Welcome to the beginning of "bikini season."
You've heard the saying, "Beauty is more than skin deep." And you probably know someone who is not physically beautiful but who turns heads wherever she goes. Someone who's a magnet for friends and admirers. What does she have that you don't have? Nothing essential. But she knows how to embody her essence, how to reveal her essence.

But no matter how comfortable I felt with "the comedy bit," I was always left feeling like I didn't measure up.
