"I had a bacterial infection when I was two that turned into gangrene. People don’t believe all the things I can do. Like write. I have some of the best handwriting in my class." She put her arms together to show me how she would hold a pencil or pen.
"Are you in school?"
"Well I just finished medical school to become a medical assistant." Just then she got a phone call, swiped open the touch screen and effortlessly held the phone up to her ear. I waited patiently as she tried to work out some logistics with a family member. "That was my grandma. She’s on her way to pick me up and take me to my dance studio."
"Yeah, you should come to my performance."
I told her I would absolutely love to.

this is the best plot twist i have ever seen in my life
55. Lena Horne (The Graceful One)
Horne was the first black performer to be signed to a long term contract by a major Hollywood studio. Her sensual voice, alluring stage presence, and spectacular sense of style and stunning beauty were pure Old Hollywood perfection. In 1944, Lena Horne was the first African-American to land on the cover of a movie magazine. Her undeniable charm and good looks won her a ton of attention. One-shoulder dresses were a signature of Lena Horne’s on-stage ensembles for many years. “They didn’t make me into a maid, but they didn’t make me into anything else either,” she wrote in “Lena,” her 1965 autobiography. “I became a butterfly pinned to a column singing away in Movieland.” In the 1940’s, Lena Horne shun roles that called for her to play maids, opting instead for non-speaking cameos that focused on her beautiful voice. Lena Horne was a full-fledged Renaissance woman whose award-winning talents on stage and in film, coupled with her Civil Rights work, made her an icon.
hands down, still the best pick-up line i’ve heard in my life.
