MS. BENTLEY WROTE: I knew I was a Formerly when I walked into my father-in-law’s house (for a family dinner) sporting my new short and (I thought) hip hair style. The first thing that flew out my (younger) brother in law’s mouth was, “wow, you got a new hair-do! It’s so *mom-ish*.” Yikes! All I could hear were the words echoing in my head…*mom-ish*…*mom-ish*…*MOM-ISH*!!! Not the look I was going for. Sadly, I knew that if I had been 21 with the same short style it would no doubt have been dubbed “sassy” or “hip”. Ah, well. That’s life kiddos.
