The full title of the book is Being a Grown-up: A User’s Manual for the Real World. My first thought was that, despite my rather advancing years, I’ve never felt like a grown-up. (Well, maybe when I acquired kids.) Then I figured that maybe that’s what I have to offer, and now, a day later, I’ve written and submitted a short essay entitled “Everyone is afraid. Everyone is pretending.” Let’s see what happens. Oh, and by the way, in case you’re interested in submitting, here’s the link: http://beingagrownupbook.blogspot.ca/.
