My Achilles Heel

I've determined that I could never be a super hero. Even given my super powers of being incredibly tactful, parrellel parking, and having very well manicured hands (I think it results from Dad always remarking that I could be hand model). Thing is, it seems that all super heroes have their weaknesses that they have to keep under wraps in order to maintain their powers. I, on the other hand, despite being the princess of power, have this terrible urge to constantly reveal my weaknesses to others. I am a little too open to be quite frank. I can be quiet, but once you get me going, it's like pandora's box....well in that I let everything out, I'd like to think that I'm slightly less scary than dear ol pandora.

I recall speaking in church in Vegas some time ago, and my dear friend Julian giving me a hug afterwards and remarking that I am "So real". I never thought much of it, but have decided that it just might be true. I suppose life could be easier if I tried to put on a little bit of a front. But naw. I am constantly working on the areas in which I am lacking, but feel no need to pretend to be something I'm not. Which is perhaps why I've always had this aversion to the whole dating scene. I'm getting set up with my dear friend's friend that was sitting on the opposite end of the table last night at her birthday dinner at the Spaghetti Factory. Sigh.
