@sea ermine @sea ermine I love it, too! I like to hear what little tasks other people put off, it's interesting! I feel like I would be a great candidate for a less-stressful 1 Thing because I put lame mildly stressful things off (unlike Mike) but also don't get too down on myself when I further put off the thing(s.) For example, I've needed to get my car inspected for all of February. But then it became March BUT there's a 5 day grace period so was going to do it by the 5th. But then I still didn't get it done until today....but I did it! Yay!
@moreadventurous I haven't drunk Lone Star in forever (since, obvs, it's pretty blah) and never thought about drinking just for TD, maybe I will now, the marketing scheme is spreading!
@sherlock I think some more proof in defense of the "unreliable narrator" theory is that Maggie was very one dimensional previously because only the two men were being interviewed but when she came in for her interview, she was suddenly also a narrator and fleshed her character out a bit. It would also be a reasoning behind the kinda porny way (and more tepid way, with his wife) Marty's sex scenes have been shown. Also, all that aside, Beth said she'd read about him as a hero in the papers, possibly had some baggage related to older men (her uncle) and he gave her that money/saw her potential at the ranch. So I think there are plenty o' reasons she'd be interested.
@Bonnie St. Clair Also, what is his pooping situation? It can't be good.
@xtinamartinson Also, isn't true that all people (with kids or no) often complain, especially on social media, about an assortment of things in their daily life? I feel like my parent friends have a good balance of "yay my baby is awesome" to "ew this thing about having a baby sucks"...I think it's sad that someone thinks that saying that it's cute that your baby waves to pictures frames is going to make some upset. That's not overshare, that's just share. If you said "it's cute when my baby poops all over my face and then I eat it because I love him so much" then that's STFU material.
I love it for tons of reasons but it helps that my dad also likes it and since he's not on the internet reading about it all the time, all of my theories and analysis is new to him!
@bgprincipessa I loved that tag but felt the only one missing was "big hug mug"
@garli My husband is always have tummy trouble, he has a gluten thing but also just random "gotta get to the bathroom now and say there for hours" things so yeah, it's been a go-to excuse for him since he has lived it!
@halloliebchen I'm not even afraid of it so much as totally certain it will happen, usually the real migraine will strike not just on a weekend but when something really cool is going on. But I still wheel it out sometimes and take the punishments because some days I just CAN'T.
@Mike Dang I have the utmost respect for you, Mike Dang! So I am sorry it came off as harsh but she did open herself up for comment (as anyone who writes about themselves online does) and it seems especially noteworthy on a site that is about money to point out that it's irresponsible financially to get pregnant without insurance. If there was a reason for them doing it that way it would have been worth explaining if she didn't want people to comment that this was an odd financial choice. I have a co-worker who thought she was physically incapable of getting pregnant but then surprise! she got pregnant so maybe it was a situation like that and if she chooses not to share that kind of info, of course that's fine. If she can afford to do things out of pocket then that's great!
