Letter 2/Dear Skipper: Where in the World Is Your Pause Button?

How can you go from a winning soccer game and dinner in the kitchen nook to such crazy behavior?

Dennis the Menace with Alice, his mom. Dennis is 5 1/2; his mom is 30, tops. But you, Skip, are 13 — and this old Alice is 59. I ‘m not your mom (we couldn’t legally adopt you), but I definitely mother you. I hope one day you see that. Cartoonist: Hank Ketcham. Image found HERE.
  1. Throwing a small apple at me three times.
  2. Spitting in my hair, my freshly blown-dry, smooth, salon hair, as you walked into the kitchen.
  3. Intentionally farting right by me.
  4. Doing other gross things, with song lyrics, etc.

Magazine maven, craft coffee lover, legal guardian. Passionate about fashion and lipstick — though it may not look that way when I dash to the supermarket.
