With perfection, would come boredom.
I see in you elvira, anything BUT a plain woman. I realize this wasn't a self-pity poem, but this is a subject I feel very strongly about! I agree that a good portion of it stems from the media (may they burn in hades!)
I think the true "plain" people, are those who satisfy themselves, seeking the ideal dream. And what is a dream, if not something that is unreal. For me, I would be happy with a crone (according to their standards) who had a mind that was sharp, and a good sense of humor! Much better that, then an empty shell of physical beauty. 'Cause what do we do with the things we buy that are pretty? We put them on the wall, or a shelf, nary to think of them again.
It's so cool, it's so swell, living here on Ice Planet hell!
