Listen Up Ladies of a Certain Age. You know, you 40 to 60-year-old women. Midlife Ladies. What I see and hear you doing when you are public speaking and in social situations has got to stop.

You know how sometimes you use an expression without thinking about its meaning? I did that recently, and it came back to haunt me. I'd written a fun article, Happy Holiday Sex, that included a sentence about how dealing with sugar-crazed kids or dysfunctional family members 'doesn't necessarily put you in the mood...unless that mood involves killing someone.'
