Three’s A Crowd

We may disagree on a number of things, such as the best way to unroll the toilet paper, from the top or from the bottom, but my darling and I are in complete accord when it comes to dogs.  We love them, and can’t live without them. If you’re not a dog person, or even

Husbands in Cars Going to Costco (with apologies to Jerry Seinfeld)

It is the common wisdom that men, especially men of a certain generation, do not like to shop.  In fact, a British survey of over 2,000 people found that men became bored after only 20 minutes of shopping, while women could go for a full two hours.  This should come as a surprise to no

Pecking Order

Recently, I’ve been giving a good deal of thought to kissing.  In fact, I believe it’s becoming a mild, and hopefully temporary, obsession.  The type of kissing to which I’m referring is not the romantic, erotic “French” kiss (yes, I still remember those), but the less passionate and tongueless social kiss.

Higher Maintenance

Since becoming a "woman of a certain age" September has taken on a whole new meaning. I'm reminded of this as I sit at my desk, which suddenly has become strewn with postcards I've received from the medical community reminding me that it's once again time to check in for a check-up. I commented on

Get Less Done!

As far as I'm concerned, "productive" should be a four-letter word.  I say this because, like other four-letter words, it's a curse.  Or can be, when one has become so accustomed to ''doing" that sitting still for more than three minutes at a stretch is proof positive that you're a lazy, therefore unworthy, member of
