Five Minute Friday: "She"

Thanks to Lisa-Jo Baker at Five Minute Friday for the prompts.
Five Minute Friday
"She, she told me that she loved me and like a fool I believed her from the start." Lyrics to a song by The Monkees
She sells sea shells by the seashore. - Ancient tongue twister
Who is she?  Said in movies and TV to the beautiful, rail thin girl/woman that "happens" to walk by in a scene.  What's with that?  I want to see "who is she" said about a plain girl with massive intelligence who "happens" to walk by in a scene.  Even the Big Bang Theory doesn't have that.  BTW--I hate that show (sorry Sheldon fans).
Man, this is hard.
The "she" that people love.  That is who I want to be.  But I'm still not really sure who "she" is.  There was a hodgepodge question a couple of weeks back about when was the first time you really felt like a grown up.  I haven't yet.  "She" is a real grown up.  I still feel like a college student trying to find her place in society. 
Man, this is too hard.


  1. Hi Shannon! I totally follow you here... who is this anonymous "she" that we are all supposed to aspire to be like? I think "she" doesn't exist and we should all just be content being our own she selfs. :) Happy Friday to you from Arizona!

    1. Thanks so much for reading and sharing, Julie. Happy Friday to you from Alabama. RTR!

  2. I love that phrase "being my she self"! Stopping in from 5 minutes for Friday. This is my first time participating and this is great for a Friday. Happy Friday (Hi Ya'll, actually, I never say that) to you both from Georgia.

    1. I've only done 3 or 4 of them, but I really enjoy it. Even when it doesn't go well (in my eyes). Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
