The only reason I know what it looks like is thanks to my friend Google Images. I never did get a wool crepe suit. In my current life as a food writer, owning any kind of suit, much less a wool crepe suit, is even less relevant than it was before!

Boy, have things CHANGED (!).

My pleasure. Give it a go. Using the green seeds brightens the color of the pesto, too. (Certain nuts can make pesto look a bit muddy.)

You sound like a very balanced, wise, and thoughtful person. I'm glad to type to you.

I refused to go out and buy a new suit. I didn't know much, but I knew that that wouldn't have been a good use of my money. Plus, part of me didn't want to give her the satisfaction of following advice that was so offhand and yet so incredibly specific. It's like she just assumed that every working woman had a closet overflowing with wool crepe suits. The funny thing is, I could go out and buy one now, but I would have absolutely no occasion to wear it. Maybe I'll just romp around my home office in it. Toss it on when I go to pick up my kids or hit the farmers' market...

Even just thinking about driving in LA -- all these years later -- gives me the major willies. Seriously, I need to go lie down. (but thank you. i appreciate the compliment about the photo, especially from you!)

I LOVE THIS. We are one.

I have a feeling you looked stylish and professional and put-together and thoroughly of-the-moment. Me? Not so very much.

The thing is, if I'd actually bought a wool crepe suit, I don't think I could have carried it off. I would have looked like I was trying, and failing, to be Melanie Griffith in Working Girl or something. But I like that you called me a Warrior. Look, I'm even capitalizing it to give it added emphasis!

I knew I liked you, but not I like you more. Although for some reason this makes me nervous about getting in a car with you the next time we're together, which, I believe, will be soon.

And to think this was my first encounter with him. I mourn the lost years when I didn't have him guiding me.

Save me a seat.

Cynthia, thank you. I feel sad that it resonates with so many of us, but there's comfort in the universality of those feelings as well. If only we could go back to our younger selves and give them a comforting hug, or at least a really warm chocolate chip cookie. x

If anything's a lose-lose, you're right that it's that. xoxoback

At least you liked the music on your trip, presumably.

You know it, sisterfriend.

The two combinations (kindness / consideration & apricots / cherries) love you back, so win-win.

The longest way, happily. Thank you!

WE grown ups have to sow kindness like wildflowers throughout the next generation.

It's not awkward at all, Molly. It's perfectly-timed, in fact. Synchronicity. Also, hello!
