She emailed me back last night...
"I was such a cute baby- what happened?"
I thought about making a joke of it, and sending something sassy back to her in reply. Wretch and I tend to joke a lot...she has my sense of humor. So we understand each other's barbs completely.
I suddenly typed back one sentence and sent it to her. This is what I said:
"You turned into a beautiful woman."
Sometimes the simple truth is best.
