'Did I ever tell you I almost died in this pond, Mom?' my son asked as we were having a lovely walk in the woods near my home. It is fun to shock a parent who believes their kid is close to perfect. I have shocked my own mother of course about the things I did when I was young -- and just like her, it turns out I was sometimes clueless.
As an adult, I am not what you would call a champion shopper. I am the friend that paid full price for the sweater at Lord and Taylor when you bought it for half price at Marshalls. I don't know "whose" shoes I am wearing, and I never buy three dresses with the intention of returning two of them (though I have been known to give two away years later with the tags still intact.)
