You are missed, Harold.
You think you’ve got a good thing going with Lean Pockets, and then you try a regular Hot Pocket for the first time. It’s the seeing-a-Gall-Peters-Projection-map-for-the-first-time of microwave cuisine.
Match is going great, you guys.
I’m eating Darrell Lea Liquorice and watching Frozen hair tutorials on YouTube.
I could hear my heart beating. I could hear everyone’s heart. I could hear the human noise we sat there making, not one of us moving, not even when the room went dark.
Maybe don’t start your online dating profile with “I just got out of a serious relationship that didn’t end well.”

Why is it always astonishing when someone who has any type of mental or physical disability is excelling in a particular skill?
I certainly understand that many people who have a disability have to overcome what would seem like mountains to us, but I’m not referring to their capabilities. I’m speaking to the way that their accomplishments are received. Like they are a great exception for possessing a talent.
Of course someone who is blind can have a beautiful singing voice, and of course children and adults with down syndrome or autism can play sports and excel in school. They have drive just like we do! They should be congratulated for their hard work in cultivating their skills and knowledge, not praised as some sort a miracle. It seems extremely demeaning to their efforts.
Has anyone else noticed this, or am I just a rude, cynical bitch?
