Buttoned Up

Maribelle had a tendency to say what was on her mind; it got her into trouble more often than not. There were times when she thought she'd like to be one of those cool, calm, collected women; the sort who had a closet full of shoes and a dozen handbags; but she wasn't, and she probably never would be.

Her feet liked comfort, and she changed her handbag when the zipper couldn't be repaired anymore.

Her mouth was like that, too. She just couldn't keep it buttoned up. Luckily, the people who stuck around appreciated her anyway.
