Now channeling my inner Joan Crawford. ‘No… wire… hangers. What’s wire hangers doing in this closet when I told you: no wire hangers EVER? I work and work ’till I’m half-dead, and I hear people saying, “She’s getting old.” And what do I get? A daughter… who cares as much about the beautiful dresses I give her… as she cares about me. What’s wire hangers doing in this closet? Answer me” (Mommie Dearest, 1981). LOL ok I’m done. Till next time. ~T.
