Ah, the 70s

Postacademic and I have a lot in common, as we discovered during our first real conversation, which took place at Spats (points if you've been to Spats). She was a punk and I was a hippie, but our parents are divorced, we have sisters named S who are three years younger than us, we spent time (different time) at two of the same educational institutions, and we like many of the same books. Now it turns out that as children we both learned to chart our biorhythms (points if your elementary school teachers taught you to chart your biorhythms--more points if you still do it!)

Spats, for those interested, is still in existence. I know my friend Novel wants to buy it and turn it into a better version of itself if it ever comes up for sale.

I had so forgotten about biorhythms until you made the connection! Do read Alison Bechdel's _Fun Home_ if you haven't already - for many reasons, but particularly for its vision of early 1970s childhood.

I've eaten at Spats in Providence (many times) - is that the one, or is there another?
