While I'm working on this post, I'm sitting on my bed watching "Siberian Tiger Quest" by Nature (on Netflix). It's about a Korean man who left his wife and kids and went to live in a pit in Sibera to study tigers. (Yes, it was of his own volition. No, he was not being paid to do this. Yes, this is the same Siberia that felled Napoleon's army.) He said it was minus 30 degrees outside and inside, and all he bought to eat were 300 bags of cooked rice, nuts and a container of salt. He stayed in the pit for 3 months before he saw any tigers and then stayed another 4 months video taping them. One night, a family who's matriarch he'd named "Bloody Mary" (pause), jumped on the roof of his pit and broke through trying to get at him. Then suddenly they left...
While I admire the man's fearlessness and determination, and realize that this awesome documentary couldn't have been made w/o his sacrifice...I can't help but wonder if he's crazy. I also can't help but feel for his poor wife, who I'm sure was simultaneously wondering if she'll ever see him again and mentally kicking him for not bringing any vegetables.
It's true that this story has nothing to doing with fashion, beauty or being petite, but I thought it was interesting. So, if you are looking for a tie-in, here it is: "Be bold!". (But not too bold...Siberia is really cold and he could've wound up as an appetizer for Bloody Mary and her 3 cubs.)
(This exact skirt is no longer available, so I've provided alternatives.)
