Then, I reach for a David Sedaris book, or reread Tina Fey' 'Bossy Pants,' or another, an oldie, "My Life and Hard Times' by James Thurber.

Because there is no such thing as growing old or having enough money or keeping up with the Jones's, because the stories that I dream up often feel more real to me than the heating bill sitting on the table next to me.

It involved loud squalling, bare knuckle fighting, laughing, and general hysteria. Since six of us were less than two yea
