  • Seeing you there brought her back
  • I like doing something that makes older men remember their mothers
  • Told the husband that when the draft goes out he is taking me for a mojito
  • Not much for drinks but like ones that taste like something else
  • Do you know what not once in my life have I ever gone into a bar by myself?
  • As likely to do that as apply lipstick in public
  • Some things date me
  • Taken time to adapt to these things
  • Jackets and coats that are shorter than what's under them
  • Bra straps that show under racerback tanks or dresses
  • Shoes and purses that don't match

  • Midcalf skirts
  • Hope I haven't offended anyone here
  • Shoes we can't walk in
  • All this sewing has reminded me how energizing it is to go all in on what you are working on
  • I enjoy working hard

  • No date stamp on learning
  • Remember that
