My boyfriend never usually buys me gifts. I mean, the pleasure of his company is more than enough for me, I am told. So imagine my surprise when, one valentine's day morning, I awoke to find a beautiful purple box perched on my pillow! Well, I LOVE the colour purple, so you can imagine my overwhelming joy at recieving such a gift! My trembling, perfectly manicured and weak fingers were ineffective at opening the box, so you can imagine the building excitement I endured waiting for my boyfiend to get home and open it for me.
Well let me tell you it was worth the wait! The soft grip, feminine colour and lightweight material finally allowed me to experience something I had only dreamed of, as I would watch countless men in a graceful and effortless show of gliding pen on paper. Although MY markings can do little more than make the "X" I use to sign my name, I feel like I'm part of some strange new world, full of possiblilities! I feel I can be anything I want, like....a waitress.......
But I dream.
For now, I use my downtime between looking pretty and laughing at my boyfriend's jokes to practise my craft, and one day show the world what women can do when they put their mind to it. Dare to think big, girls! Our time has come.
