Love that persists through heartbreak, struggle and pain, and manages to trump it all in the end. I’m talking about Cinderella stories and black-and-white kisses that make us weep— tales so rare that they seem unachievable.

But all magical romance novels and love stories have a muse: the knee-weakening embraces, long stares and growing-old-together couples who make us forget that we live in a world of divorce and prenuptial agreements, and, instead, give us hope that the unachievable actually exists. Claire and Bill Oldenburg, my grandparents, are my hope. Keep reading »

This Real Life Interpretation Of A Conference Call Is Hilariously, Awkwardly Accurate

conference-call
BEEEEP ... "We Lost Tyler Again"

Anybody who’s ever been on a conference call knows that a few things are always to be expected:

  1. Awkward conversation between the first two participants until others join.
  2. Two people starting to speak at once, both insisting the other continue.
  3. One person who keeps getting disconnected, and *beep* “It’s me again, sorry about that.” And so on…

Well, YouTube geniuses Tripp and Tyler have turned all of the awkward interactions on a conference call into a reality that’s so accurate and hilarious, it makes me want to call a meeting with our LA team just to see who I would “be” in this scenario. Watch the video above and then share this with every person you know. Maybe you should announce it via conference call … just a thought.
