Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers
A Saturday in your early 40s. before these there were stories of Saturdays in your early 30s with all your baby, toddler, preschool worries Now you have older kids and a Migraine you just wake with it - must be the pressure - barometric finally give in take some excedrin and then you live again Barnes & Noble buying books time but you also buy slime, expensive chocolate mousse and a blondie at snack time and, admit it, a coconut milk vanilla latte - that's sublime Overhear: someone asking about Wishtree - "Is that in the Magic treehouse series?" (Nope) What is it about that desperate need to tell a stranger that the book in their hand is one they should read? Rush home so you can take the almost 16-ager secondhand clothes shopping where you hold her t-shirts and jeans, calmly trying to explain: "Yes, the line is long but even if they are only $16, you should definitely try them on." These are some of the stories of a Saturday in your early forties
