I shared my first betrayal in a previous post; that betrayal being a very mean neighborhood boy convincing my 4-year-old self that because I was little, I should choose the tiniest grape from the bunch that he was offering. Of course, the grape was horribly tart and th...

We all have these! Here are a few of mine: 

  • Sure, one more vodka gimlet sounds good. 

  • I trust you and I need a change. Cut it any way you think will work.

  • I don't think it matters that this yogurt's use-by date has passed.

  • About a former boss, the...

Certain sentences, some said to me and others said in my presence, have stuck with me verbatim throughout the years. I had so much fun with Parts 1 & 2  (and received some great shared remembrances from friends) that it's time for Part 3:

I don't like to procrastinate, but I  make an exception when it comes to the DMV. When my husband and I moved to Florida 5 years ago, it took me ages to get a new driver's license. When we moved back to the Philadelphia area 2 years ago, I put off (and off and off) get...

My husband, Rob, likes martinis. Dry, no vermouth. Gin (chilled), not vodka. And his gin of preference is Beefeater's. With a twist or an olive, depending on his mood. Served in a martini glass. 

He has an ongoing dilemma when ordering this drink with bartenders he does...

Certain sentences, some said to me and others said in my presence, have stuck with me verbatim throughout the years. I had so much fun with Part 1 (and received some great shared remembrances from friends) that it's already time for Part 2: 

"This one really likes to sw...
