Gonna Send 5 Copies to My Mother
Guess which of these headlines from the cover of the April issue of Good Housekeeping goes with my essay on page 217:
WIN! A Maid for a Year!
6 Metabolism Mistakes
America's Sweetheart Shares Her Painful Past
"She Drives Me Crazy!"
The answer is none! And yet somehow, all! This is my third time being featured in the magazine, by the way. They are very nice to me, the Hearsts. Last month they featured my friend Alice. You never know who will pop up there. Why don't you subscribe?
In the meantime, you can find the April issue on sale now at every neighborhood grocery store in the country but mine, apparently. I happened across a copy in the drugstore yesterday, and flipped it open to see my husband's smiling face. My first thought was how his mom would have busted with pride. The cover of Rolling Stone magazine wouldn't have phased her. But a picture of her golden, impossible boy in Good Housekeeping? Big time.
So this one's for you, Millie. Thanks for letting me have him.
