How to wake up lazy skin
Miss Grimke: Richard Bradley is like that fly Obama whacked. Do you want us to swat him for you?
DGF: Who is Richard Bradley?
Miss Grimke: He blah-blahs about how you won't talk to the press about Harvard's going broke and other things.
DGF: Oh that guy. I'll contribute to history's first draft when I'm good and ready. Too much is at stake on too many fronts and too much is still too raw. Nothing is simple enough for sound bites and being second-guessed by people who consider themselves experts on this and that. The potential consequences of distortions are too dire.
Miss Grimke: Okay, whatever. I read in the FT that you should not use moisturizer because it makes your skin lazy.
DGF: Do tell. Well I don't use moisturizer and my skin is already incredibly lazy. It just sits there and sags.
Miss Grimke: I quit using it for about a week and my skin finally woke up and nagged me about neglecting this blog.
DGF: Well whoop de whoop.
Miss Grimke: You're not in a very good mood are you.
DGF: No comment.
