Hand Me Downs

A recent encounter with the lotion ladies could be the beginning of my holiday spirit.  That would mean it’s super early this year. I was at Walgreens, my favorite putzing around convincing myself I need Tic Tacs store, looking for a new lotion.  The lotion I currently use is too expensive and I’m tired of spending that kind of…

Pocket

I used to carry a big purse. I would pride myself on being able to shove anything in my purse.  I had wipes, napkins, a big wallet with checks, Band-Aids, water, extra laces, Sharpies.  Everything anyone could ever need.  I would sometimes shove a book in there.  I liked having lots of stuff.  I wasn’t…

Fatigues

Memorial: Something, especially a structure, a reminder of a person or event. Today we are set to remember the people that have fought and died in the service of our military, our country. There are all sorts of memorials, all over the world, made of every material imaginable.  Cold marble or granite, strong steel, copper, elemental…

Warning:  This post is a rant.  If you are not in the mood, or you’re super sensitive, or maybe even if you bring your dog into Starbucks.  You should close out and come back later. Take Our Daughters…and Sons to Work Day. Stop.  This has really got to stop. The day was originally Take Our Daughters to…

Stetson Hat

I feel like a crockpot tonight. Like I’m stewing in my juices and it’s only a matter of time before I cross over into something rich and nourishing, something I can finally understand and enjoy. I have spent most of my first fourty-two years searching for who I am, what makes me special, and what…

Crop Top

Apparently short hair is not sexy. Victoria’s Secret, who I guess are the protectors of sexy these days, aired an ad in which one of the models had chin length hair.  She was obviously a beautiful woman, half dressed and by all other standards would be deemed sexy, but her hair was to her chin.…

Bleach

I go to a day spa type of place for my…maintenance. Let’s call it that because Maggie is always telling me, “Keep it rated G, Mom.  Let’s keep it G.” Anyway, a girl needs things done, so I go.  The other day I noticed there’s a Menu of Services, so while I was waiting I…

Mohair Coat

It’s only money if you have it.  The same holds true for hair. It seems easier to give when money abounds.  If I’m not worried about paying for groceries or my electricity being shut off, I’m more willing to share, donate, or give money to someone in need. If, however, I hit a point where…

Pants

Restrooms are private, even in public. I was at Starbucks this morning and as I went to the bathroom, a woman was leaving.  She held the door open and waited for me to enter.  It was a full door hold.  I was polite and said, “Thank you,” but it felt super strange. Why are you…
