Mrs. Hillman: You're called the "sandwich generation" because you have to care for young children on one side, and aging parents on the other. Of course, your "children" are dogs and you send them to doggy day care... ...And you've been texting "senior centers" for help since your aging parents arrived. As usual, you've redefined your title to suit your busy, busy lives. They're not the "sandwich generation". They're the "take-out sandwich generation".
