    Too Old And Taken

    I am old enough to know that a married man is not available and you should not tell him if you have a crush on him or make suggestions that could lead to the two of you being together without others around. But now I have and I must stop what is going on in case it goes too far...

    I Am An Adult

    HAVING CHILDREN PUTS MAJOR EMPHASIS ON THAT WORD: ADULT... BEING AN ADULT MEANS 'DOING' WHAT U NEED TO DO, WHAT'S BEST FOR U AND, IN MY CASE, MY FAMILY CAUSE WHAT'S BEST FOR ME IS, ULTIMATELY, BEST FOR THEM. THAT MEANS LETTING GO OF THINGS THAT CAN HARM U MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY...

    Still Too Young To Care

    I wear my miniskirts in winter.  I own my own saxophone.  I wear my high heels on escalators. I date men too old, women too young, and boys too committed.  I eat my lamb pink in the middle and I dance alone in the lobby of restaurants.  I go out without a scarf, and I walk...
