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.

 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...

What’s in YOUR Medicine Cabinet?

I was never good at games. Monopoly almost did me in as I never won a round or accumulated property. I longed for Park Place but always ended up in jail. The only card game I ever tried and won was War but that’s just the luck of the...

Breaking the Dating Code – 2021

I think of myself as someone with a rather large vocabulary. I actually won $5.00 betting on the definition of the word "penultimate." I claimed victory and the cash. Unfortunately, my date didn’t like being wrong or handing over the money. My friend David warned me about using big...

My New Dating Site: Home Depot – Or “It’s in Aisle 12 on the Left”

I spent more time at Home Depot during the pandemic than the grocery store. The aisles were wide, people were scarce, and paper towels, toilet paper and light bulbs were cheap. I was shocked, however, to realize I was literally in “man land.” Rarely a woman in sight. In...

Post-Vaccinated Dating. You Can’t Make This Sh*t Up!

Vaccinated woman looking to date vaccinated man. Yep, I thought I’d try it again with all systems go go go! It felt freeing to finally be able to meet a man in person and not on a computer screen or iPhone. I decided to jump into the post-vaccine dating...

Jeanetics!

Thank You, Mom. I am not a shopper. I refer to myself as an anti-shopper and have friends who would testify under oath about my inability to go in a store and purchase. I have no patience for it and I’m cheap. My closet is empty. The clothes that hang...

Jail Break: Out in the World After 2 Shots

After a year in isolation, afraid of every surface, elevator, sneeze, cough, grocery store aisle, and other humans, I have been liberated. Thank you, Moderna for my swollen arm and headache as I have never been more excited to have either and not complain. I am a certifiable needle-phobe,...

Out Out, Damn Algorithms!

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make Me a Match. Wait, hold everything. Stop! No matches; I changed my mind. I am not willing to fork over $25,000 to $100,000 to as high as $250,000 for a date(s). I just read, however, matchmakers are back because the pandemic has made it harder for...

Is Anybody Better Than Nobody?

Will you be mine? I’m looking for applicants. There’s no application fee and you can apply quickly and easily online. I’ve deleted the financial statement page as well as questions about height, weight and employment. However, I have included wanting to know your voting record since 2000, and a...

Covid HYPERchondria

My brain is spinning into butter from fear of everything: kitchen counters, gas pumps, door knobs, elevators, other humans and, the deadliest of all, my own hands. Did I wash them? If I can’t remember, I immediately wash them again. I am certain I no longer have fingerprints. I...
