You should be reading a Grace Paley story. I like "Two Short, Sad Stories" and "The Opera Singer", but my creative writing teacher from last year (seems like forever ago) swears that her favorite story is "The Pale Pink Roast". But now that I think of it - how can you possibly choose?
I love this photo because of the contrast between her face and everyone else's faces. Just look at it! Her expression is saying, "Nope! Mhm-mm... not saying a thing!" And she's just casually looking off to the side, like, "Next". And I LOVE the magnifying glass she has attached to her necklace (if that's what it is).
