Eden M. Kennedy

mission accomplished, pal

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

This morning as I dug through my underwear drawer a shallow thought-sperm penetrated a fertile idea-egg floating (oh so very lonely) in my brain, and I began to wonder how we decided to call these things "thongs." It used to mean flip-flops, a sandal that's anchored between your toes. Now it means underwear that anchors your camel toe?

As usual, Internet, I'm just putting it out there, I leave it up to you to tell me what it means.
