hello, Polly.



Consider me... distracted.

There's dirt under my fingernails for the first time in years,
and my boots are at the bottom of the stairs, dusted with mud.
I had to roll up my favorite jeans to keep the hems from dragging in the field.
And I smell, faintly, of horse and saddle oil.
Also, I found a carrot in my pocket earlier. 
It was happy to see me.

One of my defining characteristics is adaptability. 
Looks like I'm a cowgirl again, at least when 
I put on the right costume and take out my dangly earrings.

It feels good, getting a little dirty.
