Instantaneously, I'll have to wear long flowered skirts, sensible Mary Janes and flowing blouses buttoned up to the top button. My hair will be cut in a ear length bob and I'll have tiny gold studs for earrings.
I'll throw away my red lipstick and decide that contact lenses are too much work. I'll probably have a knee brace, maybe some bifocals. It's going to be swell.
And in News Around the World, No More German Bears
Gotta love the Germans! (Sorry, I had a bad experience with a German co-worker who screamed German swear words at me and made me cry at work so I'm biased.)
This is a Washington Post article (Fed-Up Germany Kills Its Only Wild Bear). The article is really well-written. My favorite paragraph:
Although Bruno didn't hurt any people, he was accused of eating sheep and plundering beekeepers' hives. He also gave people a fright in the village of Kochel am See recently when he ambled around a cafe, sat on the stoop of the police station and snacked on a little girl's pet guinea pig.
