The diners at the tables near us turn to look, so we shush each other, giggling like schoolgirls.

It’s Mom’s Night Out and the four of us are lettin’ off steam, swillin’ cocktails, and skewering our husbands, our kids, and ourselves. No one’s safe from our mockery and teasing, including each other.

For a comedic romp on a shopping expedition where the only clothing sizes left are “hummingbird or mastodon” — you’ll enjoy reading One Size Fits None. I could definitely relate when Marcia says, “It never fails that by the time I get to the checkout counter, the angry woman in front of me with three returns and a missing receipt was once the president of her high school debate team.”

Yappers, Poopers, and Barbie Dolls? Where in the world is Marcia now? At the gym, of course, listing the 8 People I Love to Hate at the Gym. Have YOU encountered any of these people?
