Once upon a time, I wanted to be Mary Tyler Moore. Not the real MTM, but rather, I wanted to be Mary Richards, the character she played on her television show in the 1970s.
As a high school girl in the throes of some serious teen angst, I'd daydream about working in a newsroom, living in my own cute apartment, surrounding myself with quirky-yet-lovable coworkers and friends.
Actually, all that is true of my life now, with the exception of the apartment. I own a villa and share it with a quirky-yet-lovable husband.
