Two good friends of mine had baby girls the day before yesterday. You'd think that since they were born on the same day, it will be super easy for me to remember their birthday(s). But I am so bad about remembering birthdays, that I am certain I will not. Last year I sent my brother-in-law's birthday present 3 months late...and his birthday is the same day as mine.
I believe that women's lib means I can live however I choose - even if that means staying at home, baking cookies from scratch and knitting baby booties all the livelong day. I believe that discriminating against anyone based on their color is racism - even if they're white. I believe that the bad auditions on American Idol are the end result of twenty years of focusing on self esteem - "you are perfect no matter what" - piled on top of a century of growing up consuming music rather than making it together as a family. I believe the children are our future. I believe in miracles. I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.
