Hey. Hi. How's everyone holding up? I wanted to take a quick second to thank the community for being such a kind, safe, and helpful place post-election. I'm finally hitting the point where I'm not spontaneously crying every few hours, which is great, because it takes me a long time to get my eyeliner wings even in the morning.
I know I generally try to keep things (semi) thematic in COTW, but this week the theme is "things that made Caitlin laugh" because that was RARELY happening. Anyways.
First up, did you know SweetBeans' grandmother was savage? From "I'm a Model Who Will Never Date Male Models Ever Again":
I FEEL PERSONALLY ATTACKED. Kidding, no. Is that grandmother Patti Stanger, though? I'm a little perplexed but mostly laughing because I think if I don't I'll cry. Tell me about all the weird shit your grandmother has said to you.
The next comment comes from SweatPants4Life in "IT HAPPENED TO ME: I Got Period Blood All Over My Crush's Bed":
I mean, yes, obviously, do not date anyone who shames you about your period or won't go down on you, or anyone who tells you to "calm down", but also don't date anyone who plans on living out their life like a Bumbling Helpless Dad in a sitcom, because we all deserve better than that.
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
