt full and swimmy.¬† Does your body freak out during electrical storms?

Lately, I’ve been¬† kind of sweating about my age. Feeling time ticking loudly. Then I remembered seeing this lady and thought that there’s plenty of time and ways to be a badass. Let’s make a pledge, friends. Everyone do one thing this weekend that makes them feel good and tell me what it is. I’ll do the same. Cheers!

O, muse!

Happy Birthday, Kansas! What a sweet, sweet place you’ve been to me. I’m sorry for all the times I not-so-secretly cursed at you for that which I thought you lacked. Truly, you are a dynamic state and one which provokes such strong feelings from many.
