She likes to anticipate her inclinations and buy things too trendy even for herself.
She inherited this from her mother, who always bestowed birthday presents that preceded her phases. For example, one year she was given dragonfly earrings which weren’t to her tastes at all, but then, six months later, dragonflies had become her thing, and the earrings were perfect.
This is why she has married a blonde man who snowboards, though she has a penchant for brunette businessmen.
She is sure, given the right amount of time, she will grow into him.
