What is your favorite?

I remember as a teen waking up very early before school to hot roll my hair... yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, what on earth are hot rollers? They are incredibly hot torture devices girls of the eighties used to use to beautify ourselves. I would sweat my butt off sitting in front of a fan waiting for my hair to set hoping my makeup didn't melt in the process.
Vanity? I suppose. Vanity seems to die along with age, or is it just me? Don't get me wrong, I still try to look nice. Perhaps it was the cancer and being bald. I am not sure but somewhere I have mellowed out a bit and don't mind so much what others think.
Our society puts so much pressure on us to conform to look a certain way. It is sad really.
I recently took some medicine to reduce water gain in my ankles. Unfortunately, it absorbed the fluid that had been residing in my breast which had a quadrant of tissue removed from breast cancer seven years ago. Now I am totally lopsided and there is over a two cup size difference.
No worries right? I am alive. I am healthy.
Until bathing suit season comes...
See? Society. I am blessed. Period. Plain and simple. It doesn't matter to me and no one else should be looking to notice anyhow.

that squares are here and there,
and if they keep an eye out,
then stripes are everywhere.

Alphabet Everywhere is a fun, creative book. The one negative aspect, the lack of an example, actual letter would pose difficulty with beginner readers. I would suggest this book for a moderate level or advanced youngsters to encourage letter recognition through artistic mediums in an interactive activity.
