Today a gal I work with said something to me that no one has ever said before. I wore a dress to work, which is nigh unheard of for me. Still, I bought the dress to present to politicians in, so figured it would work for execs. (It did, by the way. I didn't get NEAR the interruptions and debate of the guy before me.) Outside the meeting room, one of the gals I work with just shook her head and said she'd never be skinny enough to pull off a clingy dress like mine.

Skinny. No one has ever called me skinny before. It was a magic moment. I mean, I'm not skinny by any stretch of the fashion definition, but someone said it enviously. And I was glad.

Now, I have envy too. One of the new gals on my hockey team had stripped down in the locker room, and this girl had GUNS. I mean, upper arm and shoulder development that was as ripped as Jess'. (Which is saying something, if one doesn't know Jess. Because Jess is made of awesome Judo goodness.)

I want them. I know how to get them. I just need to do it.

Envy can be a very powerful motivator.

You have a skinny butt. I envy that. I will never have one. (I didn't when I was teenage skinny.)

Heh - by sheer coincidence, the Jess I know is also astonishingly ripped. She is tiny, and a former world power lifting champion. She can pick me up and throw me around without thinking about it. (And does.)

D'you think it's all in the name?

Clearly that must be it. I shall change my name to Jessica. And my patronym to Rabbit.
