I love this world that the SC justices think we live in, full of bumbling but well-meaning police officers and sidewalk protestors who genuinely want to engage in meaningful back-and-forth dialogue. Apple-cheeked children sell lemonade on every corner, and eminent domain is never, ever misused. I imagine it's like a… » 12/15/14 4:21pm Monday 4:21pm

Last time I came home after a weekend trip, there was half a family-size bucket of chicken in the fridge, bourbon and beer bottles littering the counter, and the better half of a large, elegant fruit tart sitting out in a way that suggested it had never seen a fridge and had been gradually picked-at over the course of… » 12/15/14 4:11pm Monday 4:11pm

My husband had an apartment next to a person who played thunderously loud merengue music literally 24/7. It was especially weird because I knew there was a baby in the apartment - how can you have a baby and play earsplitting music all the time? Every moment, morning and night in his apartment was accompanied by a… » 12/14/14 10:46pm Sunday 10:46pm

Yeah, I'm glad it works for them, but she's a far better person than me. As hormonal as I was while pregnant, if I was just sitting at home all puffy and achy and alone, eating ice cream while he was off "meeting his needs" with another woman...OMG I just got mad even thinking about it. And he should be cheerfully… » 12/14/14 7:13pm 12/14/14 7:13pm

I'm amused at the implication that being coupled means I shave my legs. If anything, I shave muuuuuuch less than I did when I was single. The husband has come to terms with my natural squalor. » 12/14/14 12:53am 12/14/14 12:53am

Don't hate me, but I have to take an opportunity to brag. I just returned to work at (BIG EVIL FINANCIAL COMPANY) and found out they have a SWANK-ass pumping room! I'd heard so many horror stories about pumping in janitor closets, so I was super thrilled to find they had nice pumping accomodations. It has special… » 12/12/14 2:02pm 12/12/14 2:02pm

Yeah, acting out isn't necessarily indicative of a learning disability or a bad home life. Example: I once dated a guy who was professionally diagnosed, by a licensed therapist, with "being a little shit." And he probably deserved it, lol. » 12/11/14 7:26pm 12/11/14 7:26pm

I've been giving behbeh about two baths a week, but agree - it seems like way less than other parents I know. They all do it as a bedtime routine, though, and I don't get how that works, since baths pretty much wake my little dude up rather than calming him into sleepy time mode. » 12/10/14 2:40pm 12/10/14 2:40pm

As the recent new mom of a very wanted kid, it's done nothing but reaffirm my conviction that it's better to not have kids unless you're ABSOLUTELY sure you really want them. I love my son, but being a parent is a lot of work. If you're not doing it as a volunteer labor of love, it seems like it might be awful. » 12/09/14 11:25am 12/09/14 11:25am

Didn't you read? She gave her enthusiastic support! I'm sure she totally did a happy little dance after being given the honor of hearing his mighty thought-ejaculate. Because women be crazy, always hating your script and then saying they love it just to them run out and say they hate it the next day for no reason… » 12/08/14 5:32pm 12/08/14 5:32pm

When black people just walk around flagrantly waving their race in the faces of those poor, poor, put-upon police officers. I mean, these minorities don't even have the decency to try to pretend that they're white! » 12/08/14 12:52pm 12/08/14 12:52pm
