@fabel Um, except I explained past just an "umno" and you were still like "no, it can't be! you must be mistaken."

I don't see how it's hard to understand that yes, even "in the moment" it's not always better, because I know what will come of it later and it is not good, and that can be very distracting. Brain is the biggest sex organ and all that.

Two years ago my mom screamed that I "ruined Christmas" because my boyfriend and I left to visit his family...the DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS. He missed Christmas day with his family to spend it with us, but no, I still managed to ruin a day that had already happened! I am the Doctor Who of holiday-ruining!

@Inconceivable! You should leave the dragon in random parts of the room and yell, "WHERE ARE MY DRAGONS???!!!"

It's probably a lot less scary for the kids than sticking weird tools in their nose.
Plus, the warm breath of the mom probably loosens things up.
I don't know. You love somebody who's kind of helpless. They're sick. So you help them. As long as they are little kids, it doesn't seem that gross to me. Little kids are so close to still being physically a part of their moms and dads anyway.

Team "I really want to like BB cream" here. I tried the Garnier one after it was brought up on the 'Pin, but I was underwhelmed. The coverage was pretty light for my taste, but it was still super hard to remove at the end of the day. Then I got a few bumps. It's been relegated to backup status.

Currently trying Physician's Formula's "Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Foundation." It's got cosemeceuticals! Science! It does most of the things a BB cream is supposed to do (coverage, skin tone evening/brightening, SPF) and my skin plays pretty nicely with it.

Which brings me to LW 2: Do you know about Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep database? It's strictly about rating the ingredients of the make-up, not reviewing the total package, but it's neat...neat in the way that inspires freak-outs over one's choice of shampoos. I could read it for hours.
