I received a terrifying letter in the mail the other day: an invitation to a grade school reunion.  As in eighth grade. Ew, right? The very thought sent chills up my spine.  Did I really want to revisit my adolescent self? Does anyone? Now, I am old enough to know that every one of us, […]

I think it’s time to send the Mommy Wars off to bed once and for all.

Hey there, boys, lookin’ gooood! Two items that caught my eye on Wednesday made me chuckle at the ways in which tables can turn.  The first was a feature on girdles for men.  Yep, read that right.  But these “Ript Skinz” are not exactly benign man-versions of Spanx, nor are they silly derivatives of Kramer’s […]
