as a kid, whenever anything scary happened (usually at the doctor's office and involving either the ear vacuum or that blood-sucking, finger-raper gun), my dad's automatic response was, caroline, be a man.
and i'd look at look him through my tears and wail, i caaaaaaaaan't. i'm just a little girl.
now, like it or not, i'm a big girl. i went to a sex seminar last night and the lady doc this afternoon, so i was feeling terribly YEAH, GIRL POWER!!! traipsing home through the snow.
the email awaiting me there?
