“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.”
- Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene

My best friend? No, she would rather I could laugh, eat and shop with her.
My gran? No. She would rather I had a slice of her delicious homemade cake.
My brother? No. He would rather I don’t have panic attacks over calories.
Me? No. I would rather strong legs. Legs to carry me through life. Legs that will run marathons. Legs that will climb stairs. Legs that enable me to hold my head up high. Legs.
This is a beautiful take on the whole thigh gap obsession.

This reminds me of that Taylor Mali poem “Why Falling in Love is Like Owning a Dog” :3. Woof, woof.
This boy at Target asked if I would hold his hand because his ex girlfriend just walked in with a new guy, so naturally I felt bad and held his hand while strolling around Target for a bit. Then it donned on me, with no other couple in sight, that was the best damn pick up line ever pulled.
