GREAT story, Bonnie Priebel Blaylock!

Ha, Danna! I love your essay! Totally remember feeling the same at parties in my 20's — and even 30’s. Also, I love the liberation I’m feeling NOW since the 40’s kicked in: the decade of “I don’t have time for that noise.” Why does it take so long to nestle in to your own skin???
