IamA former NYC Mad Men-esque secretary who turned into a hippie and attended Woodstock. AMA!
My short bio: I was born in Brooklyn NY and shortly after high school became a secretary in NYC. Wall St, not Madison Avenue, but still very similar to the world of Mad Men.
I started going to Vietnam War protests on my lunch breaks, and the climate quickly changed. I became a member of the counter-culture and attended Woodstock in 1969.
My son mentioned me on a comment thread recently and there was interest in an AMA, so he will be helping me field questions today at 3:00 PM EST.
EDIT: I have to go out to aerobics, but I 'll be back at around 5:30 EST - will answer more questions then. Thanks!
EDIT: 8:30 EST - Thank you so much reddit! I'm headed out to shoot pool with my son, so that's that. I'm usually not one to reflect back... I try to keep my head where my feet are, but this was a lot of fun. Peace and love!
