“a jury of her peers” = women who don’t clean their house are probably murderers

I just finished reading this short story by Susan Glaspell. Very potent. Funny story: I’m reading it thinking “This would make a great play. I can imagine the staging so clearly…maybe I should adapt it.” So I walk into the office feeling very artsy and clever this morning, when I see Chris reading the story [...]

My travels through the alphabet

Well, it’s official. After being a slightly overweight teen, going through two pregnancies, two years of nursing, and the subsequent suspension of said nursing, I had been through almost the entire alphabet of bra sizes. And yes, when I finally got up the courage to have myself offically sized at GAP Body today, the saleswoman [...]
