A Guide for the Extra Woman

If anyone sees this book in a used bookstore…please pick it up for me (I’ll pay you back). It appears to be out of print.

It pains me to think of all the times I could have countered peoples’ questions and quips about me not yet being married (at the positively spinster-iffic old age of 30) with “I AM THE EXTRA WOMAN!” I don’t know who coined that phrase, if it even was a phrase, but for some reason I’m fabulously entertained by it.

Hmm…the following excerpt seems to indicate that we Extra Women are in high demand!

No dahhhhh-ling, I simply cannot accept all of the nightly dinner requests and Sunday proposals! Why, I can hardly remember the last Sunday I wasn’t proposed to in some fashion.

Must I spend some time alone? Ah, glad to hear it. If the book says so, it’s got to be true. So I will now resume my life as an introverted art, science and culture geek.

  1. It’s back in print! Check Amazon. Tho they changed “Extra Woman” to “Single Woman.”

      Ah, thanks for the info. Unfortunately, the appeal (for me) was the ludicrous term “Extra Woman!”

  2. She’s feeding a SEAL in Central Park?!?! WTF?!

      Yep…as you know, Central Park is FLOODED with seals…and they gravitate toward “Extra Women” immediately.
