tales of a girl in the city

Hemingway says to write the truth. One line followed by another. So, Mr. H. this one' s for you:

I sometimes stand in front of my mirror naked and grab the fat on the back of my thighs and pull really hard just to see what it would be like to have legs like a runway model. And if I could make it fit, I'd use one of those claw hair-clip thingies to pinch the fat back there permanently, and then I'd just cut holes in the back of all of my pants so there'd be room for the clip to stick through. And I'd walk around like that.

Which would mean I'd have to never let anyone see me from behind because then they'd know my hair-clip secret.

I think never letting anyone see me from behind would be difficult, but not impossible.
