I sold ammo for Walmart, all along thinking “Bonnie, it’s just a paycheck.” I’m such a pathetic liar. But I needed that piece of paper to survive past due to paster due. As a forty something divorced mother with a college education and a thin res… Read full post »
I am a liberal Democrat. ProChoice. ProMarriageEquality. Against the death penalty, nuclear power plants and fracking. I am voting for Mitt Romney. There. I just admitted what I’ve been grappling with for over four years. How a New York City Jewish moth… Read full post »
Which man, with salt and pepper hair, is the one for this writer?

The Vegetarian and the Deer Hunters, orginally, appeared on ModernLoveRejects.com. Hunting season will be starting soon up in these areas. I, a vegetarian, forgot "Trucks" had steak and ketchup breath when we kissed. How could I answer to Bambi? What would you have done?

I drove 30 minutes to the county’s only social services office in my twenty year old Chevy that got seven miles per gallon. I nicknamed the car my “Mercedes,” feeling so down on myself that that would be the closest I would ever come to having my Benz. The Caprice was… Read full post »
I retched over the toilet and heaved a whole bunch of nothing. I slumped to the bathroom floor and watched a roach run by. As I pulled myself up, the nausea returned. I opened the window and looked out from my fourth floor tenement apartment onto Ludlow Street, heart/… Read full post »
People friend me on Facebook because they think I am the Bonnie Bernstein from ESPN. They see my name and immediately believe I am the one who announces football games, analyzes a play and interviews the quarterback. A fan recently fawned over me saying, “Nice job on WPIX this morning, great… Read full post »
Time Served At Walmart -- Paroled After An Injury And Enforced Malnutrition
Pauly mentioned “when pretty women meet me they always move away.” I guess I, a divorced forty something woman forever looking down on myself, appeared awfully appealing to him in that dark restaurant. And, coincidentally, I was moving the next day. Pauly loved my boots.… Read full post »
