On A Letter To My Aunties

Having grown up in a European immigrant community, I know that my experience wasn't exactly the same as yours, but I definitely recognize that feeling.

On A Letter To My Aunties

@susan@twitter the silent judgment of family friends is probably even worse than the stupidly-said-out-loud kind, which my sister has experienced at least once. (I don't drink beer, so I haven't been subjected to it. I also don't really drink coffee, so that usually gives them something to gripe about.)

On The Best Time I Was A Child Con Artist

On Bill Cosby's Pound Cake

Still not sure that "If my mom knew I stole something, I'd be soooo dead" = "I stole a can of Coca-Cola so the cops shot me", but maybe that was an episode of the Cosby show that doesn't rerun very often?

On Ask Baba Yaga: How Do I Commit to the Life I Have Instead of the Life I Could Have?

@Poubelle Baba yaga's answer, while honest, was kind of tough love - I like your approach to it. Very positive. Very classic Hairpin.

On A Wishlist From The Pit of Despair

So heartbreaking, so relatable, but also I had managed to repress all memories of the "pit of despair" experiment and those poor little monkeys and now I remembered and I think I just need a minute I'll be outside maybe I should make some tea and take deep breaths does anyone have a tissue?
