Why the Cool Kids Never sit at my Lunch Table

  • I look terrible in yoga pants
  • I can never remember how many innings in game of volleyball.
  • I wear sparkly hand-me-down socks that say "sweetheart" on them.
  • I don't know the difference between a gig and a kilometer.
  • I grew up having no idea who The Fonz was.
  • I forgot to teach my kids about manners.
  • having spent my money on sports trips, language trips, sump pumps, and gin, I never take my family to hike in the mountains.
  • Elliptical machines look a lot like corsets with "eject" buttons to me.
  • I'm always forgetting to shower and buy hair products.
  • heels make me look like I've just endured surgery without anesthetic.
  • I don't have a hot tub.
  • I don't want a hot tub.

I'll just be outside in the yard playing tether ball.

By myself.

Oh Joyce all I can see is Conrad at camp. I'll play tether ball with you , but I will suck at it and I will not know when someone wins or looses. You'll have to let me know.

You are wrong about the part about manners - I had a wonderful time with your lovely daughter on Saturday! MK

Thank you so much, MK. It was nice to see you in the flesh, and I'm so proud of that whole bunch of girls. What a beautiful, sweet lot they are. Your daughter is like a flower that never stops blossoming. Very beautiful.
