Quantcast

By Lucienne on I'm Never Cooking Again (Not That I Ever Cooked Much to Begin With, So There's Been Very Little Change)

@Lisa Frank I'm not sure why "Montessori-educated cattle" made me laugh so much, but it did, well done.

I think it's because I keep picturing them in classrooms?

Great essay! I too have a shameful past with Ayn Rand. At my grandmother's urging I read "Atlas Shrugged", but I was older, 21. When I finished I thought, "She makes some good points." Then I thought, "Wait a minute…all those poor people died…and that speech… and that rich-man's 'utopia'… Oh holy fuck, that bitch was evil. And so is my grandmother! I'll never touch Rand again."

We've all been there. Admit it! We all have our shameful Ayn Rand secrets.

When I was in the sixth grade, I purchased Janet Jackson's "janet" album. My mother asked to borrow it, but before I gave it to her, I painstakingly scribbled out the word Virgin (the record label) on the CD and liner notes. I don't know why.

I want that kind of olive oil. The virgin but not sex-related but embarrassed anyway because Moommmmmmmm.

But picturing the defeated and feckless sperm is my FAVORITE part.

I've had the same doctor for almost 8 years and I. Love. Her. We talk about house remodels and complain about our husbands during the duck lips part. I can't wait to hear what she did with her kitchen next month.

Things you never want to hear during your first exam with a new gynecologist: "oh, you look familiar, have I seen you before?"

Oof, right in the awkward high-school-aged feels. Lovely read.

I just got married and tried so hard to be the laid back bride and OH GOD IT'S TOO REAL
