Hot Sex vs Dirty Laundry

July 2, 2014

15

Life in the Boomer Lane has never really thought about her favorite room of the house, but assumes it would be the kitchen because of proximity to the refrigerator.  She had a real estate appointment the other day in which the homeowner, in showing her the recently-designed kitchen in his vintage home said he created […]

June 3, 2014

Friends of Life in the Boomer Lane belong to a food coop.  When they are out-of-town, she and Now Husband receive their share (30 lbs of root vegetables).  Or an extra loaf of bread.  The bread (and everything else), she was informed, was the product of biodynamic farming. LBL, plunk in the middle of her […]

The Shopping Maul

April 28, 2014

35

  Life in the Boomer Lane loves to shop. Anywhere, anytime, anyplace. (A digression here: LBL is not a shopaholic. Nor is she wealthy. Often, she buys nothing when she shops. When she does buy, it is mostly items on sale or on discount. And most of what she buys she returns anyway, which is […]

Things I Don’t Understand

April 21, 2014

  There are a lot of things Life in the Boomer Lane doesn’t understand anymore, and she fears she is running out of time to make any sense of them. 1. She doesn’t understand why, when she flies (on a plane, mostly), TSA officials are always staring her down, ordering her to get into (or […]

Guerrilla Aging: When Where We Are Isn’t Where We Thought We’d Be

March 21, 2014

40

I had dinner with a friend/colleague a couple of days ago. She is sixty, and for decades was the devoted wife of a career military man. A registered nurse by training, she happily set aside her profession and assumed the role she felt was her highest calling. She raised her sons in wherever her husband’s […]
