@DullHypothesis When my dad is between girlfriends, I always get the privilege of listening to his cost analysis of produce at Costco vs. Whole Foods and his ethical and economic conundrua wrt to conventional vs. organic bananas.
Is it wrong I always call my mom at 7 p.m. on Mondays? And then at 7:55, I conveniently say, "Oh, I better let you go! It's almost time for The Bachelor/ette/DWTS!"
Because I do.
@Ophelia Broadcast News. I think.
I have a lot of feelings, but mostly that I need to start mixing my tartans.
I need an answer key.
Our mean girls were also in the marching band.
Our class president was sweet, smart and overweight.
Our most popular guys were also burnout adjacent.
Our drama club was full of cheerleaders.
Our homecoming queen was in AP Calculus.
Will this work OK with my metal French press?
Seriously, though, the glass French presses are just an explosion waiting to happen.
@RubeksCube My grandmother goes by her middle name, too. It's actually passed down through several generations as a middle name, so we share it. Sometimes, when my dude wants to tease me, he refers to me by my old lady middle name.

@werewolfbarmitzvah Samuel. There you go.
If it helps, all the new boy babies I know have Con(n)or, Peter, Paul and/or Benjamin as part of their name. And I know way more than four new boy babies.
@iceberg At some point, all names are coinage names. My first name is a noun/place that became a name relatively recently. And, yet, people STILL mispronounce and misspell it on a regular basis.
However, I snark relentlessly on people who intentionally misspell our name. IT IS A THING. GET IT RIGHT.
