Today's blogging challenge: What fictional character in a movie, TV show, or book do you identify with, and why?
Miranda from Sex and the City.
Aside from the law degree, the Manhattan salary, and the marathon training, Miranda and I are essentially the same person.
We're both smart (OK, one of us is really more smart-ish), independent, and fiercely protective of our friends. We both enjoy dating, but not necessarily relationships. Neither of us want to give up our free Saturdays, closet space, or chocolate.
We're both also a little insecure. We both push people (OK - men) away before they get the chance to leave. We're convinced they will, because all the others have. We also keep our feelings bottled up, and as a result, sometimes take innocent comments way too personally.
But we also both know how to love, and forgive, and ask for help. We just require someone very special before we'll make the effort.
