Girl, in a nutshell

I

Five-five-ish

With reddish brown hair

Not gorgeous, but her mother thinks she's pretty

II

Passionate

With unstable emotions

Not really crazy, but her brothers sometimes say she is

III

Romantic

With a flair for the impossible

Not maudlin, but she likes a movie that'll make her cry

IV

Christian

With uncompromising faith

Not religious, but she's madly in love with her Lord

V

Creative

With a set of calligraphy pens

Not an artist, but she's still always covered in paint

VI

Independent

With her very own pickup

Not a fancy thing, but she adores her purple hobo truck

VII

Smitten

With her boyfriend

Not what anyone expected, but he's the one for her

VIII

Overprotected

With a relatively easy life

Not that she minds, but sometimes she finds it hard to relate

IX

Surrounded

With friends who really care

Not entirely popular, but her friends are the best in the world

X

Awkward

With a strange sense of humor

Not hilarious, but her sarcasm keeps people laughing

XI

Introverted

With an impressive library

Not reclusive, but sometimes she prefers fiction over fact

XII

Sensible

With occasional lapses into inanity

Not always wise, but she usually avoids impulsive decisions

XIII

Obsessed

With something new every week

Not fanatical, but she doesn't do things half-heartedly

XIV

Talkative

With an opinion on most everything

Not that she's dogmatic, but she does like to argue

XV

Spontaneous

With a fierce opposition to monotony

Not that she really likes change, but it keeps things interesting

XVI

Sixteen

With all her life before her

Not that she wants to grow up, but the future doesn't look half bad
