Girls’ Night Out: An Almost True Story

I recently read a study that said fun is more fun when it's shared with friends.  While this may be something we know instinctively, scientific validation is always reassuring.  Now when someone in your group asks "Are we having fun yet?" you can roll your eyes and point to the data. Thus, it was the

The Word Is Out!

So you think you’re woke because you got with the latest meme? Or maybe you understood even one line of the lyrics  from "Hamilton?" Would you bet that you know what Bible means? Or salty? Well, save your money! Because if you think salt is a condiment or a crusty old sailor, and Bible refers

What Happens in the Locker Room Stays in the Locker Room?

To borrow a catch phrase from George Takei:  Oh My!  What a field day for the snarksters!   Could we possibly be living in a better time? Pre-election daily life has turned into a satire of pre-election daily life. Such a plethora of new material with each news cast, tweet, and so-called presidential debate, one hardly

Pop Quiz

There is nothing that says “old” more than conversing with someone several decades less ancient than you, and having absolutely no idea what they’re talking about.  The grammar and syntax seem familiar,  but the actual words may as well be Urdu.  This could bring tears to the eyes even to those among us with Twitter

I have a confession to make.  When I take you into my confidence, I know I risk dropping several points in your estimation of me.  You may no longer regard me as one of the “cool” people.  (Is it still cool to be regarded as a “cool” person?) But I like to believe that the

English As A Second Language

Growing older is no excuse for not keeping on top of things!  No, this is not a reference to the sexual practices of septuagenarians, but to being in tune with what is happening today!  Specifically, I am referring to words, vernacular, vocabulary. For instance, do you think you know what the word “cloud” refers to?

How To Disturb The Peace

Looking over the kitchen counter, I can see my husband.  He is in the living room, sitting in his favorite chair, reading the newspaper, and leisurely enjoying his second cup of coffee.  It is early morning, and he’s still in his pjs, bath robe and slippers.  It is one of those days when he doesn’t
