My story: Malibu Barbie; Roller Skates; Concert Tickets; Fuzzy Socks & Tulips

I tried to find a picture of roller skates for my story, but these tulips will have to do.My story today — Malibu Barbie; Roller Skates; Concert Tickets; Fuzzy Socks and Tulips on a Rainy Day — is a story about lists.

We all keep those secret lists in our heads: Of things we’ve done, things we’d like to do, the things we have to do and all the things we are afraid to try. Some lists are easy to share, but other times it’s hard to share those secrets — even with the people who know us best.

I almost told her then. About Michael. About 14 months of my life wasted. About the boxes in the basement that held all my things. His things. Our things.
Instead, I said, “What’s really wrong, Betty?”

What is your top 5 list of things you want the world to know about you?

That’s my story. Tell me one of yours.
