Judging books by their covers

ConnieMy sister is fashionable, skinny and cute. I'm not fashionable, not skinny and not cute. (I have my own assets, but let's not get distracted.) During high school, people would ask if we were full sisters, or real sisters.

"Look at her! I could never be friends with her!" That was the reaction of a friend recently when she saw my sister the first time. She didn't know a blessed thing about my sister, but jumped to a conclusion based on how she looked.

Now, it would be easy for me to say something about how I am much too good to judge people like that. But I know better.

For a long time, I didn't get what Gigi Belmonico was doing. The first time we met, she called me Bombshell, and signed her tweet XOXO. I mean, this is seriously over the top for me. And I jumped to some conclusions.

Consider this your reminder to look beyond the covers.


  1. I LOVE THIS!!!!!

  2. Becky THANK YOU. It is a pleasure and an honor to call you Bombshell, and even more to call you friend.XOXO Gigi Belmonico
