: : : : Is that a boast or a complaint?

: : : I'm sure her dermatologist is pleased. But was there a question?

: : Perhaps Jennifer is saying that she is a rolling stone, since a rolling stone gathers no moss. Of course, she may have meant "There's no moss growing under my feet," which is the way it's usually said. That means, of course, that she keeps moving, so moss doesn't have time to grow under her feet, as in the rolling stone bit. Right, Jennifer? .SS.

: I thought it was "grass" that doesn't grow under active people.

Thank you, Brian. I'm glad to see that the grass doesn't grow under your feet. SS
