The Cat’s In The Cradle

I know why the vintage song, The Cat’s In The Cradle by Harry Chapin always makes me cry–even still to this day. I grew up with a dad who wasn’t there. He and mom split before I was born, so growing up, I knew him, but he was never around. So I online cigarette store…

When I was Young

Three times this week, it was said to me something like, “You’re getting old.” Was I alarmed? Yes. Especially, since one of those comments came from a hairstylist that I was using for the first time. “And, here’s your tip!” (I didn’t cut her short.) Was I offended?
