"Serena Friedman's main interest is writing, but she makes time for an extensive walk every day. she is a registered medical record librarian, and has also worked as a legal secretary. She lives in West Orange, and has two children and six grandchildren."
At the creative writing class occasionally mentioned in her stories, Serena must have been taught to "write what you know". The typo-heavy short stories of this vanity pressing reveal that Serena's main concerns in life include getting confused and lost in the airport, that time she fell and broke her hip, attempting to find a convenient and inexpensive place to buy a pastrami sandwich, and most importantly, taking long walks. It's true, Serena's slowed down since her youthful "age of daring do", but she still might be a few steps ahead of senility, depending on whether the above blurb printed on the back cover is clever or naive.
Serena isn't like the grandmother who's always trying to hip you to a cool new musician she saw on PBS the other day. I hate old people like that who cling at contemporary culture as if their wrinkles could go away. Serena's grandson wears mud covered overalls and eats fresh baked chocolate chip cookies while Serena sits on a vinyl covered sofa and offers him a nickel if he'll swipe some cheddar from next door neighbor's fridge. Serena's good friends with that neighbor, isn't spry enough to get away with the prank herself, but knows it's a good prank just the same. The neighbor won't mind, Serena'll buy her more later. Plus Serena does love the cheese. That's my kind of grandma.
