Kudos to this awesome writer! Loved the story. Best of all,I can relate to this as I got a congenital defect on my left leg.
I was known in high school for my legs. I was not bright or athletic, but I had nice legs. Few of my former class mates can remember my name, but many of them can’t forget “the guy with the legs.” It’s been 18 years and so much has changed in my life, but not my legs. They’ve remained as they were.
So it didn’t surprise me very much when my girlfriend confronted me about it one night.
“If you love me,” she said. “If you really, really love me, you will grow hair on your legs.”
We were at an intersection waiting for the traffic light to turn green. Next to a tall building was a huge Svenson billboard.
“Babe?” I said.
“You heard me,” she said. She folded her arms across her chest and continued gazing outside the window.
“I love your legs just the way they are.”
