    Just thinking of a video we watched at prenatal class. The subject was a long-time midwife and mother. Her advice to mothers of newborns was to pat yourself on the back for every accomplishment, no matter how small, chief being, “I got dressed today. It was a good day.” I never knew that this would be ever more true a couple of decades later during a pandemic. There you go! Everything I needed to know in life came from prenatal class.

    Oh, the Totokaelo article made me sad! I, too, “used to be punk rock,” or as a friend of mine from those days, insists, “when we were cool.”

    The Totokaelo article is great: “The average female wore no makeup and steeply expensive shoes that could be mistaken by the uninitiated for inexpensive shoes.”

    One of my great style triumphs: I was mistaken for a Totokaelo salesperson one time when I was shopping there. Considering how rude the other customer was, I was glad not to be employed there…

    The Patricia Marx essay in The New Yorker is great! Now I’m off to read more of the drunk (but funny) Susan Orleans thread on Twitter.

    Always love the links. I did peek at the Totokaelo article. I have always loved their selection of clothing, but never felt brave enough to wear them. And thank you again for asking about what people are reading as I now have a long list of “to read” books that I’m excited to delve into! Have a great weekend everyone! Stay safe!!
