"I love my chocolate eyes. They're awesome!" she said. She was so clearly excited about her own beauty, which makes me very happy, to say the least.
I thought of this later in the day when I overheard the following exchange between a man and a woman:
Woman: Oh, I see your friend dropped off those pictures of your daughters from last Halloween.
Man: Yeah. They're ugly, ugly children, aren't they?
It was his idea of a joke. There are some things in life I will never understand, and this is one of them.
