I watched her jingle her bracelet that was made from rubber bands and safety pins as she waved to every other preschool girl in the room. She was working it, I tell you what.
Then when my boy #4 came down the aisle holding a tray full of little cups of water, she pinched one up and slurped louder than any beauty queen has a right to.
And I thought to myself, "I would like to be her. To be unashamed and proud of my feminine wiles. To wave to all my friends with my sparkly jewelry, and then to slurp up the living water."
Thanks for the reminder, Scarlett.
