Sex, love and paperclips
Being social has its benefits. While out and about this weekend, someone actually asked me what I write about. I started blathering on about "life, the universe, etc.," -- as you do -- when the guy sitting next to me, the husband of a friend, burst out "Men! She writes about men!" Then he turned to me: "Don't you?"
It was a moment reminiscent of Tonnie's "Do you write about your culture?" In a lightning strike of clarity, I realized: Yes, I do. I do write about men*. And sex. And buttons. And gloves. And runaway brides. And, now, like Tonnie, I know it.
*Hm, will have to post one of the ones about men.
