I've Become A Cliche

October 20, 2010

  I was sitting at my computer yesterday morning, minding my own business and looking like I do every morning: skimpy tee shirt with no bra (I am, shall we say, well-endowed and I should actually be sleeping in a bra), ratty pajama bottoms, electrified-looking hair.  My Now Husband Dan had left to fondle his boat.  […]

During our visit with our friends Glenda and Ralph who live in York Harbor, Maine, we attended the Maine Fryeburg Fair.  Imagine a wine festival, only they ran out of wine and someone ran to the 7-11 and stocked up on beer and soda.  Or a food festival that featured totally normal foods like pickles […]

                                                                                I was talking to a friend of mine the other day who is two years older than me.  At some point in the conversation, she said “I know that technically I’m not a Boomer, having been born one year before the era of Boomerdom began.  But I still consider myself one.”  I understand this.  […]

LBL’s real estate manager suggested yesterday that LBL should write about the wall-to-wall carpeting currently being installed in the office.  Wall-to-wall carpeting?  Instead, how about LBL writing about flossing?  Or socks?  Or grocery coupons?  Any of those topics would be more compelling than wall-to-wall carpeting. To make matters worse, the carpeting isn’t all that attractive, so LBL […]

Life in the Boomer Lane and her friend Susan, in a never-ending quest for adventure totally beneath the maturity level that they should aspire to, found a new, humongous “store” to go to in the DC area. This store is called “Unique,” and they name is apt. The store is housed in the airplane-hanger-like space […]
