  • At five-foot, one inch, I'm little. I'm not as little as Phyllis Gorski Houghton, but littler than Laura Isaacs - and she's little.

    Years ago, Randy Newman wrote a song about short people. He said we have "little baby legs" and we "stand so low" and that big people like him have to pick us up just to say hello.

    He said we've got "little cars that go beep, beep, beep" and little voices that go "peep, peep, peep."

    As a little person, I also have abnormally little hands and tiny crooked fingers. I wear the ruby chip ring that my husband wore when he was maybe 3 or 4.

  • The other day a friend announced that she had "broken up" with her daughter. She laughed as she said it, but there was a hint of seriousness to her words. At any rate, she was obviously upset.

    "What did your daughter say about it?" I asked. I couldn't imagine a mother actually doing something like that, although I'm sure it crosses most moms' minds at least occasionally.

    "Oh, I didn't tell her!" she said. "I broke up with her secretly. Besides, I don't think it's possible for a mom to break up with a child."

  • The other day I overheard two young women discussing relationships. From what I gathered, people their age (mid 20s) don't date the way I've always understood dating. Instead, they go through a progression of stages.

    If I have this correct, first you "talk with" a person over a period of time, then you move into "hanging out." After that comes "going out" and then I think you move into "being in a relationship."

    I'm so 53.

    Currently, I'm reading a book about generational differences, "Mind the Gap!" It describes and defines five generations of people alive today:
