I'm in LOVE

Debating whether or not to call St. Pete and try to talk to my mom, so much is going on that I want to tell her about. Problem is, I risk my father picking up and he's still mad at me about leaving home. I guess he'll never understand that I wasn't going to stay at the deli forever, I couldn't. I guess he doesn't understand the need for change, adventure, to wander.... He spent his entire life at the deli, it was right for him, it just isn't for me.
Anyway, the main event, so to speak, is this: I have found the woman of my dreams, Petty Officer Anya Neez. She's sweet, she's fun, she's gorgeous... And her hair! Oh my God, that hair. Like silk and just hangs perfectly around her China doll face. We've only gone on a couple of dates, but I already know she's the one. I can honestly say for the first time I know what it feels like to be in love.
The best part? She makes me feel attractive, like to the point where I have almost forgotten being the ugly, fat girl behind the counter at the deli. I can look at myself now and not see here bloated melon head staring back at me and it's the best feeling ever.
Second best. Being in love? That's the best.
Think I'll chance it. Even my father's anger can't take the edge off of the joy I feel with Anya.
