Another recent ill-fated trip to the park inspired this new t-shirt design:

Today is a school holiday. I had forgotten about this until we decided to go out for breakfast and I noticed that every table had a school-aged kid or two at it. Well, almost every table. One table had an older couple who seemed pretty darn irritated by all of the youthful exuberance. It reminded me of my early days of traveling with an infant. And then of my more recent days of traveling with a toddler. And of my current life of traveling with a preschooler. For some reason I always get stuck sitting next to the jerky business traveler. Over breakfast I started thinking that it would be nice to have a t-shirt for my daughter to wear to lighten the mood on our next airplane trip. So I decided to design one!
We might still get stuck next to the gaseous, self-important baby-hater but next time my kid will have a cute shirt to spill her apple juice on.
Laugh if you will but my daughter and I have matching bathrobes. The fabric is soft, fluffy, and as cozy as can be on chilly mornings. It also hugs every single bump, lump and curve of our respective bodies. Somehow or another this looks quite a bit more charming and adorable on her than it does on me…
I just turned 34 and decided to treat myself to a haircut for my birthday. While I was sitting in the chair I noticed that I have way more grey hair than I had previously thought. Way more. Since I don’t really want to get involved in a long-term coloring plan at this point in my life (and I’m still a little traumatized by that asshole at Gene Juarez who talked me into a red “Rachel” cut in 1995) I have decided to reexamine my options in terms of accessorizing.
In light of the fact that my head is so huge that I actually have wondered if I was born with a birth defect that my mother has chosen to keep secret, I generally don’t wear hats. They don’t fit and they don’t flatter. So I’m thinking about delving back into the world of the silk head scarf. The scarf and I had a brief affair when I was in my 20s but I think I was too young to pull it off. I am ready to try again.
But the question is this:
Will I look glamorous, like Joan Crawford in Sudden Fear?
Slightly insane, like Little Edie?
Or more like this?
On second thought, Miss Clairol may be getting herself a new customer soon.
I love these keys! Partly because they would be easy to identify in my huge, crowded, dark, dingy purse and partly because they look as though they could be used as a makeshift weapon. How ’bout a pig nose to the temple, Would-Be Attacker?
Oh, you would prefer an eave?! No problem! POW!
Orange Crocs? With socks? Child abuse.
