  • The Look

    I'm not completely sure, but I think I got "The Look" at the grocery store this morning! I saw someone I know casually, for the first time in months. She got a little squinty-eyed. Out loud, we talked only about our children and their school adventur...

  • Standing tall and letting go

    Standing on my own is hard on me. It makes me feel uneasy, and I feel uncomfortable. If sitting is the new smoking as they say, then I am a chain smoker. I sit all the time. At home, in the car, at work and then back at home. Sitting down eases my pa...

  • Trick or Treat

    I haven't had chocolate and candy bars for months and I didn't really miss it. "Perhaps I have lost my sweet tooth", that's what I thought until I saw all the Halloween candy.  It's everywhere. In the office, in the stores, it seems I can't get a br...

    I had already checked out, my friend -as usual- took her time; she was not even near the register. I had time to kill, and I sat down on the bench close to the checkout and watched the people around me. I am in no hurry on Saturdays, I can piddle aro...
