life among the savages
fascinating though i found it, it still took me an endless time to finish the gulag archipelago. a busy time at work did not help with that. so now it's time for something a little lighter.
i had the lunch almost ready and the diapers washed, along with the little shirts and the nightgowns and the soakers and the cotton blankets, and they were all drying on the line (and i don't care what anyone says, that's a morning's work, when you consider that i had also made brownies and emptied the ashtrays).

not too much has changed since 1948, although i don't own any ashtrays and i can't remember the last time i made brownies...
