"Didnt I stand there once, white-knuckled, gripping the just-lit taper, swearing Id never go back?

Quotes About Baby Cousins

"When did you first feel like a grown woman and not a girl?" We wrote down our answers and shared them, first in pairs, then in larger groups. The group of women was racially and economically diverse, but the answers had a very similar theme. Almost everyone first realized they were becoming a grown woman when some dude did something nasty to them. "I was walking home from ballet and a guy in a car yelled, ‘Lick me!" "I was babysitting my younger cousins when a guy drove by and yelled, ‘Nice ass." There were pretty much zero examples like "I first knew I was a woman when my mother and father took me out to dinner to celebrate my success on the debate team." It was mostly men yelling shit from cars. Are they a patrol sent out to let girls know theyve crossed into puberty? If so, its working." - Author: Tina Fey

Quotes About Apartment

"I needed a vacation. I needed 5 women. I needed to get the wax out of my ears. My car needed an oil change. Id failed to file my damned income tax. One of the stems had broken off of my reading glasses. There were ants in my apartment. I needed to get my teeth cleaned. My shoes were run down at the heels. I had insomnia. My auto insurance had expired. I cut myself every time i shaved. I hadnt laughed in 6 years. I tended to worry when there was nothing to worry about. And when there was something to worry about, i got drunk." - Author: Charles Bukowski
