The Other D-Day

My friend Judy is adding on to her house – or rather, a bunch of guys is doing it for her. So far, her biggest chore has been deciding whether to go for in-floor heating in her new bathroom.

Stressful for her.

But there’s an up side.

The day the excavators, dump trucks, diggers and drivers showed up to break ground, she emailed me with a two-for-the-price-of-one: a great Freudian slip that’s also a delightful new entry for the next edition of James Lipton’s An Exaltation of Larks.

Today, as I celebrate my dad and all the other wonderful XY chromosomes in my life, I wish everyone what Judy has: a backyard fun of men.
