Wife, mom and corporate peon a little too comfortably ensconced in the Boston 'burbs.
Beautiful. And, as someone who's spent a lot of time in downtown Dallas, very resonant.
This was a great interview. You know, though, that people do like living in Boston, right? Even rock musicians?
All Satie's piano pieces are soothing, delightful, or both. The titles are equally delightful: "I Want You," "Desiccated Embryos," "Sketches and Annoyances of a Fat Wooden Mannequin"...
@Claire Zulkey I wouldn't murder her, but I might engage in some "accidental" soda spilling.
@Dave Bry Also priceless: "The 'Eat Pray Love' of vaginal self-consumption."
I dunno, I don't have to know what "twerking" is.
@Gef the Talking Mongoose ...and you get to pay on the way in AND on the way out.
Friendships are fragile, even when your best friend isn't dating your sister or your other best friend. Friends move to different cities or countries, or go to grad school, or get married and start families, and suddenly the distance between you is amplified by time and you can't complete each other's thoughts anymore.
My high school best friend and I were so close, and remained so even several years after graduation. But then life events pulled us in different directions, and we grew apart. I went to her wedding 2 years ago, and even though we live outside the same city about an hour apart, we may not spend much time together before we die.
All this to say, take Polly's advice and cherish your friend (and sister) as much as possible.
MARILYNNE ROBINSON! Wish I could teleport to New York for the evening.
