  1. My sari is not sheer, and the directions I was given was to tie a string around my waist and do the pleating and tucking. The sari seems like a garment that might come undome easily!

    I read “the history and science of marriage” as I am waiting for my new lens. I feel blind! So, when I opened the link and saw “Meringue” in larger letters, my first thought was the moment might pass and wouldn’t Cool Whip be more suitable? Yes, I hope I get glasses soon!

    My tracking device will travel wrapped in heavy duty foil. I do nothing wild and crazy and nothing subversive, no protesting in about ten years. I just resent anyone keeping track of me for any reason.
