THOUGHTS: OUR BLOGGERS
Thursday, June 8, 2006 at 9:18 a.m. I was on my way to work, in an early-summer dress, complementary cardigan, and low heels when a just-out-of-college-aged young man passed me, looked at my semi-appropriate work cleavage, and muttered, “Nice tatas.”

Here I am, Blog! Thank you all for the comments on my previous entry. It’s so nice for a mom to hear some gratitude! Maybe I can use you all to teach my little munchkins some manners!
I began the day, this first day of being a Nobel Prize winner, by eating an extra bowl of Grape Nuts at approximately 8:03 a.m. Indulgent, I know, especially for an 82-year-old woman—but I’ve just won the Nobel Prize in Literature!
If You’re So ‘Crazy Busy,’ Why Did I Catch You Watching Real Housewives when I was Looking Through Your Window Last Night?

It happens all the time; I’m in the supermarket, at the doctor’s office, or swimming laps at the community pool and BAM! A woman is hitting on me. Don’t get me wrong; I have nothing against people being gay. It’s just…why me? Why are they talking to me, asking suggestively where the “bathroom” is? This isn’t a gay bathhouse! What am I doing to ask for this?
With the click of a mouse, it was all over.
To most women, ladies brunch is a super fun way to enjoy a delicious meal and catch up with the besties. But for me, it’s a huge ordeal that forces me to constantly remind my friends why I’m only eating the spinach out of my egg white omelet.
Last night I was patrolling the browser history of the men in my family and saw that they had visited some of your “mommy blogs.” You posted a lot of pictures of yourself and your kids on family vacations, but the men in my family noticed something else: I think you know what you are doing, you MILFs!
I’m at the airport, looking for something to gnosh on before I meet my sister for a spa weekend in Santa Fe. This Chia Protein Bar is organic – but it’s also nine dollars.
