People come in and out of our lives and the true test of friendship is whether you can pick back up right where you left off the last time you saw each other.
I think all women have a friend who at some point dumped them or betrayed them or deeply disappointed them. And at the same time all women have a friend who they dumped or betrayed or hurt in some way. That’s universal in women’s friendships.
And often it would be a woman who was in her 70s or 80s who would win the beauty contest because bound feet never age.
It used to happen in villages and towns in China that they would have – I guess you’d call them beauty contests – where all of the women of a particular village or town would be seated behind these screens or curtains with only their feet showing.
