The answer I've been giving to this question my whole life is "astronaut," and boy are the trailers for Gravity driving that home.
California's: "Uh sorry, I ordered this with dressing on the side?"
@She was a retail whore
I'm doing an MFA at SFSU right now and had a similar reaction!
It looks like darioles are made in wee ramekins.
@LacunaKale On the same campus as the one in the article, in the student health center, there's a warning not to flush tampons that includes an asterisk directing you to a footnote that says, "Written by a FEMALE student!" Like that is a typed part of the official, photocopied warning.
I'm glad you posted this, because I'm in the middle of that issue right now, and I had skipped that story because I thought it was just straight up about running, and I get exhausted and anxious just reading about intense athletics. I read the weightlifting article in the issue before in a sort of stupefied terror, wondering why why why anyone would ever do this to themselves and periodically grasping my own muscles to make sure they weren't ripping apart. But now I'll go back and read this one. I like to read about cheating!
You guys know so much about dishwashers! I wish I had written this when I wasn't about to move out of this apartment with its godforsaken food-bit-whirler!
@Mandalas I both soak and rinse them, I swear! It doesn't matter! Nothing matters!
@frigwiggin I agree. I've never gone through anything like losing a fiance to cancer, but when bad things happen to me, small or large, I get immediate relief just from the act of telling people about it. I think some part of me feels like if I can talk about it, then it's not unspeakably bad, so I know I can eventually cope with it.
I'd probably react much like "Sharon" did. Anyone who's uncomfortable can always hide it from their Facebook feed.
@stuffisthings I almost included a line about how even though they were the most serene republic, they had declared war on good music.
