It was my
observation that the waifishly pretty girls of the world got
everything, including sympathy, it seemed, and mints, and that if you
were ugly you always had to prove that you didn't have an ugly
personality to match and so one must develop charm and an easy pleasant
interest in others, but I had decided a long time ago that this was too
much trouble to go through with every idiot that came along.
