Not My Best Move

Posted by mwallach on May 27, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere

Dear That’s Life, You know it’s bad when a conversation with your spouse begins, “I just want you to remember just how much you love me when I tell you what I did.” Unfortunately for my husband, he has heard that line before. Even more unfortunate is that there is no telling what I may [...]

Not the Craziest Thing About Me

Posted by mwallach on May 26, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, New To You

Dear That’s Life, A small but elite group of courageous individuals have been amassing data and working tirelessly on a list that, while not top secret, is not yet open to the public. The individuals toiling over this work have an inside track into the mysterious workings of a mysterious mind. While many do not [...]

Punk’d but without Ashton

Posted by mwallach on May 24, 2011 in Uncategorized

Dear That’s Life, As you can probably imagine, I like to play practical jokes. Years ago, I played a prank on a co-worker who I knew had some unpaid parking tickets and therefore had a warrant issued for her arrest. While that was enough to make me laugh, she did not find it funny. In an [...]

Talk To Strangers

Posted by mwallach on May 22, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere

Writing a column like this one would not work for just anyone, but it does for me. To begin with, crazy follows me everywhere and somehow the most mundane of experiences turn into significant moments from which I am able to tell a story the likes of which could not have happened to normal people. [...]

I Want to be Forever Young

Posted by mwallach on May 22, 2011 in My Kids, New To You

Dear That’s Life, This may sound completely crazy, even for me, but I often forget that I have twins. Having one boy and one girl, with completely different personalities and no shared resemblances, it often slips my mind that they came as a package deal. We have also always made an effort not to refer to [...]

Small Talk

Posted by mwallach on May 17, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, My Kids

Dear That’s Life, “You look good for having six kids,” she said.  It is not the first time someone has said that to me and the exhausted feeling I get every time I hear it does not get old. I know it is meant as a compliment, but because it seems to inform on what [...]

Reality Bites

Posted by mwallach on May 16, 2011 in New To You

Dear That’s Life, Seriously: how lucky are those Palins? If only mom and daughter had their own reality shows, that would have been enough. If only Tina Fey’s incredible impression of Sarah existed, that, too, would have been enough. Now, however, with Bristol’s jaw reconstructed, she is also a dead ringer for Snooki. Talk about [...]

Tooth Pain Stinks

Posted by mwallach on May 11, 2011 in New To You

Dear That’s Life, There is no need to read this entire article. The moral of the story is that tooth pain does not go away. Sorry for the spoiler. A little over a week before Pesach, I began experiencing pain in a tooth that already had a crown from a previous root canal. The pain [...]

Happy Mother’s Day

Posted by mwallach on May 9, 2011 in My Kids, New To You

Dear That’s Life, I love Mother’s Day. Even more than my birthday, which I truly enjoy, there is something about Mother’s Day that automatically makes me smile. The cynics in my life would refer to it as a ‘Hallmark Holiday’ and claim that had it not been for someone wanting to sell cards, this day [...]

Ground Zero

Posted by mwallach on May 6, 2011 in New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, To be honest, I was not sure what made me go. Something spoke to me today as the world awoke to hear the news that Osama bin Laden was dead and I felt oddly drawn to visit Ground Zero. Remembering the morning of September 11th, how my husband and I listened to [...]

Okay. I’m an Idiot.

Posted by mwallach on May 4, 2011 in Crazy Follows Me Everywhere, New To You

Dear That’s Life, Years ago, my mother had a friend who owned a blouse with gold-plated buttons which had to be removed before the shirt could be laundered. The intent was that if you were wealthy enough to purchase the item, you must also have someone on staff responsible for removing the buttons then sewing them [...]

5/1/11

Posted by mwallach on May 2, 2011 in My Kids, New To You, New Yorkers

Dear That’s Life, It was one of those moments that you will always remember where you were when you heard the news. The death of Osama bin Laden is a triumph of good over evil, a victory for the United States and those who fight with us, and a moment of comfort for all those [...]

Speak Your Mind

Posted by mwallach on May 2, 2011 in My Kids

Dear That’s Life, “Use your words!” is what I say to my children when they are frustrated and upset over trivial matters. It is often a greater issue that is aggravating, but not something they can readily articulate. I have also used that line with some adults, when something needs to be said, and instead [...]
