Every time I return from Paris with a suitcase full of clothes and shoes, my friends marvel at how I can afford to shop in Paris. So let me tell you a few of my little secrets. I am not wealthy and I do not spend tons of money when shopping for my clothes.
I had a very nice suit at home, but I hardly ever wore it; weddings and funerals only. So with the impeding wedding of my niece on the horizon, I pulled it from hibernation and tried it on. It fit -- and if I didn't breath, move, eat or drink anything at the wedding it would be fine.
There was the news that it was sold out, and that it was a LIMITED TIME OFFER with no restocking! Meaning it was GONE. It appeared I was shut out, even though I saw some very cute things I would have liked. Then I wanted it because I couldn't have it.; oh yes, then I wanted it badly.

Whatever size you are in any particular piece of clothing, that's the size you are in that one store ONLY. Let's let this soak in and realize that if we are a bigger size in one store, that it does mean ANYTHING about us.
Happy Passover - Happy Easter! As always, I focus on the sugary for these joyous holidays - chocolate treats that promise even sweeter days in the spring and summer to come.
"What happened here?" I asked the clerk. "That's your senior discount," she replied. "The first Tuesday of every month is Senior Discount Day. I just figured--." She hesitated. "Yes, that's fine," I said quickly. I wasn't about to turn down a 10-percent discount. But the fact that she "figured" I was eligible just by looking at me was, well, unexpected.
I'm immediately accosted by noise. Several talking toys are going off unprompted. Speakers blare children's music that sounds like Mickey Mouse Club on meth. Somewhere a child screams bloody murder.
