Deep Thoughts: It Shows

just yesterday as we were sitting in the sun waiting for our chinese food order to be prepared, my mother recalled the story of a stranger coming up to her while our family was dining at fancy restaurant. 'your little girl is so well behaved,' was the strangers unsolicited praise. the little girl of course being me. my mother didn't take credit for my good behavior and instead replied, 'it's not me, that's just how she is.'

after a moment's consideration, she then went on to further reason... you really liked food a lot.

and we laughed. cuz it was true. i really loved food as a child. and it showed.

we can laugh about it now because i don't really love food anymore and that shows.

i do however, really love other things that i probably shouldn't love so much. and wonder if it isn't beginning to show.
