I have decided on the spur of the moment to join in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Click here for Talli Roland's list of bloggers who have joined in the madness.
I am going to write an A-Z on female virtues and how despite our best efforts we can't sustain them and other random childhood and current anecdotes.
I apologise in advance if I don't do the full blogging rounds of commenting, I'm doing it for a little challenge to myself mainly.
A is for Adorable
When I was about six, a lovely neighbour in my Dublin street called me 'adorable'.
She did wear very thick glasses but 'adorable' still counts even if you are just a blur.
She also told me that I looked like a film star.
I was thinking one of the girls out of the Little House on the Prairie, maybe the blind one who was also beautiful and good?
A boy on my street overheard the 'film star' remark and replied:
'Lassie is the only film star you bleedin' look like!!'
My state of adorable-ness lasted for about five seconds.
And yes, if you are wondering, there was minor violence involved, but a limp adds a certain attractiveness to a boy, n'est ce pas?
Tune in tomorrow for 'B'!!
