I was listening this morning to the local NPR station and the Arkansas Biography segment came on. Today's featured Arkansan was...(drumroll please) Helen Gurley Brown. I admit, I read Sex and the Single Girl in college, along with Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique. On my own, mind you, as this gender specialist has never taken a women's studies course. (Shock, horror.) I thought Sex (the book!) was quaint and amusing; hard to believe it was one of the key manifestos of the sexual revolution. I was surprised by HGB's origins, although I shouldn't be - I suppose Bill Clinton is the other famously libidinous Arkansan.

I was finally reunited with my bag last night after 9:30pm, courtesy of an elderly gentleman who got lost several times (never mind that I live on a major thoroughfare) and who still had a number of bags to deliver. As Moroccans say: meskin ("poor thing").

Now I worry about everyone squinting to see my "magic knicker" lines....

I don't know why talking about underwear is so funny...

Glad to hear you've been reunited with your luggage. It's upsetting being separated from your things, but doubly so when it's your underwear!

If all of the rest of our stuff was here I wouldn't have felt so panicky. Normally I keep my travel stuff separate from my regular stuff. I travel so much that it's just easier to keep doubles of everything including the magic knickers. Alas, I was thwarted this time!
