the perfect body initiative.

inspired by regina spektor's song, folding chairs,

i've got a perfect body, but sometimes i forget, i've got a perfect body 'cause my eyelashes catch my sweat, yes they do.

i asked,

why is your body perfect?

and you answered. boy, did you answer.

and because your answers were so perfect i decided to create "the perfect body initiative"-- that sounds important doesn't it? well... i think this is important.

each day i'm going to feature a reader's response. and i will create an icon on my sidebar that will take you to those responses. 

the purpose of the perfect body initiative is to redefine what it means to have a "perfect" body.

so here we go,





My shoulders... because they allow me to hold my head high.

wow. i couldn't imagine a better one to kick this thing off with.

yes, they do.


two days ago i thanked regina for this reminder,

i've got a perfect body, but sometimes i forget.

and then taza reminded me (as taza tends to do) that the in full, the quote is:

i've got a perfect body, but sometimes i forget, i've got a perfect body 'cause my eyelashes catch my sweat, yes they do.

of course, i thought. 

of course (my favorite response). 

these bodies of ours do amazing things each and every day. so...this is my charge to you:

why is your body perfect?

mine?

well.

because my feet get me from one end of the tunnel to the next. 

and about a million other reasons. but that's the one i'll give. 

so now you. 

i want to know. 

and then i want to make a list.

and then we'll have begun the revolution without even realizing it.

what are you waiting for--why are you still reading this?

go.



ps: according to glamour magazine,
animal prints are making a
comeback (when did they ever
go away?) and so i've decided
to wear my zebra shoes
all the time, since i think i'm finally
coming back to myself.
yes, i am.
