I finally have seen my essay in the July issue of Marie Claire! First of all, I must thank my wonderful editor, Abby Pesta, for taking such good care of me. Secondly, I must call my dermatologist for Restylane and/or a face lift. I’m a little traumatized by the photos, especially since I haven’t seen a non-smiling picture of myself in many years. Complicating matters is that in my mind’s eye, I’m 26 years old and look like Linda Evangelista. My mind’s eye is blind.
You’re going to have to buy the magazine to read the whole story because I don’t think Marie Claire would appreciate my giving it away here. But you won’t regret spending the money because the cover story on Sex and the City is excellent, and I say that even though I’m bitter that the SATC chicks got lots of awesome Photoshopping while I got zilch. If you like SATC — the show and/or the movie — you really will want to get this issue. It’s on the newsstand Tuesday and subscribers already have it.
