Laura just sent me this wonderful photo of herself as she takes a leisurely stroll down the beach.
Okay, I know she almost tricked you with that photo. What was it that tipped you off? Was it the long straight brown hair, the perfect thin body, the age, or the fact that this girl is actually able to stroll?
Laura thought she was being pretty crafty, but she can't fool us. We weren't born yesterday.
The truth is that Laura wasted half her morning doing the New York Times crossword puzzle. Have you ever done the Thursday puzzle?
Laura is so brilliant that she works the puzzle in pen ( that is a total bunch of malarkey. She makes so many mistakes, that there are holes in that cheap, thin stuff they try to pass off as newsprint)
So, Laura would have been with us today, but she needed that walk on the beach (she is actually popping a couple of aspirins) in order to soothe her completely fried brain.
I promise that she will be back with us tomorrow. In the meantime, if you have any inside information to help her cheat on the crossword, it would be greatly appreciated.
