NOTICED! Part 1: Growing Up

The autobiography of a woman; by Waldorfia

October 15, 2011

It has been said that there are two ways for a woman to clone herself. The first is through sexual activity. The second method is to see her reflection in a mirror. Over the years neither of these two methods has been very kind to me.

As a young girl my father gave me some sage advice. “Fool’s names and fool’s faces are always seen in public places.”

He attributed the advice to one or another founding father. I attributed it more to an invention of his mind. My father was beginning to realize that I loved to be seen.

    There is a third way a woman clones herself that stems from low self esteem. She will look to and emulate people who are who she wants to be. In the process she never learns who she really is. (Speaking from experience). *wave to you and the Mrs.
