I’m with you on the Brussels. I’ve only seen strawberry Veronas, but now I’m desperate to try the blueberry version.

One of my siblings has always loved ketchup, so yeah, I just bought them a pair of Heinz socks.

I was told I was a summer, but whenever I’ve had my makeup done, they want to use warm pinks and browns. And my dark blonde hair has some very subtle red in the right light.

Agreed. My parents have been together longer than Dolly and Carl and that’s exactly the kind of thing my mom would say. In fact, I’m sure she’s said something similar recently—because the pandemic means they’re at home together pretty much 24/7. But they still love each other and want to be married to each other.

The company I work for has been WFH since early in the pandemic and will continue to be indefinitely. However, they did a survey asking people’s post-pandemic preferences, and more than 50% of respondents said they wanted to work in the office 2-3 days a week. I’m never going back!

I adore my primary care doctor. She’s always running late, but that’s because she asks questions, she listens carefully and she’s thorough. Your appointment is not over until everything is taken care of—prescriptions, test orders, referrals, answers to your questions, the works.

True, but we’re talking about kids. If there’s any possible way to spread germs, they’ll do it.

That is a great idea! My mom makes incredible pies — especially apple — and is getting up there in years. She doesn’t have any pie recipes; she just assembles them as she always has. She has shown me how she does it a few times, but I’m not good at learning that way.

I occasionally think back fondly to the grilled oysters I got at the farmers market in Manzanita, Oregon. If you like oysters, you’ve got to try them grilled.

Ha! When I first heard about Squirl’s moldy jam (my next band name?) I immediately thought of Theresa May.

I’m imagining them using one of the spatulas that’s been marinating in the moldy jam bucket to scrape off more mold and...eugh.
