Tossed Salad Friday

~~ I am incredibly excited by the swivel to the liberal side in NYC. On the other hand, I regret living in a town where the Supervisor has been in office since the Bee Gees, Abba, and Styx were at the top of the music charts. The man has reportedly been leaving work by 2 pm for years, gives short shrift to anyone with a progressive idea, festers while our town decays, and yet he’s returning to his $111,000/year job (plus benefits) with 45% of the vote. Change may be good elsewhere, but rancid is just fine in Smithtown.

~~ The woman on the phone was rather snippy when I said that I wasn’t accepting new clients right now. She asked, “So why did you answer your phone?”

~~ Years ago, when I aspired to be on TV, I dressed and did my makeup in a different way (the whole “dress for the job you want” approach). I was asked from time to time if I was indeed someone the questioner should know, though alas, I never was. Which leads me to today, when I dress as I envision most other writers do.  In such attire, I went to a yoga class, where a woman on the next mat whispered, “Are you that woman from the TV news?” I looked at her, shook my head, and said, “Bless you.”

~~ When you ask a medical professional how some disorder could possibly arise, be prepared for an answer you won’t like. “No reason; you’re just getting old,” he said.  And you can bet your ass that I didn’t say “Bless you” to him in response.

Have a great weekend!
