I once worked with a pre-teen girl who always seemed to identify with the dark side of life. While I did not think that was inherently a bad or dangerous thing, I was concerned that she seemed disconnected from the lighter, more sunny and carefree aspects of living.
Just before Halloween *Lisa approached me and asked me if I had any Halloween costumes she could borrow. I couldn’t come up with anything but then I suddenly remembered that I had some old cheerleading uniforms in my closet.
“I know you wouldn’t be interested in those!” I laughed.
