Mama’s taking off this week! I’ve got to tend to my bunions, catch up on my reading (The Globe and various word puzzle books), and idly sit around watching Obama plummet in the polls. So don’t say I’m not busy! I can barely squeeze all this activity into just seven days! And it’s not like I didn’t write a spanking new column too. You’ll be served it, with a hint of bitters and a carcinogenic cherry on top, this Wednesday and we can all feel alive again. Until then, if your ears are burning, it’s probably because someone threw battery acid at them.
