There are women of a certain type who have the power to intimidate me. Not in my work life, where I feel strong and competent, but in the more personal realms. It may go back to my grandmother and her notions of "femininity." While she was a kind, gentle woman, she was iron-willed when it came to "proper" behavior. As a child, I strove to be that person, but as an adult, I'm known as the woman who always takes things a step too far. I try to appreciate this quality in myself, but all it takes is a certain look from a woman like Evelyn and I'm 5 years old again. Do we ever stop going back to childhood?
