I have a good friend with this. They’re not religious, but OA helped a lot, along with therapy and an OA sponsor. If not a twelve step program, perhaps seek out group therapy in addition to one-on-one.
Can we play “Find Tiffany in this photo” for the next 4 years? I think that would be fun.
Extra points for using the word “hurled.”
When I was a kid, I had my tonsils out. I desperately wanted some trail mix. It hurt like hell, but it was worth it. I still have a similar level of decision-making and impulse control.
I was dealing with a stomach bug the other weekend. My dad made smoked ribs and even though I knew eating them would be a bad idea, I ate them anyway. They were delicious. 4 hours later they made a reappearance. Still worth it.
This is the level of self-control I have around candy. You could 100% guarantee me I’d puke, and I’d still eat the candy.
My son has decided that the little hard chunks you sometimes get in brown sugar are chocolate, and he cannot be convinced otherwise. So, anytime he sees the bag of brown sugar, he asks for the pieces of chocolate if I find any inside. This has happened a lot lately because I’ve been working on fully replicating my…
My brother and I had our own elaborate judicial system, so when one of us owed the other one for some reason we had to drink lemon juice! We did it for years. We would have like these verbal treaties like, “if you punch me in that same spot on my shoulder again you have to drink the lemon juice, and in exchange I will…
We may no longer have Barack and Michelle, but at least Anne will bring us cookies. ❤
The Wrap reports Friday that reclusive comedian Dave Chappelle will host NBC’s Saturday Night Live on November 12. The musical guest for Chappelle’s episode—which is, somehow, his first—will be A Tribe Called Quest, “who are releasing their first and last studio album in 18 years.”
The premonitions have also come in handy, I must say. How did I know that jumping off the couch would end badly?
I want the power to knock down certain people with a look and a snarl!
This “biting the hand that feeds you” idea is so prevalent in conversations about gay rights too. It’s infuriating. It was particularly intense in the ‘domestic partnership vs. same-sex marriage’ era. I wish I had had your response in my head for those conversations...
I’ve never managed to put it that eloquently before, but apparently the number of time I’ve heard this lately has solidified it in the back of my mind. These fucking dudes, man. A right means no one gave it to me; that’s the definition! You can’t take my shit away and ask me to act grateful for literally hundreds of…
I need to steal your comment to spit out at someone the next time I have this conversation. Very well put.
Same with me. Mine are all liberal, too. The Trump relatives - whatever, I can handle that. Not interested in the racism and sexism of the white dudes who masturbate about how they voted for Obama and joined the Occupy movement on FB.
I co-hosted a party last month and the saddest/funniest thing I ever saw was the group of sad, drunk white guys that eventually congregated in a corner to lament that there were no conservative candidate to represent them. As a woman, I was like: boo fucking hoo, dudes.
The worst people during this election on my feed have been Privileged White Dudes. Seriously. The ones I’ve been dealing with have fully taken on the vocabulary of the oppressed and applied it to themselves ever since Bernie didn’t get the nod.
