'Going Rogue' Goes Rogue

And, in case you didn't get the other book reference (comme moi), here's a linky.

Yikes! Was that rachel M that the book shot? And if so - what's Rachel doing with a fifth of Jaggermeister.

Let's hope that when the going gets this weird that the weird will just Go.

Bravo Jimmy Fallon team!

Thanks Fern Hill.

Tom Degan's Daily Rant said...

From reading excerpts of the book, one conclusion that is unavoidable is the woman's jaw-dropping shallowness. When telling the story of how she was confronted at one point with news reports that she and her husband Todd were going to divorce, one would think (indeed one would hope) that she would offer for the reader's contemplation a heartfelt description of her abiding love for her husband; how their union could not be tossed aside like some disposable camera - that she and Todd took their wedding vows seriously. No, there was none of that....

"Dang, I thought. Divorce Todd? Have you SEEN Todd???"

TRANSLATION: If Todd gains fifty pounds, he's toast.

Thirteen years into their marriage, Eleanor Roosevelt was confronted with her husband's affair with her social secretary (and distant relative of mine - I come from a long line of home wreckers) Lucy Paige Mercer. After contemplating divorce, it was decided that they would continue their union. Years later, she confided to her friend, Joesph Lash, the reasons for saving their marriage. They were many and complicated. This, I can assure you, was not one of those reasons:

"Dang, I thought. Divorce Franklin? Have you SEEN Franklin???"

Ah, substance!

My guess is that Todd has some personal or cultural resilience that allows him to float above Sarah's habitual boondoggles. Whatever that quality or capacity is, we may never know exactly why and how it operates
