Newspaper Reading

This Modern Love essay did little for me overall, but I loved the part where she woke up her sister:

It was late, but I called my sister anyway, letting the phone ring until I woke her. “Hello?” she breathed.

“Turn on your computer,” I said. After I directed her to his page, we sat there in silence, our phones pressed up against our ears, our breathing uneven.

“Oh, my God,” my sister said.

“Oh, my God,” I agreed.

My sister and I would so totally do that.

Here's a horrifying piece everyone should read. As I've said many times, sometimes I feel like I just live my tiny little life in total denial of what's going on around us.

And if you want horrifying in a tiny little way, here you go. I spent yesterday afternoon on the sidelines of a soccer field covered with six year olds. I can't even imagine.
