We need to talk…I’m checking into explosives felling training right now. Interested? I am.


I waitressed for 18 years. You do the math. That must mean I did it while I was doing everything else…including raising three kids on my own, going to college AND developing a career. You bet your ass. If you have the right attitude, you can even get one hell of a lot of excellent writing material while you’re at it, and a good paycheck. I once popped a kid on the forehead with the back of my hand and told him to develop some manners. I was filling his water glass and he slapped my hand away because he hadn’t asked for more water. I do believe the whole table threw out a $20 tip over that incident. The kid sulked out of there with his buddies kicking his butt.

It’s all in the way you decide to conduct yourself. Do what you need to do but don’t let anybody treat you like you’re less of a woman than you are.

Rock on little woman.
