My best self. She was first named "Rollerskate Skinny" after the Old 97's song (and, to a lesser extent, the band named that--which came first?), but she isn't thin. She's lean and mean in terms of affect. She has adult braces, red, because she likes them, not because she needs to improve her teeth. She knows the joke doesn't have to be on anyone. She drives a station wagon, and she drives it beautifully (I don't drive. My parents met as car salespeople. Psychologize away). Not-shy heart animal.
