Vanity, Thy Name Is Woman

Nov 12, 2007

I'm in California at a national sales meeting, and one of my girlfriends (a colleague) asks me what I do to get such thin thighs.

"Your thighs don't touch when you walk. What are you doing?"

I don't think I've ever been so flattered, so I stared at her with my mouth hanging open. What is one supposed to say? The image in my mirror tells me a completely different story, but it's a story of starvation and denial that still haunts me after nearly two decades.

I wonder if I'll ever be able see the truth in the mirror. I wonder if any woman ever can.
