When we’re PMSing, get out of the way world, for we are slaves to the impulses of our hormones. And they are hungry! They are harassing us, screaming Salty! Sweet! Both at once! Feed me now, bitch!

Recently, Ami and I were talking and she asked if I could help her get her funny back. If you read this site, you know that Ami is usually a very funny person, so her question came as a bit of a shock.
“You lost your funny?” I said. “When? How? Where?”
“Well, I came back from Paris, and then my boyfriend and I broke up, and then it was my birthday and the holidays, and then I started doing a lot of hot yoga … there’s this guy who’s always in my class and he smells really bad, and once his shorts came down–”
