Gushing With Dignity

I ventured down the Mass Pike to a leafy suburb of Boston today. What made me brave the assholes courteous drivers of our illustrious toll road? These ladies. They were all lovely. Ok, some of them could have been psychopathic mass murderers and I wouldn’t have known because I had two little imps hanging off me, distracting me with demands for cups and food and crayons and then there was the taking off of shoes and the throwing of toys. But they all looked lovely. And very non-psychopathic mass murderer-ish.

We ate at an organic pizza restaurant. It was excellent and I, of course, wore a white shirt and promptly spilled red sauce right on my boob. I just personify grace and dignity. The conversation was interesting and these are definitely women I would like to hang out with again. Without the imps. Or the spillage.

    me and white just do not mix, hence why i do not wear white. do the ungraceful thing that i do and put a napkin on your chest to help cover any spillage. trust me i know firsthand how ample boosoms attract food.

    I’d be all over a no kids gathering like white on rice. Especially if there is booze involved. *hic*

    Glad you were able to get out and have some fun – even if the kids did come along.Wish I lived closer, cause the one with no kids and alcohol sounds like it could be fun:)
