Beauty and the Geek?
I’m sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately, but Sophia’s been going through something really strange. Ever since she and Sebastian decided not to date (which, okay, was his decision…), she’s been so depressed.
I’ve taken her to 205. I’ve fed her Pop Burgers. I’ve even shopped the Bergdorf Sale FOR her so she could just look at my edited selection online and convince herself she really does need that extra Anna Sui dress, but nothing (NOTHING!) is working.
Today she sends me a text:
“Eva, am I stupid? Do guys only like me bc I’m pretty?”
But Sophia’s not stupid, no way. She’s just never needed to prove her smartness (smartness = not a word, oops) because she’s got charm and attitude and the best body since Sienna.
Then today Jenny calls me.
“Sophia came by today and said, “we’re doing some shopping.” I thought she meant we were going to Cynthia Rowley, but no. She whips out the NYU course catalogue and goes “If I go to night school, can I borrow your Miu Miu messenger bag? I want to take this course called ‘Creative marketing for the theater’ and it comes with a lot of books. Do you think I can handle a lot of books?”
Jenny told her to take the class. I called her and told her to take it too.
I don’t know why, but I suddenly feel very relieved.
