Meandering anecdotes and an occasional incisive comment, courtesy of an overeducated, feminist former-professional, who is continually outsmarted by her overly-gifted children and genius spouse and who seeks refuge in books, cocktails, and the occasional Xanax.

a cutting remark
First grader Lola was pretending to tell someone off. Putting her hands on her little hips, she sneered, "You wanna organize a sock drawer, SUCKAH?"
awesome. i would also use it as a come-on line: "hey sailor, wanna organize a sock drawer?"
was she also brandishing an uneaten stalk of asparagus at the time?
Once I said, "I'm gonna take you down." to my brother in law who was pestering me at a big family dinner. My 5 year old daughter piped in, "I'm gonna take you down to the post office."
That does sound threatening.
Ooh, down to the post office. Good one!
hah. classy and classic!
