Dear diary,I met this girl today.A fine, fine girl. She had a dark scar close to her lips, just by the side. It looked like a piece of burnt metal. I liked it. You know I like things like that. I don’t have to explain but you know I just do. She had a nose that gave me the idea that it could raise it’s own pair of eyebrows if it had one. So captivating. Don’t judge me for my taste dear diary. You know me too well already. And the eyes, those eyes going up slowly like they could lift a building up with just a wink and throw it down mercilessly. Yes, her face looked like a carving of Independence-I-dare-you-to-say-it-isn’t, and that ,dear diary is killing. But in the good way…uhm yea, I was attracted to her.
And she was witty! Lawd! That mind could bend water and she could blind you with her smile. Those teeth on point. Uhm yea. On point…
..”.and that’s why a woman should be able to do what she wants with her body…”
You know, I can’t say it felt like cold water all over my back. Maybe like screws being fastened into my back. It felt tense , taut, I couldn’t breathe. No , maybe I am exaggerating. I could. It’s just I liked her.
..”.and so she should abort the child if she wants to. No child should be allowed to come into the world with diseases. That’s selfish of parents to do that.”
You know, dear diary, I am glad to be alive. I am glad we all are, even you, just a piece of paper, but isn’t life pretty? I mean there is hope , isn’t there?
.”..and think of the medical expenses and the care such a child would need. It would ruin the career and life of the couple”
Well, she called it “it”. She had a lovely neck too, dear diary.
…and that is one reason I am for the right to choose what to do with your body. It is her body afterall…
Well, I had to leave, dear diary. Fine girl or not, I cannot. And I will keep looking for my missing rib , dear diary. We will have children. And we will love every broken limb if we have to, we will care for every extra chromosome because life is precious dear diary and no one has the right to end it because of a defect.
