For days I’ve been engaged in the only exercise I can manage with one leg in a cast. It’s called “mater tossing” and I discovered it while fighting fruit flies. Everytime I discover a tomato past its prime (usually of the cherry variety), I toss it from my back door into a planter containing basil which is located about ten feet away.
This is day 19 of my unexpected incarceration for a crime I committed in the 1970s and 80s.
I long for the “outside” as much as any hardened criminal. My crime? The serial wearing of stilettos for two decades which turned my left foot into the shape of Peter Pan’s.
I woke up this morning after retiring for the third time from the 9-5 world and just getting over a little minor surgery. I had a horrifying thought. I didn’t know who I was or what I was doing here. (Probably the pain medication.)
But no, all my life, I’d had clear roles to fill: wife, mother, daughter, chauffer, editor, marketing director, housekeeper, chief cook and bottle washer…I could go on with an exhaustive list that makes me wonder where I found the time to get everything done.

This is so fantastic I can’t even believe its true. There is a new business in town that does nothing but deliver cookies! You read that right – Insomnia Cookies delivers a wide variety of fresh baked cookies right to your doorstep
That’s fortunate for me since I have a cast on one leg and can’t drive. I’ve been out of cookies for several months but had a craving that had me about to call a cab to take me to the Piggly Wiggly.
