Haverford School's Headmaster's Wife Gets Down and Hookahs?
Ok yes she has her own life, own identity. But like it or not, liberated gal or not, she is the wife of in effect, a high school principal. Which means, like it or not, what she does reflect on him and his teachers.
So she writes in Main Line Today Magazine about a visit to Omar's Hookah Bar. Seriously? Even if she wouldn't do it again - hookah is a lot more lethal then even regular smoking which is bad and addictive enough, and if schools are supposed to encourage students NOT to smoke, what is the message here if you are a kid reading it? Try it anyway? And Omar's is BYOB too, so is this advisable?
Not trying to be a puritan here, but this kind of just struck me as maybe she should have had a different topic? Or in addition wondering again about middle aged women coming to terms with aging? I am younger then her, but still qualify as a middle aged woman. No, I am not a parent, but the parents I know do not want their kids in hookah bars. And while I enjoyed being a teen, those days are done. I think this woman, much like Philly Post writer Kelly Rowell and her image issues just need to get a grip.
Is aging fun? Ask me again in 10 years. But right now, I know who I am, and I don't need to visit hookah bars to be that person. Jet the horse has more sense then the headmaster's wife...
