"I'm not hungry, but I know there's pie. So, I want pie."
We are well into December by now, but I do hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving (those who celebrate it).
I ate too much pie, and further confused my family by being a pescatarian.
📝A List of Interesting Things
📖 I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron - Have you ever found the perfect book at the perfect time? This was that book for me.
I was in Paperback Exchange browsing their huge selection of books (which were mostly romance). I saw this book out of the corner of my eye, and I was immediately drawn to the bright yellow cover. Then, I saw the title - I Feel Bad About My Neck.
My immediate reaction was okay, great another book about how being an aging woman sucks, blah, blah, blah. But knowing that my judgments aren’t always right, I read the first page. Then, the second, third… I read the first essay and did everything I could to contain my laughter.
This woman is in my head. I recommend this book to anyone, but especially to women in their 40s and women going through some changes in their life.
