“Who’s the boss of the world?”

Asked my then six year old daughter.

My straight out answer:

Welllllllll, the boss of our world is the Prime Minister of Canada.

Silence. A sure sign of absorbing the information. Testing for flaws in her world perception; then asks: “How do you become the Prime Minister?”


Entering dicey territory, thankfully dodging the “her” versus “them” (when it was more certain 99.9% surely really a “him” in a tribe of boys, adjusting to her sphere of understanding)

I responded by saying: “Usually, a Prime Minister is a lawyer or an accountant.

When she burst out:

Well then–I’m gonna be a lawyer!”

I write about what appeals to Yuppies who are 50 plus and wanting to be the best of anything and everything! I provide insights and build camaraderie among YUPPIES of the 1980s, an impactful demographic born in the 60s, went into Junior High | Middle School in the mid 70s and graduated from High School 1979, followed by the roller coasters in the 1980s. Regardless of location, religion, gender identity, age, culture, beliefs, education or economic standing: EVERYONE is famous in their own world:: having the starring role. An expression, a reflection or opinion using the positive vibe that attracts ALL the movers & shakers of their WORLD.
