"My name is Mary Alice Young. When you read this morning’s paper you may come across an article about the unusual day I had last week. Normally there is never anything newsworthy about my life, but that all changed last Thursday. Of course, everything seemed quite normal at first. I made breakfast for my family, I performed my chores, I completed my projects, I ran my errands. In truth, I spent the day as I spent every other day, quietly polishing the routine of my life, until it gleamed with perfection. That’s why it was so astonishing when I decided to go to my hallway closet and retrieve a revolver that had never been used. My body was discovered by my neighbor, Mrs. Martha Huber, who’d been startled by a strange popping sound. Her curiosity aroused, Mrs. Huber tried to think of a reason for dropping in on me unannounced. After some initial hesitation, she decided to return the blender she had borrowed from me six months before."

This may be a day late and a dollar short, but the sentiment still stands. This is for the 10th anniversary of the #Desperate Housewives premiere! The show is wonderful, emotional, dark, mysterious, and so many other aspects; it has so many amazing characters and lovely women — including the very beautiful Mary Alice Young herself. #Brenda Strong. :D We love you!
