My new philosophy:
If you don’t have a good time, you have a good story.
I have not had a good time during, before or since the Kavanaugh hearings. I let it rip on Bust.com: I See You, Old White Men. Wish I thought anyone but the choir would read it.
In lighter news:
1. I tried to fight off Fortnite with an all-you-can-screen weekend. Spoiler alert: Fortnite won.
2. My 11-year-old recently texted his dad about school. “Mom? What’s the difference between dismal and abysmal?”
3. Turns out that green grapes launder beautifully.
You know. The usual.
