...she asked me to be in one of her magazines! She heard about this small-town-Ohio-mother who can cook better than her, who has the most pristine house and, Oh wait, wrong magazine.
She heard about this small-town-Ohio-mother who is the picture of health - glowing skin, shiny hair & rock hard abs. She was going to put me on the cover, but decided to be on it herself, with her daughter. So I'm inside, and you know what? My mother is too. Me & Mom. Mom & Me & Martha. We're on page 84 & 85: Healthy At Every Age.
In the 30 age bracket, Martha's experts say I need to take these precautions regarding my health. Build bone, have Safe Sex, (not a problem, I try to limit my sexual partners) Eat broccoli, drink only 4-5 ounces of red wine, repopulate my bowels? What does repopulate mean? I'll bet my grandmother knows, I'll be sure and ask her.
The picture of myself is terribly terrible. I'll start with the fact that at the time the photo was taken I'd been away from my nursing baby for 3 days and my breasts look like they could burst at any moment. I don't know if my top could have stretched anymore, and my experience watching America's Next Top Model tells me I should have stretched my neck out more and not smiled like a clown. But seriously, how exciting! Chances are this will have been the only time ever in my whole life that I will ever be in shiny, glossy, magazine. Whew.
