My son Jack, who is 23 graduated from college and is now living in New York. He called to tell me about his most recent date.


Jack is a bartender at a Go Go bar in Manhattan and he met a super pretty Argentinian girl who was just visiting the city for a few day. They decided to have a late dinner at an African/French restaurant.  Maybe she was impressed with the fact that he can speak French.


After dinner they wanted to go skating but the ice skating rink in Central Park was closed. Because Jack is 23, I guess, the obvious solution was to sneak in (I like saying they "snuck in"  rather than they "broke in". )


They were sliding around on the ice and everything was good until the Zamboni driver found them and called the police.  The police arrived, of course, and kicked them out of Central Park.


Now that's a date! Criminal activity,a Zambonie driver, the police and African food.


I told this exciting and romantic tale to my friend, Cara, who is in her mid-20s. "Aaarrr,' she moaned, "I got married too early, I'll never break into a skating rink and get kicked out by the cops".


This story is the reason you should not marry too early.


 Lots of times, twenty minutes after the marrige, the new husband sits down to watch tv and he doens't get up for years. The ugly truth is, sometimes, there's a lot more excitement in the dating part of a relationship.


So girls, if you are under the age of 25 and thinking about marriage, slow that pony down. Holy Cow! Have some fun first, be silly and semi-dangerous and goofy for as long as you can. If he loves you he'll wait.


And remember, always keep an eye on the zambonie driver and any parent who doesn't live vicariously through their children must have really boring kids.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
