365 Days Writing Prompt Challenge: Day 318

318. Health & Beauty:

I didn’t really care about myself all that much to be honest. I certainly didn’t care how I looked and the fact that I put shit food and drink into my body at nearly every chance I got was evidence that I didn’t care much about my health either. 

Maybe that’s why it was that I called my first and second daughters, Health & Beauty. I wanted them to have what I’d never given myself because I didn’t really think that I was worthy of either. 

My other children had normal names and trying to explain to teachers and parents at a school why that was, was pointless. They just assumed I was some weirdo hippy who’d been high on drugs when I’d had them. 

And that wasn’t far wrong.
