11 Weeks to Go - Meet Meara Quinn
Hi, this is Meara. I guess I'm first. After all, Never Forgotten is my story, right? So, a little about me. I like Diet Coke and classic horror films. Not classic as in Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th. Go back further. I'm talking black and white classic, Vincent Price classic. Those are the best, and I've seen them all at least a dozen times. I'm great with computers, but not so good at keeping in touch. Just ask my best friend, Kim. I hate coffee and secrets, but even more, I hate that my mom's cancer has returned.
I was told to pick a topic to talk about, and since I don't want to give my story away, I'm picking something safe, something personal. I hate my feet. Ugh. I dreaded swimming lessons as a kid. Mom insisted that I went, but as soon as the other kids saw my feet they teased me. My toes are webbed, so I had to endure years of "Hey, Duck Feet!" and "How's it going, Flipper?" It really sucked. Thankfully, swimming lessons ended, and I've been able to keep my feet relatively hidden since then. Cute sandals in the summer? Nope, not me. You'll find me in socks at almost all times, unless I'm home where no one besides Mom can see me. Yeah, my friends probably think I have athlete's foot or warts or something, but I don't care. It's better than being called out and teased for something that I can't control.
How about you? What are you most self-conscious about? C'mon you can tell me. I won't say a word. I may not like secrets, but I'm good at keeping them. ;-)
