I have a notorious little habit of showing up late. Indeed, it seems to be an ingrained Pomerantz tradition. As in, “Oh—we’re eating at noon but tell Pomerantz to come at 10 so at least they’ll be somewhat on time!”

 

Split Ends

Riva Pomerantz

A Friday night guest felt compelled to serve me up a post-chicken helping of this succinct piece of advice: Make Gila divorce Mottie. If you’ve been following my serialized story, Charades, you’ll know exactly who Gila and Mottie are and also exactly why my earnest young guest wanted them to get divorced. For those who need a bit of insider information, Mottie is an abusive husband who ran away from his family and community after making an error with grave ramifications, rather than face his mistakes.
