Recently I went to the DMV to get my new Illinois license. The man behind the counter was extremely chatty for a state worker, and we exchanged pleasantries and conversation while he processed my paperwork. He told me about his wife and his plans to move to Colorado soon, I shared a story about my kids and our recent move from Pittsburgh.
We were simpatico. Until he asked me what my weight was, and I lied right to his face.
Now, I know I’m not the first woman to fudge my…Continue
Some of my favorite television shows are those set in the workplace. I love getting a sneak peek into worlds I haven’t experienced. And, since I haven’t worked regularly in an office for many years, I’m fascinated by the dynamics between the characters. Now, I know this is fiction.

I would guess that since the dawn of time, women and probably some men too, have gone to great lengths to care for their hair (no pun intended). Some of them wore wigs, presumably to protect their hair from intense sunlight, and others used a variety of methods to deal with everything from normal dirt, to graying and even hair loss. Folks back then were pretty careful about their hair and only used natural ingredients because, well, that’s all they had.
Fast forward to the baby…Continue
