4 in searching through old quotes, i rediscovered the nicest thing anyone has ever said about me:

"baby girl, your legs are HOT. if i'd of had your legs, i don't think i'd of ever come in from the rain and gotten off drugs and found god. legs like that are meant to lead a life of sin."
- martha, my dear former co-worker

I love this. And do you remember what you were wearing when she said that to you? Were someone to say that to me, I'd wear that outfit every day.

ok, prepare yourself for something truly ridiculous- when i returned to memphis after maph and was working at PROUD, i wore a lot kneesocks. you know this because i emailed you about how they fell down all the time and how i kept them up with rubberbands and accordingly could not feel my legs. what i think i failed to mention is that i was wearing very brightly colored argyle kneesocks. with really, really bland outfits. like, say: white shirt, tan skirt, tan heels, flaming pink and green knee-highs. tight ones.

you also have to bear in mind that martha of the ungodly legs comment was coming into the office every day in pleather haltertops and jeans with diamonique writing on the ass. so context is key.

for the record, i don't think this was a look anyone should embrace, excepting the person playing me in the movie of my life circa 2005.

i've always loved the film noir term for legs "getaway sticks."
