still a girl
i was invited to easter dinner with my friend's family. i have known her parents for years but i wasn't sure her dad, who is ninety-two and sometimes a little confused, would remember me. he looked right at me and said, "what's with the boy haircut?" i laughed and told him i had cancer. it was my first day out in public without a scarf. my friend was worried my feelings were hurt by his question but i was thrilled--he could tell i was a girl!
