I Shall Never Be

Sally McGraw expresses her relief at accepting that she will never look like Sofia Vergera:

I know a lot about my body. I know its strengths and its graces, its quirks and defining traits. I know that I have strong legs and an elegant collarbone, pert breasts and dainty wrists, luxurious hair and an angular little nose. I know that I’ve got a lot going for me.

I also know that there are loads of things that I shall never be, and that many of them are considered beautiful, attractive, desirable, enviable even.

As much as men aren’t supposed to care about these things, I’ve actually been thinking about this quite a bit over the last couple days.
