I Am SO Not Sorry

Monday, October 17th, 2016

There is no such thing as a woman who isn’t sorry. We’re sorry you lost someone. We’re sorry we got to the cashier first. We’re sorry your day isn’t going well. Sorry sorry sorry.

But Does it Really Keep on Ticking?

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

You remember those old commercials, where a Timex watch gets really put through the ringer – stomped on, thrown across the room you name it – but nonetheless, it keeps on working. Samsonite luggage gets thrown from a plane and it’s unscathed. A Bic pen gets shot out of a gun and, by golly, it still works! You watch Mad Men now and you see them coming up with these kind of ideas for ad campaigns, knowing that most people will just believe them. Well, not me. I had to test them for myself. (more…)

12 Step Program for BBs

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

Hello. My name is Lucille and I’m 58. And I’m not recovering.

I don’t lie about my age and I really believe it’s a mistake to.  Say you’re 10 years younger than you are and people think, “Oh. She looks so old for her age.”

Of course, it pays to look younger than you are, which is probably why I’ve never felt the urge to lie (except when I was 18 and said I was 21. . . but that’s a different story.).

Those Aren’t Fighting Words, Dear

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

This is an absolutely incredible and eye-opening story about a woman dealing with her husband’s midlife crisis, published last week in the New York Times Modern Love column.

Those Aren’t Fighting Words, Dear
by Laura A. Munon

But wait. This isn’t the divorce story you think it is. Neither is it a begging-him-to-stay story. It’s a story about hearing your husband say “I don’t love you anymore” and deciding not to believe him. And what can happen as a result.

If you’ve been there, worry about getting there or think you’ll never be there, read this. I mean it.
