On The Best Time My Girlfriend’s Baby Tooth Fell Out

@avocadosandwich I gotta say, I'm equal parts glad that my crooked-ass mouth got fixed up and that I didn't wear my retainer long enough for them to look perfect.

On The Fortunate Cookie

One of the sole benefits of patriarchy is that when I legitimately leave my CTA card at home, I can look cutely distraught and dude bus drivers let me go to work anyway. I don't abuse this, because I know that it's karmically related to the amount of times I get hit on my CTA bus drivers.

What I'm saying is, I'd prefer the fortune cookie route.

On Interview with a Person Who Used to Be Paralyzed

@sophia_h I was lucky enough that while I stumped the ER, my PCP caught on and gave me an MRI, which as it lit up like a christmas tree, was a pretty definitive arrow to MS. But even that relatively short route took what felt like forever. (especially since my first relapse came with mobility issues)

On Every Meal Almanzo Eats in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Farmer Boy

I don't remember ANY of this book, but I do remember how I assumed, since I knew an Alonzo, that Almanzo was a Hispanic dude. And how awesome it was that there were Hispanic people on the prairie too, and that their stories were getting told, and that any of Laura and Almanzo's kids would be halfsies like me.

It was only a few years ago that I went on a wiki binge and was horrifically disappointed by his photograph.
