Dear Mr. Melissa Blake:
Not to get too graphic (I’m a lady, remember?), but what did you think of my legs the first time you saw them? Is that a horribly weird question? But I think it’s something you should be aware of ahead of time. I don’t want to spring those little puppies on you without warning because honestly, that could possibly give you a heart attack. OK, maybe I’m being a little dramatic here for effect (you’ll learn to love my charming hysterics, Sweetpea; I promise), but it’s true: Like the rest of my body, my legs are rather unique. They’re asymmetrical. The right is slightly longer than the left. Oh, and did I mention that there’s a nice maze of scars running up and down them?
And you know the greatest part, the part I hope you find the greatest too? I LOVE THEM!! I always feel sorry for people who have perfectly symmentrical legs, which is just about every person I’ve ever met in my entire life.
I just thought I should warn you, seeing as how I anticipate I’ll care for you a great deal in the future. And, well, these legs are pretty special to me, so I hope they’re special to you too. They’re a constant reminder of everything I’ve been through and how far I’ve come. They’re part of me, and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you. Until we meet…
