EPIGRAMS FOR A LADY   If you hate it when your son is preternaturally boy, freight him with your trunk’s warp.

Flawless          Sheila is fat, real fat. Sheila calls herself that. When Sheila stood up and introduced herself to her Women’s Studies class, the professors’ mouth dropped so far and so fast that she couldn’t keep her snack from falling out and onto her blouse. Her entire face looked as though it had slid...
