I got dumped a couple weeks ago. Last night, a friend encouraged me to just throw a profile up on okcupid. I did not even finish writing the first part of my bio (tomboyish lady seeks lovely femme) when I got a message from some dude, I quote “Hey bae, I want to taste your sweet pussa”.
This happened to me, too. Guess we faked it a bit _too_ well!
Good thing prestigious judges, like, for instance this guy’s mentor, don’t have a history of sexually harassing their female clerks or anything...
I was going to say this. I know of a federal judge who hires lots of female clerks, always a majority female, and always based on attractiveness. Not to say those women aren’t deserving and accomplished but the judge doesn’t earn any feminist kudos for his approach to hiring...
I would consider these numbers an achievement if not for law professors Amy Chua and her husband Jay Rubenfeld telling female law students that those women had to look attractive because that’s what Kavanaugh valued in the hiring process.
Yes they absolutely do! I was on a train once and a woman was eating a salad and the driver shamed her over the loudspeaker. He said if she kept eating her salad he would stop the train and make everyone get off. Granted this was a few years ago, but metro used to be very strict about the “no eating” rule. The…
those first two suggestions are barth worthy. But let me know if they work!
I second spicy food and tea steeped with raw ginger. If you have a comfy chair, sleep sitting up so you continue to drain and actually get the rest you need to fight the cotton in your head. Good luck--I’m on the tail end of a head cold and am just now able to turn my head without wincing in pain. It’s fucking bliss.
Saline rinse squeezy bottle thing. Honey + lemon or mint tea.
Hot and Sour soup. Check the local Chinese food restaurants.
Super hot chili! Mexican food in general.
It is unfathomably gross. But it clears the sinuses, and has even prevented us from getting any sicker. I call it the hard reset juice, because it does make me feel like my body has shut down and rebooted, in sheer horror and disgust.
Do you live near any Pollo Tropicals? They make the BEST latin chicken soup damn near as good as my Puerto Rican grandma’s - chock full of vitamins. I just go into the drive-thru and order one large. Feel better!
I actually went and grabbed my partner’s nonna’s recipe list for you...
I love spicy food for congestion. Get some curry or other spicy dish, as fiery as you can stand it, and enjoy with a side of tissues and a big glass of water. Hot foods will make your nose run, in a good way. They’re also an expectorant, so you’ll cough up anything in your lungs, too.
Not a home remedy, but saline in a can from the drugstore! Expensive (not in the scheme of things, but it does feel weird to pay for water) and since it’s just saltwater, no side effects and actually does help.
Brew some black tea, add a squirt of lemon juice and a splodge of honey. My dr told me to try it when I was ill over Christmas and couldn’t take anything because of my other meds. If you have a sore throat ice cream/popsicles help numbing it. I hope you feel better soon!
Hot toddy, emphasis on hot.
I you’re desperate get a teaspoon of honey, crush a clove of garlic on to it then drench the whole thing with finely ground black pepper. Open, chew and swallow.
Pickle juice and oregano oil. It’s my go-to remedy.
