Gail Forrest recently started doing standup which she finds is a complete blast. Gonepausal is her blog and she has a book on Amazon by the same name filled with stories of her skewed, funny view on midlife and all its attendant surprises. Humor is the only way forward at this point.

New Year Resolutions – Here They Come Again and There They Go

It’s New Year’s resolution time again.  I can’t say 2021 flew by but I’m glad it’s over as my brain is near the exploding point from the endless “breaking news” which if it’s “breaking” it’s never good.  And although I liked seeing Dr.Fauci 24/7, as he reminds me of...

My Grinch Advanced Training

Bah humbug, it’s that time of year when the holiday Grinch in me comes out in full force.  I never like being invited to holiday parties because people are expected to bring things.  Hostess/host gifts give me a headache as they involve: wine over fifteen dollars a bottle, food...

Modern Love – The Update

It was a Tuesday. I reluctantly woke up, crawled out of bed, put on a pair of ratty sweatpants to walk the dog, unplugged my iPhone from the charger and tuned it back on.  And turned it back on? I stared at it in horror. The little phone that...

True Confessions: Men & Women on the Street Interviews

What do men and women really know about each other? If we could be inside each other’s head would the shock factor turn us to stone? Are there questions too difficult to ask or answers which we would rather not hear? This haunts me, after all, none of us...

Sex Over Sixty: Hot or Not?

Recently, out on a Match.com date, a 76-year-old man asked me if women over 60 still want to have sex. Just as a warning, he stated on his profile that he was 66; funny math, I'd say. And men protest that women fudge the numbers! Geez. Because of his...

Weight Weight, Don’t Tell Me!

Everyone I know is on a diet. We are a nation in pursuit of thin. Have you noticed no one’s ever NOT dieting? And there is a diet for every life. Each week a new one: intermittent fasting, Keto, Paleo (does that involve dinosaurs or dating a paleontologist?), all...

“It’s In His Kiss. That’s Where It Is”

Do you remember your first kiss? It’s memorable; one of the epic firsts in girl’s life.  I, however, am embarrassed to admit that mine wasn’t until high school. There was a lot of middle school kissing going on, just not with me. I was way behind on the adolescent...

Breaking News: Knitting Added to Both Winter and Summer Olympic Games

I am a knitter in training. I suck, but love it. I have become crazed with picking up my bamboo needles whenever I have a free moment. I even love the needles; so shiny and smooth yet maddening as they betray me and drop stitches and holes appear. Curses! ...

Thongs Be Gone

HALLELUJAH! Granny panties are back and making a fashion splash. My dream has come true. No more binding, itching, extreme waxing, or spending the day pulling underwear up or out of my butt. Thongs be gone! Welcome back, soft, comfy, waxing-free undies. Thank you, ARQ for realizing that some...

 Slanguage Anyone? A Comedic Modern Guide to Code Breaking Texting Lingo

I studied French in high school and when I realized my accent would actually scare people I gave it up for Spanish. Spanish is so much easier to pronounce and not get laughed at.  I didn’t continue with Spanish but can stumble my way through ordering tapas. I did...
