I also like pomegranate tea and oatmeal raisin cookies. Don't hate.
Also good for the kids. They encourage having slow readers read to the family pets. A dog will listen to a kid read a whole book one damn sssyl-la——-ble at a time, and it will never get frustrated, or correct their pronunciation, or start playing Angry Bird because it can’t stand listening to the slowness any more. The dog will look at the kid approvingly, because, human. Human is talking. Human is interacting.
So this is a great win-win.

That’s ingenious - good for the kids and the cats (or dogs or pets in general!)

the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
do u ever put on a shirt and look in the mirror and go
"no. this does not represent the full potential of my boobs"
Yes. And sometimes “no.This is far too much potential. I don’t want my boobs to outshine me.”
