Today was my employer’s annual volunteer appreciation luncheon. I work closely with our many volunteers, and enjoy this event each year. So, this morning, I took extra time to look all cute and everything; very professional dress and blazer, pumps and “flipped” hair. Five of the older-than-average folks (i.e., volunteers average age 81) got into an argument over who they thought I looked like with my flip-do. I cannot make this stuff up, kids.
For the sake of my anonymity, let’s just call me ‘Mary’, as in, Mary Tyler Moore, who also had a flip, when she lived with Dick Van Patten – you remember – when they were in “Eight is Enough” on TV? Which was right after they starred in ”Mary Poppins”. Or was she in that “Airport” movie with Van Heflin? (If you don’t know who these people are, hang-up now).
