Stand Tough

I’m gonna be honest with you guys.  While I may be a proud sass monster (Sassquatch perhaps?) and definitely have my moments of rage, when it comes right down to it, I am a bit of a softie.  Show me a photo of a puppy, or kitty, or otter, or baby or ::insert cute thing here:: and I am basically down for the count. And don’t even get me started on stories of true love, animals being rescued or people helping people!  Seriously, when it comes to tugging at heartstrings, I get played like a fiddle.

The problem is, having an ooey gooey center isn’t always the best way to go through life. Sometimes I find I need a bit of armor, an exoskeleton if you will. On those days, I find dressing just a little bit tougher gives me that extra boost I need to feel like a real rebel without a soft spot. Then I am ready to wade through a sea of adorableness unscathed…well unless it’s something really cute, then armor-schmarmor, I am a full on puddle.  I may be tough, but we all have our Achilles’ heel, and mine just happens to be all things cuddly.
