One day Rosemary Dunaway, America's Junior Miss surprised us by walking into our 8th grade Home-Ec class.
She walked right up to my desk. Once I tore my eyes off of this beautiful creature's face and hair, I noticed on her starched white collar, three little ladybug stick pins. "Those...are...so...pretty," I stammered. I felt like a horrid clod in comparison with her loveliness and poise.
She smiled a sincere perfect smile and answered, "Thank you! I love them. I think they're so feminine!" Her shiny brown hair bounced and her sparkling brown eyes looked directly at me.
I couldn't think of anything else "clever" to say. So I studied my desktop and she moved on. Not one of my most suave moments. I've remembered that day all these many years. So today I'm celebrating the Ladybug! Any other ladybug aficionados?
