@paddlepickle Good point! Yes, I am a cycle commuter and a weepy ride is no biggie especially on a cold day, because then really who can tell the difference, but I would not want to have to sit on a bus/subway with a puffy face.
Maybe coffee shop within three blocks of said person's apartment as a compromise? On their turf, but not in their actual home.
@themegnapkin Agreed, except I am also the wierdo who prefers being broken up with by phone (I mean, do check where I am/make sure it's fairly private) soooo I could be an outlier.
Unless you're cohabitating and there's a sticky wicket (like we have to sort this out before someone flounces off) I'd say: find a tucked away spot near a back exit at a coffee shop. Buy that person a scone. Don't be surprised if person throws scone in your face.
Ditto on not wanting break up memories in the actual place that I live.
I know this is a sponsored post, but let me just say that I love shandies and shizz that I can make in my crockpot. So spot on advertisers, spot on.
@OhMarie I'd go with 'Flub', which would be short of 'Mother Flubbin Kitten'. Otherwise names that reference fuzziness or smallness or a combination thereof.
ETA: And I can never have a kitten, so that name is forever free for the taking.
@coolallison Oh I am counting down the minutes. Your list is banging, in particular #3 and #4. :) I'm camping this weekend, which I should add to my list, because it will be nice to be out among the trees and rocks (really, it's just humanity that is on my shit-list right now).
@adorable-eggplant I just thought of one more thing: margaritas.
@stonefruit It's the same for objections to catcalling: the response is always something like, "I'm calling you a hottie, shut up or pretend to enjoy it." And when people try to explain that even for people who do fit the face-of-the-future hazel-eyed mould this kind of stuff is insulting and degrading, there's always a backlash. Don't get it? Fine, sorry you cannot have some basic empathy.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Cannot wait, I'm having a tough day, so the best I can come up with is whiskers on kittens. Those are nice. Everything else? Not nice.
@up cubed DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD....: (those are frowny faces + tears, I cannot even with this fetishizing of mixed identities)
ETA: And it's all so so people can smuggly pat themselves on the back for being 'accepting'.
@Woman Laughing Alone With Boas Sayyy it! Or just give 'em a big old link here, because this is perfect.
