This effort by #HandmaidsTale to make me sympathize with Serena is ... not happening. I just can't. Her boo-hooing about parenthood not being just biology is ... no way. It's true! But not from her.

@staceyNYCDC And I don't feel like there's some reckoning where you hear people say, "My parents were supporters of violent attacks on civil rights workers. " It's like it vanished from polite conversation.

@staceyNYCDC I have been so impressed by this podcast, and I was thinking exactly this just last week. While listening, I thought, "The people who did these things, the worst of these things, beating and shooting people? Even if they're dead, kids they raised are alive and voting. "

Watching Forky reminded me of the great @meganganz joke featured in the This American Life episode about The Onion: the headline, "Spork Used As Knife." They rejected it out of hand in the room, and I'm still irate when I listen to it.

One of the events that inspired EVVIE DRAKE STARTS OVER was a time when I got extremely lost in the fog at night in Maine and pulled over in the parking lot of a fire station to look at my map. A man came out and was suddenly magically at the window. I showed him the map.

Please, please don't be the person who lectures that if you take a moment to enjoy anything, you've apparently forgotten all the pain in the world. All joy takes place at the same time as all tragedy. If you've ever had fun, you've done it while people suffer. It's not a contest.

Make sure you're not clenching your teeth. See if you can drop your shoulders from up by your ears. Take a couple deep and slow breaths. Wiggle your toes. If closing your eyes makes you dizzy, you need a break. (A few tips from many anxiety years.)

To all of you struggling: Take care of yourself. Go somewhere quiet. See a movie. Meditate. Tell someone you trust that you need them to give you a hug and not ask you why. Go home; mental health counts as health for going home sick purposes. Talk if you need. You're important.

I want to address something Jimmy Kimmel says here. "Comedy is very democratic. The people who are great, rise to the top; the people who are good, rise to the middle; and the people who aren’t good, don’t make it."
