Medusa Morning

Magpie Tales: #24



Emerging, satisfied, from the warm, moist cocoon of her bed - and leaving him to watch her go, she peers into the mirror in the hall.

She: My God! Look at my hair! What a mess!

He: You look beautiful.

She (secretly smiling): When I look into my mirror I know you are lying.

He: I'm not lying. You are looking at yourself through the eyes of a beauty pageant judge. I'm looking at the real you.

She: Then the real me must be Medusa!

He: No doubt. You can certainly turn a man to stone.

LOVE this! One---that you wrote something honest and tasteful and two---that you captured how we women are so hard on ourselves. We don't see the beauty we have. Thanks for this. Thanks also for the kind words on my blog! :o)
