Yesterday my boss asked me to decorate the front window of herbusiness with hearts for Valentine's Day. I'm not much of an artist but I thought, they're just hearts, even a child can draw a heart. I got my red, pink, and white paints ready and started to make outlines to be colored in later. I went across half of the window before my boss stopped me and said "What are those supposed to be?" "Hearts" I said. She said they were the sickliest hearts she has ever seen. I stepped back to admire my work and I thought they looked great! She drew HER version of a heart on the window and I could see there was a difference. Hers were rounder and fatter and mine were slimmer, shapelier and I thought...SEXIER. Try as I might, I couldn't make them as full as hers, They may have started out fat, but the more I made, the slimmer they got. I guess after over 5 years of maintenance, my life has really "thinned" out.....in every way. I view things differently, which is a good thing for me, not so much for my decorating. I can't wait to see how my St. Patrick Day shamrocks turn out. But then, I don't think my boss will ask me to paint anymore windows!
