I was struck when I pulled "Elle" out of my mailbox ... rather from up top. I'm having a bit of problem with my mailbox. I put my key in, and it broke off. I called the landlord, who is new and dismissive of the number of years that I have lived in building, to ask for assistance. He told me to call a locksmith. Call a locksmith? Isn't it your mailbox. I can tell that my box is chock full of mail as I see pages sneaking out at the edges. I imagine that there's a few magazines and lots of catalogues. Most of my bills are paperless, so I decided to just let it be. I left a note for the mail carrier to pull it all out, but no go. However, he/she has been politely leaving any new mail on top of the boxes so that I won't go forward without mail. I asked a friend who is more of a fixit type, and he said that the lock was easy enough to replace. I just have to catch the carrier. Yeah, right. There is no regularity in my zip code for mail, and sometimes, months could go by without any because they've lost the key for the building.
Back to "Elle." Bella is on the June cover, and I was struck by it. It is good ... strong. I'll let you know if anything is worth repeating. Until then, we'll have to settle for the lady in red.
