Note to Kate Griffin, aged twenty-something

Women of 54 are not old women. No, no matter how many times you call them 'old'. No, even if they're working-class immigrant widows who've had hard lives. Look at your mother, for heaven's sake, supposing your mother isn't still in her forties.

Also I'm sensing a certain retread of a certain schtick from Minority Council. Agreed, it delighted me in Minority Council, but not if it's going to become a default.

Otherwise I have taken half a percocet and am waiting for the blissful cessation of body ache and/or the beginning of hallucinations, whichever.
