What’s the First (and last) Thing People Remember About You? — A Tale of Reluctant Reality

12 Jul

“Everywhere I go people see me and say –What a beautiful head of hair!” And then I’m dismissed from their mind. They’ve got a way to remember you. Something to bring up if the conversation starts to lag.”

“My uncle won a blue ribbon for canoeing when he was ten. That’s the only thing people said about him after that. He was the canoe champ. Game, set, match. Even when he was old and fat and couldn’t have moved a canoe with a stick of dynamite.”

“My mom makes the best cheesecake. She never won a prize for it or anything but it is mmm-mmm good. Total strangers are always begging her to make it. And so that’s who she is. The cheesecake lady.”

“So, that’s how it is with my hair. I’ve thought about chopping it off but then I’d look plain stupid. And I’d just be known as The Girl Who Won’t Eat Broccoli.”
