"I’m so out of the loop. You always know what’s going on."
"Why do you get up so early?"
"You have no idea how lucky you are to have free time. When I go home from work I have a second job with my kids."
"You look healthy."
Agreed. But also, I am sometimes the person who says the vaguely insulting thing. Like the other day, I was having dinner with two of my dearest friends, one who is a parent of two and one who is working on her PhD, and they had just finished telling each other what they envied about each other’s respective lives (e.g. “I clean up poop all day and you get to do intellectual things!” and ”You’re actually doing important things and I’m just reading obscure biblical literature!”) And I finally said, “I don’t envy either of your lives.”
Which was true. But probably insulting.
(fortunately because they know and love me they knew what i meant)
ok so i think i finally found a category where tumblr is better than pinterest and that’s food
on pinterest if you search recipes they’re like “try a skinny mom pop! put 3 strawberries on a stick and add a little drizzle of white chocolate! way tasty and way healthier than most dessert options out there!”
tumblr food tag is like “put 15 snickers bars in a bigger fucking snickers bar you beautiful disaster”
