Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

My big sister loves me, this I know.

My big sis, my WAAAAY older big sis ('sup, Kimmie?), called me last night to tell me that she has been reading my site, and has come to the edifying conclusion that TGIM should begin calling me Moll. Honestly, I was not quite sure where she was going with this, but my interest was sufficiently peaked. Then, suddenly, random, sketchy images of film noir blew through my mind.

(Cue up foreboding background music here)

Ominous images of old gangster flicks full of dark, shadowy alleyways, mobster's with monster machine guns, gum chewing secretaries with pantyhosed legs up to there, cynical private dicks and their sleazy offices backlit by blinking neon signs, and the Moll, the Gun Moll, the quintessential gangster's girlfriend. And I'm thinking, "Ooooh, TGIM should so totally call me Moll! Bitchin'!"

Because that would be cool, right? My big sister gets me, right? She has totally captured my faux bad girl with a heart of gold wannabe image, right? RIGHT?!

It funny how all this hemispherical connecting of dots can happen in seconds, you know? SECONDS! So she's still talking and I'm all, "Moll! That's sweet! Awesome idea, my big sistah!" and she's like (in her dry, way-cool-junior voice), "Yah, MOL. My Old Lady."

Oh.

RUDE.

My seconds were spent conjuring up bits of images of Moll Flanders. If I remember correctly, she was a prostitute.

Hmm, perhaps you should tell your sister that MOL stands for Multiple Orgasms Lately. That'll shut her up...
