My husband and I used to say that we were cheating.
I was married to an old guy without money, and his Japanese wife (me!) was anything but obedient and submissive.
We broke the mold.
Is being different same as being disobedient? If you do not follow the crowd, are you a rebel?
I am diffident and do not like to stand out and try my best to stay low key.
It seems, though, that I have always done things in my own way. I’m not one for reading manuals before I start.
I don’t know if I ever thought I was different. I think I always hoped that I was.
I still wish I were certifiably atypical and special, but, at this point, I take a peculiar old woman.
