from Vicki Wilson, author of Love, The Finger Bullets, and The Widow:

  1. “Oh, for God’s sake, it’s only five things, how hard can it be?”
  2. [Whispered]“Are you sure this Tree Swing magazine is, well, legit?”
  3. “The lawn is not going to mow itself.”
  4. “Hmm, I’m not sure people will really ‘get’ that.”
  5. “It’s okay, honey, but did you read the other ones? I mean, they’re, like, good.”
