An Unexpected Valentine…

February 14, 2007 at 9:19 PM (Valentine's Day)

This evening, my paratransit driver said: “We know you’re beautiful because God didn’t make any ugly women.”

There it is. A fait accompli by Deity. All women are beautiful.

With apologies to anyone wary of references to a higher power.
This was the quote of the day to me. I loved it. I have not, nor do I intend to engage in overanalysis of the comment. There is no shame in admitting that sometimes we need to hear the word “beautiful” applied to us, especially if our beauty is of the non-standard sort.

Happy Valentine’s day to all those beautiful women, (and men) out there.

    🙂 Haven’t seen me offline in a bit…but…That was one of the things that has been puzzling and pleasant about our friendship.

    Beauty is subjective, but I have so many reasons that I don’t fit what I have in my head as a standard for beauty…so when you say that I get puzzled, though pleased by the sentiment.

    I agree on some attributes I’ve got that fit “beautiful”

    1. The brain
    2. The eyes
    3. What’s left of the voice after asthma and altitude have had their way with it.

    but that’s where it stops, from my perspective. Interesting.
