i like your freckles

When I was young, an old man working at a food stand told me "I used to have freckles like you, but they went away." I remember thinking, so there is hope, they will go away! Well, they never did ...

When I was 19, I had a very sweet boyfriend from Ecuador  who would tell me that he likes my "spreckles." In college, the Russian man who owned the liquor store a block away from my apartment would always say (in a very thick Russian accent), "hey freckles, I like your freckles. You come visit me again soon." I love quoting him with my fake Russian accent: "hey freckles ... you come see me again soon." I started to think, maybe freckles aren't so bad ... as much as I used to hate them, I kind of love them now. The best part about freckles? They hide blemishes!
