@gyip "as much as I love that we're publishing erotica in the comments section..."
@Meaghan O'Connell Also can we all agree that Mike sounds like the perfect person to work for?
@xtinamartinson Agreed on the mommy talk (though I'm not a parent)! Love it!
We will miss you dreadfully! Do you know if there's a way to subscribe to just your posts at The Cut? I somehow figured out how to add just Ask Polly to my RSS but I don't know how to add just a specific author. I don't want to miss out on your writing!
@TheDilettantista I'm sorry to do this, but my Real Talk is that I left behind most of my books in my parent's basement when I moved (thinking I would only move across the country for a year or so, so it wasn't worth the expense of bringing them with me) and now, 2.5 years later, I regret it several times a month

Now I'm a 9-5er dating an artist and I feel like a drag for needing to go to bed at a reasonable hour. I feel outraged that this has been happening all my life and I never even noticed!

Remember when this happened on The Office? UGH
