Shallow thoughts...

For some people, it's their eyes. For others, it's their smile.

The only visible evidence of my accident today is a right eye that blinks a little less frequently than the left and that doesn't open quite as wide when I'm tired. And I certainly could have benefited from braces back in junior high.

No, for me, my best physical trait is my smallness. My thinness. When I realized that, or at least gave voice to that thought in my head, I shrunk a little more: my best physical trait is the lack of something; the absence of something.
