"A Stepmother, Losing Her Marbles"
Iíd long lost the fun of the game. I saw only how Iíd used the game like the smiling faÁade of a carnival barker, the mask I wore while I tried to figure out who the hell I was. See the happy new wife, still having plenty of sex! Plunk. See the smiling stepmother, proving to all those who warned her off ó Do you know what youíre getting into? Those kids will ruin your marriage. Have you lost your senses, your marbles, your mind? ó that she can love, and be loved by, someone elseís children.
