Zany.
In the same way creativity works, not releasing the love from within, and any suppression of it, materializes in toxic ways.

"Mamaw felt disloyalty acutely. She loathed anything that smacked of a lack of complete devotion to family. In her own home, she'd say things like 'I'm sorry I'm so damned mean,' and 'You know I love you, but I'm just a crazy bitch.' But if she knew of anyone criticizing so much as her socks to an outsider, she'd fly off the handle. 'I don't know those people. You never talk about family to some stranger. Never.''

From the book Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance. Page 41.

  • It really pisses me off when I go to a restaurant and see a dumbass customer get in the face of the host/hostess because they're mad about not being seated right away since their group is incomplete. It's like, that's not how restaurants in NYC work, you idiot! Just stay home and be rude to your stove instead, jackass.
  • When it's muggy, hot, and you don't have your air conditioner installed yet in your apartment, it's when you're sitting in the air-conditioned subway ride home that one realizes what a luxury the cool air on your skin at that moment truly is.
  • Reading has been replaced by scrolling.
  • I spent all of my childhood avoiding the bathroom at exactly 12am because I was terrified of Bloody Mary appearing in the mirror to kill me. During high school when I slept late, I was sure to always shower or enter the bathroom at 12:05am or after just to be on the safe side.  And now at 35, the memory of living most of my young life like this came flooding back. And I can't remember at what age I stopped fearing the bathroom at the stroke of midnight. All of it just makes me want to have a bloody mary at a bar in celebration.
  • The theme song to the podcast "Late Night Whenever with Michelle Buteau" is catchy and has been stuck in my head for hours. And the podcast is super funny, too.
  • Button-down shirts buttoned all the way to the collar + tucked into pants = the uniform for the truly uptight.
