Columnists: Painting myself into the picture
It wasn't a flattering picture of me.
I wore a shapeless outfit cut from old newspapers. My stick-thin legs stuck out the bottom of my skirt, and I balanced on lopsided high heels, feet turned out to the sides.
And on top of it all, my head looked too small for my body.
But coming across as overly flattering was never a big concern in my life. As long as I get my point across, that's what matters.
Or at least that's what I keep telling myself.
