How do you describe Roz Warren in two words? We’d go with, “blogger extraordinaire!” Read more from Roz on her website.
You can spend a lifetime figuring out who you really are. At 60, I’m finally closing in on the truth. At the very least, I know who I’m not.
I’ve noticed that the media loves to sum people up with just two words. Like, “Internet billionaire.” Or, “famous chef.” I recently began collecting some sobriquets that will never be used to describe me. For good or ill, I’m never going to be a:
YouTube pioneer, or
Of course, when it comes to a few of these, I do come close. Blonde chanteuse? I am (with salon assistance) a blonde. And the toddlers who attend story-time at the library where I work adore my rendition of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider.”
And while I’m not exactly a Superstar Swimmer, I’m still in the pool every day, executing my plodding but consistent breast stroke.
Disgraced Cyclist? No thanks. I don’t need performance enhancing drugs to enjoy a ride around the neighborhood on my one-speeder.

What about you? If you could describe yourself to the world with just two words, what would they be? Amazing mom? Stellar wit? Fantastic lover?
(Of course, if you’re having a bad day, you might want to go with “Exploited wage-slave,“ “Problem drinker,” or “Unhappy homemaker.”)
Go for it! Share your two words in the Comments section. Be as honest (or as delusional) as you want. Here’s your chance to establish yourself as a “Piccolo virtuoso,” “Investment whiz,” “Unsung genius” or “World-class bodybuilder.”
Roz Warren writes for the New York Times, the Funny Times, the Christian Science Monitor, the Jewish Forward and the Huffington Post. And she‘s been featured on the Today Show. (Twice!) Her 13th humor book, ”Our Bodies, Our Shelves: A Collection Of Library Humor," is available on Amazon.
It’s perfect time to make a few plans for the long run and it is time to be happy.
I’ve learn this put up and if I may I want to recommend you few interesting things
or suggestions. Maybe you could write next articles relating to this article.
I wish to read more things approximately it!

I can't help it--it was the first thing that came to mind this time! Other things came to mind the first time I did this years ago, but this time it was "hot shit'.
